As part of a University module; Content Management Systems, I was tasked with creating a website using the WordPress content management system (CMS) that would include the following deliverables: a custom or child theme, a custom plugin and the design of the website’s interface.
This project enabled me to gain a better understanding of the WordPress platform from a developers perspective by learning more about the development process when developing sites using WordPress; local to remote development, using source control and automation tools that would enable the WordPress platform, themes and plugins to be updated without affecting the live website.
