It’s interesting times we’re living in.
Because these people may not have worked with WordPress before, they will be the ones that come up with the new and innovative ways which it can be used to create new apps and new kinds of websites using the platform.
Most digital agencies currently have a set up with both front end developers and back end. In WordPress agencies like ours, it’s often the back end developers who are the people that are working in the world of bespoke WordPress sites. Because the REST API means that the back end developers are going to have to be working with front end languages, there is more scope for front end devs to be creating new interfaces and applications that use WordPress data. Anything could happen!
