Playing Nice With Others: Integrating WordPress with Other Apps

A session at WordCamp Phoenix 2012

Sunday 26th February, 2012

1:30pm to 2:00pm (MST)

Mark has a blog; and Facebook; and Twitter. He spends hours polishing stellar content on his site, only to find the best content discussions in his Twitter stream and on his Facebook wall instead of his site.
Brooke gets a last minute request from a business client. They want a job application form to auto-populate their separate customer relationship management system.

You’ve written a fantastic plugin, but your core users complain daily that they can’t use it from their iPhones.

WordPress is ready to solve all three problems.

WordPress is built to pull data from external services, to push data out to third-party systems, and to extend pluggable API gateways to other applications. If you’ve ever installed a Twitter widget, managed your comments from the iPhone/Android app, or just installed JetPack, then you’ve used all of these features.

I’ll show you not just how they work, but how you can use them on your own site.
