Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Thank you, part of WordPress: REST API.
- [Morten] That concludes WordPress REST API foundations. Based on what you've seen, you should now have a solid foundational understanding of what the WordPress REST API is, how it works, and what you can do with it. From here, you'll be able to start exploring the API on your own and come up with new and exciting web solutions and standalone applications. This course is the first of series focusing on the WordPress REST API. So once you're ready to dive deeper into this exciting new technology, we've got you covered. As we start working with the WordPress REST API, I want you to actively think outside the WordPress box and find technologies and solutions that are new and interesting.
I love hearing from you about how you're using what you've learned in my courses. The easiest way to get a hold of me is on Twitter @mor10, 'cause that's my name, where I talk about WordPress and web design, and philosophy and other things. You can also read my long form articles about the web and how it shapes us at LinkedIn Pulse, and on the LinkedIn Learning blog. Reach out, ask questions, send me links to the stuff you build, and I'll be sure to check it out. Now all that's left for me to say is look it in, build new and interesting solutions, and experiences with the WordPress REST API, and I'll see you in the next course.
