Absorb WP-CLI

Did you know that every human interaction in GUI, runs the command in the terminal? Did you know that every function in WP-CLI has its equivalent in WP-CLI command? Did you know that you can translate complex WordPress queries into WP-CLI one-liners?

You are a WordPress developer, doing mostly PHP, and you struggle to understand how to use WP-CLI. Or why. I’m gonna help you think WP-CLI and increase your productivity numerous times.

Welcome to the dark side. Relax and take the cookie.

Alias WP-CLI

Everybody knows that WP-CLI makes you the most powerful person on the server. But did you know you can be the most powerful person on a remote server without ever logging into the server?

Alias is not yet another WP-CLI command. Alias is your best friend, the one who knows all your passwords. If CLI tools make you smart because your work is fast and efficient, the alias will make you a sorcerer because it will feel like magic. Ready?

WordPress through the terminal

Remember the famous “5-minute installation” process for installing WordPress? Let’s see what WP-CLI can do in 5 minutes and everything else that can happen in the terminal in 40 minutes. We might actually make WordPress instances more secure - or break them.

This is not your usual presentation talk. This is a live terminal commanding, SSHing your WordPress administration and development, and releasing the Kraken or two. Is it dangerous? Yes. Will we make errors? Most likely. But can we fix them? There's only one way to find out.

WP-CLI for PHP developers

When was the last time you tested code in production? Your own website doesn’t count.

Conversations with the Terminal, or WP-CLI for PHP developers, is the sequel of WordPress through the Terminal talk, focusing on a set of commands and tools useful for PHP developers.

This is not just a live demo of WP-CLI commands. This is zooming out and seeing WP-CLI in collaboration with other tools in the context of PHP developer needs and everyday tasks. We’ll probably release the Kraken as well.
