Using our coding skills to develop a plugin for WordPress

We have developed a plugin called Hello Worthy, which takes the idea of the Hello Dolly plugin, and turns it into a tips for beginners function.

This is a quote of text that is found at the top right of the dashboard, which shows helpful tips for users who are new to developing websites on WordPress.

The Hello Worthy plugin uses PHP and CSS as the coding language. The original code for Hello Dolly would display lyrics from a song as the quote on the top right of the dashboard. We have replaced these quotes with our beginner tips. A quote from the list is then randomly selected whenever the dashboard page is loaded.

This is helpful for new developers to WordPress as it can remind developers what is recommended for them to do, without needing to search for this information themselves.
