If you are in the WooCommerce Slack channel you might have heard discussions around the developer resources, or more to the point, where did they go? Well, the question was first addressed when Allen Smith came on as the new Developer Advocate. And today starts the rollout of the new resources portal.
WooCommerce Developer Resources
As you can see from the screenshot, this resource page is much better curated to help developers find exactly what they need. Of course there are shortcuts to give you even tighter accessibility to the resources.
But this is only the beginning. As Allen Smith stated in the post, they have big goals for the future of this resource.
We’re not stopping there though. Our goal is for this portal to serve as a gateway to all the information and resources a person needs to be productive developing with our platform, whether they’re a WooCommerce veteran or completely new to the WordPress and WooCommerce ecosystem.
As we continue to iterate, we’ll switch our focus from discoverability to education and enablement. We’re putting effort into into creating authoritative guides that developers can use for building extensions and themes, integrating external applications with WooCommerce, and even simply understanding the technical concepts of how everything in Woo works.
And to take it a step further, as new content is added to the portal, their plans are to share it on the Developer Blog as to keep everyone up to date on new additions.
You can see the full post here and they encourage feedback. This is an important tool for Woo builders and make sure you help them along the way.
