Becoming a real WordPress dev

Fall 2014 – Set up a continuous deployment pipeline for our new WordPress install using git, Composer, and Bamboo.

Early 2015 – Figure out CMB2, create our first custom template for pages.

2015 – Implement RAMP, including configuring, customizing, and extending its capabilities over the course of the year-or-so.

2016 – Establish the process for “dark launch” of content, including conceptualization of tools written in WordPress to support the process (tools actually written by co-worker).

2017 – Create “self-healing” templates to get around thorny CMB2 / RAMP issues.

Summer 2017 – Create bash / WP-CLI scripts to automate the duplication, dark launch, and swap-out of a large content area to make the process of major revisions to that area seamless.

Winter 2018 – Create a taxonomy template and use The Loop for the first time. Finally become a Real WordPress Dev.
