Clark Wimberly, a WordPress developer living in Austin, has released an e-book called Meta Valuables.The book focused on meta data, or the extra information that WordPress allows you to attach to posts, pages, and users. The book includes samples and real-world examples of meta data in practice.
At 45 pages, the e-book — in DRM-free PDF form — is a bargain at $2 (or more, if you wish). Wimberly explains on his blog that the book is best for the learning WordPress developer:
These lessons are meant for the learning WordPress developer, someone familiar with editing template files, basic PHP functions, the template hierarchy, etc. You’ll need a test or local install to follow along in code, but don’t let that scare you. Getting dirty with your WordPress templates is something every developer should look forward to.
Wimberly began the book as a supporting text for his class in Austin, Texas on the same topic, and then expanded it into a book all on its own. Wimberly’s wife is a designer, and worked on the layouts of the publication.
