Once you’ve got an idea, it’s time to get started. One of the most important steps in professional WordPress development is to lay a solid foundation.
01. IDENTIFYING THE ENVIRONMENT
Although WordPress is under active development, not everyone runs the latest version of the platform. Some are several versions behind, some are one version behind, some are up to date, and some will have installed the next version before your product is even released. Nail down your product’s requirements from the beginning because it will dictate all of your work, from development to release.
With your requirements defined, you should have a clear picture of the environment needed to support your work. At this point, it’s time to set up the development environment.
The biggest difference between the development and staging environments is that the latter is meant for mistakes. If you destroy the database by accident, no problem. Staging, on the other hand, acts as a simulator for the production environment.
When building software, regardless of the platform, you need to have the proper testing in place. After all, you want your work to be used by a lot of people, right? So, you’ll need a testing infrastructure to catch any bugs prior to release.
WordPress core offers a number of key features, but many sites require additional functionality.
That’s where themes and plugins come in, as these tools make it possible to customize your site’s design and functionality with ease.
There are thousands of options out there that are simple to find, and many are completely free (or surprisingly affordable).
