Going Beyond The Loop

One of the most common tasks in WordPress theme development is to manipulate and/or display a certain set of posts outside of the main post listing. WP_Query is how you accomplish that, but it can seem like a very complex beast to tackle. This session would explain what WP_Query is and what it does, when to use it, and what to do when WP_Query isn't appropriate.

This session is for: beginner developers with some WordPress coding experience who want to level up

(I could also do this talk as a longer workshop, if there's interest)
