Session description

WordPress is an awesome content management system, this is known. But sharing content between sites — such as those for different colleges or programs at the same university — hasn't always been easy.

In this talk, you will learn practical ways to share content between various WordPress sites -- in the same multi-site installation or totally different sites — using the WordPress REST API. You will also learn how to share content with non-WordPress sites.
