Week 5:

Advanced Topics in JavaScript

Before proceeding into JavaScript in the context of WordPress we explore some more Vanilla JavaScript at a deeper level.

Week 6:

JS in WP Plugins & Themes

Now we dig into how to enqueue all of the JavaScript we know into WordPress and use it in themes and plugins.

Week 7:

The WordPress REST API

This week we look at how to leverage the WordPress REST API in themes, plugins and even decoupled applications.  Authentication and creating custom endpoints is also covered.

Week 8:

Introduction to React and JSX

Since WordPress will now come with React built in to core, we look at how to write some native React and understand how it works.

Week 9:

Gutenberg Block Development

In our last week of formal instruction we introduce how to develop for the new "Gutenberg" Editor using React and JSX.

Weeks 10-12:

Final Projects

In our final weeks together we plan, build and review projects implementing what we have learned in the Bootcamp.  Bonus points for real world applications*
