At WordCamp Orange County 2016 I spoke about something that I thought was going to be very simple, oEmbeds. What I found was that oEmbeds are very complicated under the hood yet make things super simple for the end user.

What is oEmbed?

oEmbed is a format for allowing an embedded representation of a URL on third party sites. The simple API allows a website to display embedded content (such as photos or videos) when a user posts a link to that resource, without having to parse the resource directly.

After my talk at OCWC I was the judge of the 2nd annual Plugin-a-Palooza, a contest for plugin developers

We had so much fun with last year’s event that we’re doing it all again: join us for Plugin-a-Palooza 2016. We want everyone to come together in the spirit of competition, show off your mad developer skills, and create a plugin that will impress the judges.
