I am now focusing and diverting my development skill towards wordpress plugin and theme development from scratch. I am looking for some suggestion, specially from wordpress programmers (coders) of raiseforums members, the 2 names that pop up in my mind are @Boris Beo and @Kris Hoja , As per my knowledge I think they are programmer, pardon me if anyone else here is programmer or having skill in developing plugin as a programmer and I miss the name, you are also invited to give your suggestion. I want to follow best practices and will go with oop way. So whats are your suggestion ? I have started looking at codex and using wp plugin boilerplate to start developing plugins. I started with developing a ajax search plugin. What is the best way to master wordpress plugin development ? After finishing it I will move to theme development. Also, I am open to help anyone as volunteer in wordpress plugin development, provided I can learn from them.
