JMS284: How Much PHP Do You Need to Be a WordPress Developer?

This is a pretty common question I get. It’s probably a lot less than you think or the snobs and know-it-alls out there will tell you. Of course, the phrase “be a WordPress developer” is pretty subjective. So, I’m going to tackle “how much PHP do you need to know to build a WordPress plugin”. Because, generally, if you know enough PHP to build a plugin… you can probably build a theme. And, it’s a little bit more objective. Anyway, I lay out it all out in this episode and tell you the story of my very first WordPress plugin and what it lead to for me.

If you leave a rating and review of the podcast, I’d really appreciate it. It’s the main way more people find out about it which allows me to bring even more value to you as a listener. I believe that so much I’ll even give you Module 1 of my PHP 101 course for FREE if you leave me an honest review. Get the details on that here:
