One of the biggest criticisms aimed at WordPress and many of the developers within our ecosystem is the overuse of procedural coding and lack of proper object-oriented coding principles.
It’s a topic that’s been discussed over and over, including an episode on the Mastermind.fm show. In fact, Carl Alexander, one of the major OOP evangelists in the WP world, was on that show. The great news is that he has just released a course about object-oriented programming in WordPress.
In this post, I’ll show you some of my favorite third-party extension developers. While there are many sellers of WooCommerce extensions, it is very important to get your WooCommerce plugins from reputable companies who develop with good coding practices and provide quality support and updates. You don’t want your online store (that’s hopefully making you good money) to rely on copycat plugins or shoddily built ones.
