In software and programming, you hear the term packages and modules. It’s a principle and pattern of how we group code into like functionality, features, and components. In blogging, we group like content with categories to identify a central message. It’s similar in programming, where you take the web page and break it down, grouping like items together and then building the module for each of them.
Modular programming is a software design technique that emphasizes separating the functionality of a program into independent, interchangeable modules, such that each contains everything necessary to execute only one aspect of the desired functionality. ~ per Wikipedia on Modular programming
In this episode, you will learn about modularity as we discuss the benefits you will gain. Instead of dumping everything into WordPress
functions.php, modularity increases readability, maintainability, and gives you the means to turn on and off different elements and features within your specific implementation (project).
Hands off the keyboard. Web development starts by thinking first, then planning it out, and then coding it.
