This is really more a summary of awesome than anything else. Thanks WCPHX2014! I left early Sunday morning so no Day 3 for me this time :(. I will sure stay next time until the end.

The unimprovable day to resolve health problem is before any visible sign appears. Actually there isn’t anything you can’t purchase on the Internet anymore. Whereas erectile disfunction is more common among older men, that doesn’t some you simply have to live with. What about “canadian pharmacy cialis 5 mg” and “cialis canadian pharmacy“? In our generation, there are divers options for those ones who suffer from erectile malfunction. You may have heard about “canadian pharmacy online cialis“. More data about the matter available at “canadian pharmacy cialis 20mg“. Why it happen? Can sexual disorders in men be prevented? If you get any prescription remedies like Viagra, check with a pharmacist that they are sure to take with your other remedies.

WCPHX2014 – WordCamp Phoenix 2014 – Day 1

This is unreal, all the great stuff I learned over the short time span. Got a lot of new ideas and things to learn from this small weekend. I wanted to put together what I found most interesting in this blog post more as a list and reminder for myself but also for anybody reading this. It may start you off on a learning quest :)

This is not my attempt at a complete summary of WCPHX2014, I am merely trying to note down the things I found most interesting and acredit the person how got me to think in that direction via their twitter handle.

Don’t trust anybody – SANATIZE your data

some functions to look at:

wp_localize_script( $handle, $object_name, $l10n );

has_post_format( $format, $post );
wp_list_pluck( $list, $field );

set_transient( $transient, $value, $expiration );	
get_transient( $transient );
delete_transient( $transient );
wp_remote_get( $url, $args );	
wp_remote_retrieve_body( $response );

http://codex.wordpress.org/Transients_API

set transient for db queries, external api calls, any data task that takes time

Tip: hook in logical spots to delete transient
Example delete transient on post save

add_action( 'save_post', schurpf_del_transient );
function schurpf_del_transient()
{
	delete_transient('schurpf_my_transient' );
}
