Session Description:

Custom Post Types, Taxonomies, and Post Meta have transformed WordPress from a semi-CMS to the most popular CMS on the web. Now it’s time for you to take control over this process and both speed up and DRY up your coding with a new plugin: SuperCPT. SuperCPT is an object wrapper for Custom Post Types, Custom Taxonomies, and Custom Post Meta “for coders, by coders.” Simply put, SuperCPT: * DRYs up the Custom Post Type and Custom Taxonomy process (e.g. automatically adds the name to all the labels), * allows you to set default options for all your Custom Post Types and Taxonomies, * significantly simplifies the process of creating, saving, and displaying Custom Post Meta, * is sexy! Your custom fields are styled to look great and SuperCPT comes with 350 awesome icons courtesy of glyphicons.com In this session, in real time, we’ll setup custom post types, taxonomies, and various post meta fields. Everything will be by your suggestion so you can see there’s no smoke or mirrors. You’ll be amazed at how days worth of work turns into minutes.
