Giving away 2 copies of Professional WordPress Plugin Development

Share this post

The title say it all – I’m giving away 2 copies of Professional WordPress Plugin Development. Two recent events spurred me to do this.

First, lately I’ve had to deal with an obscene number of plugins that are terrible. The concept behind them is great, but the execution (code) is bad enough to warrant sticking a rusty fork in my eye. I understand, writing a good plugin is no easy task. However, thanks to new information available (such as this book), there is really no excuse for a plugin to cut corners. Or have no corners at all. I want to raise awareness and promote writing plugins the right way.

Secondly, I just released my own plugin into the wild: bbPress New Topic Notifications.

Professional WordPress Plugin Development is the best (and only) book which walks you through writing a plugin properly. It covers all the APIs and best practices, so you can be sure and receive all the praises of writing an awesome plugin.

Entering to win is simple. Just leave a comment that describes a plugin you would like to see written. Example: I’d like to see a plugin that enables avatar uploads for bbPress 2.0.

Two winners will be selected and announced on Friday.

Update: Congrats to Nick P. and Mannie S. – they were the two randomly selected winners. Check your inbox for more details! I’m hoping to run another giveaway with more goodies next month!
