Virtual conferences are a great way to soak up valuable knowledge from the comfort of your own home (or anywhere else you’d like to be). 

While there’s a long list of quality conferences for designers and creatives and additional events that offer resources for growing agencies and freelancers, there aren’t many that combine both through the lens of WordPress development. 

Enter DE{CODE} 2022, an all-virtual, 100% free conference for developers that focuses on the latest trends and technologies in WordPress and helps attendees sharpen their skillset around a wide variety of WordPress-related topics.

This year’s agenda was informed by the requests of previous years’ attendees and will cover topics related to eCommerce, managed WordPress hosting, headless WordPress, and the builder experience. 

If some or all of those topics are new to you, have no fear! DE{CODE} offers breakout sessions for 101 beginners as well as seasoned WordPress pros.

If you’re still on the fence, or you’re wondering what, if any DE{CODE} content might be relevant to web design or your growing agency, you’re in luck. With four separate tracks for DE{CODE} attendees, you’ll be able to choose from a variety of sessions that dive into topics like modern theming and the future of WordPress with Full Site Editing, as well as Local as a tool for agencies, with deep dives on features and workflows.

Be the Change: Introducing WP Engine’s WordPress Developer Relations 

WordPress 5.9 with Full Site Editing will empower builders in a way we haven’t seen before. To help developers navigate the transition, WP Engine formed a Developer Relations team that serves as a conduit between the WordPress project, its users, and those who build with it. Join Brian Gardner, who leads the team, as he walks through new ways you can build better sites faster.
