Are you interested in creating a WordPress plugin?
This article is all about how I learned to build my first plugin. My hope is that it will inspire you to create your own and provide the necessary resources to learn how.
So, why did I decide to create a publicly available plugin?
There were a number of reasons: I wanted to improve my skills as a developer, give back to the WordPress community, and challenge myself.
But the primary event that kicked off this whole endeavor was when a client came to me asking, “Is there a plugin that will let me sort my WooCommerce products on the backend by the amount in stock?” I did some searching, and when I couldn’t find a plugin that did this, I decided to build it.
