How to Contribute to a WordPress Plugin

Topher DeRosia · January 2, 2015

In this class, Topher takes a published WordPress plugin and improves it by bringing into compliance with the WordPress Coding Standards.

Beginning with a fork of the plugin on Github, Topher demonstrates how to use PHP Code Sniffer to find all the offending code, fixes it, then submits a pull request to the plugin author. 

Topher demonstrates how and why we should help improve plugins in the WordPress community.
