Announcing Professional WordPress Plugin Development 2nd Edition!

I’m very excited to announce Professional WordPress Plugin Development 2nd Edition! One of the highest rated WordPress development books ever released is back with an all new updated version for 2020!

Justin Tadlock is returning as a co-author on the new book. We have also enlisted the truly brilliant John James Jacoby to help round out the author team for the 2nd edition! The Technical Editor on this new version is Greg Rickaby, the Director of Engineering at WebDevStudios.

The 1st Edition was released almost 9-years ago and, as you can imagine, so much has changed in WordPress. This book is a deep dive into building plugins for WordPress the correct way. Every single chapter has been updated with the latest techniques and tips. We have also created entirely new chapters covering newer features including the REST API and the Gutenberg Block Editor!

Professional WordPress Plugin Development 2nd Edition is for anyone wanting to learn how to create powerful plugins for WordPress, whether just starting out, or you want to advance your skills, this book is for you!

This book has been years in the making, so I’m really excited to see it become a reality! You can track our progress on Twitter using the hashtag #PluginDevBook and pre-order on Amazon today!
