- [Jeff] In this video course, we've seen how to develop WordPress plugins using the WordPress API. Plugins extend WordPress to do almost anything we can imagine, and WordPress provides some powerful APIs to help make it a reality. Of course, understanding code and building plugins are just part of the craft. It's also important to share and use your plugins, gather feedback, and continue development. As you continue building plugins and improving your skills, you'll discover many tools to help you with various tasks, like security testing, usability testing, performance testing, debugging, and much more.
