Looking to learn more about WordPress REST APIs? Too bad you missed the Monday, April 25, 2016 WordPress meetup in Des Moine. You could have gained in-depth knowledge about RESTful api! But don’t worry, I was there to take video of the presentations and post them below. Learn how the REST api works and how you can use it with your websites! This meeting was designed mostly experts, but had a brief crash course for beginners. Our guest speakers were Jordan, Art and Andy. See more of them below.
