Developers tend to get lost in technical details.
In a system as complex as a WordPress website, where there's a lot going on behind the scenes, it can be a very valuable exercise to take a step back and analyze the different components of the whole system. This lets you get a sense of what part of the system is responsible for what end goal.
This session will give beginning and intermediate WordPress developers an overview, first of general web development, and then for the specific case of WordPress. We will briefly cover client-server architecture, and later discover how the different parts of WordPress work together to let you build sites and apps with relative ease. As it turns out, most of the skills you acquire with WordPress are valid for other domains as well, as long as you can look beyond the terminology.
My experience has shown that understanding the big picture makes it a lot easier to deal with the details, and I hope this will be true for you as well.
