I started a course on WordPress development. Having fun with it. I didn't log yesterday, so today's log combines the last two days.
I'm starting to get used to writing and looking at PHP. I only touched PHP over 10 years ago. I never felt comfortable with it. I think working with React and JSX made catching on to WordPress PHP easier for me.
Also helpful are the VS Code extensions, I installed for use with my WordPress course. Brad doesn't recommend any extensions, but I added WordPress autocomplete and PHP IntelliSense ones.

It's a lot of fun actually and I'm understanding PHP (and WordPress PHP) basics for the first time. The WordPress docs are like drinking from a firehose. They're hard for me to navigate.09:48 AM - 29 Feb 2020

Interesting project. I am not a fan of WordPress, but it's certainly popular. I hope to hear about some way you made it better in the future. Knowing your determination, you're bound to succeed eventually.
I’ve been saying I’m not a fan of WordPress too but it’s growing on me as I learn it. I’m excited about building tools for non-programmers. WP was a “no-code” tool before it was cool.
I have dabbled a little with WP but my community has a big WP Meetup.com group. I have found like most things there are peeps that love and hate it.
But if you like that is awesome!
I was in the not loving it camp but I think my frustration was because I am a programmer and I wasn't using WordPress to its full potential. It's frustrating to try to find solutions through plugins when I know I'm capable of creating solutions through code.
Actually learning it now feels empowering.
