Video: Building sane, reusable WordPress templates with Twig and Timber

You can learn more about this session on the WPCampus 2017 website at https://2017.wpcampus.org/schedule/lightning-talks/building-sane-reusable-wordpress-templates-twig-timber/.

Session Description:
Traditional WordPress templates are written in PHP code that mixes HTML output with more advanced programming logic. The Timber plugin for WordPress lets you move the markup part of your templates into separate files written in Twig, a simple yet powerful templating language. When you separate logic from layout in this way, your themes will be easier to read, easier to edit and more portable.

In this lightning talk, Jesse will introduce the power of Timber to start simplify your themes using the versatile Twig templating language. He will also share examples of WordPress templates built with Timber, ranging from simple to advanced.

Jesse Janowiak

After being hired for his first student web developer position, Jesse taught himself HTML by watching a VHS tape he checked out from the public library. It’s a good thing he did, because it led to a career-long passion for building cool stuff on the web. As a developer for NewCity, Jesse builds custom websites for clients large and small, a majority of them in higher education. Before joining NewCity, he worked as an in-house developer at Virginia Tech and Purdue University. Before that, he wasn’t very interesting, so you may as well go read someone else’s bio now.
