Another great thing is explaining WordPress plugin development best practices. If you don’t have a lot of experience with WordPress plugins and don’t have the time to really research how to do things you can end up writing code that can be handled by the WordPress API in such a fashion that’s future proof. Take for instance the Plugin Settings options – if you manage them through the API any future changes to the WordPress UI will be reflected in your plugin as well.
