Composer has been around for a little while now and it has made the lives of thousands of PHP developers around the world just a little better (OK, quite a lot better).
Using Composer in your theme and/or plugin will allow you to add a range of great features and libraries that are available to the general PHP community without having to worry about actually managing those libraries (Composer does that for you).
In this workshop, we will look at:
- how Composer works from a very high level;
- start a very simple plugin and including composer in it;
- and use some of the really cool packages out there to make our plugin awesome.
