[wp-hackers] A new lightweight documentation resource for advanced WordPress development

Hi friends,

I'd like to invite you to make a new resource
with me, for both us and our fellow WordPress developers.

I would like this resource to be as lightweight as possible. I am not
interested at the moment in creating a new, canonical encyclopedia for
developer documentation. If we tried to, we might get excited about it,
assume some responsibility and cobble some notes together. But we would
realize the project is too ambitious. We would write some stuff, but end up
with a poor mans Codex. I'd feel sad and beaten down, and you'd feel the
time you committed to the project was a waste of time.

Therefore it will take the form of a curated collection of links, similar
to lists like these <https://github.com/dypsilon/frontend-dev-bookmarks>.
Folks have written articles, tutorials and other forms of documentation on
specific topics around the web, in detail. Folks have created plugins that
offer awesome functionality for us. Let's make a table of contents of these
resources we find absolutely useful in our ongoing effort of being
world-class WordPress developers.

Here's the list in its current state
Feel free to create open up an issue sharing resources / thoughts.

To go along with this, I'm hosting a weekly chat about said resources in
our IRC channel #wordpress, Wednesdays at 1900 - 2000 UTC
<http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?hour=19&min=00&sec=0> (3
PM Eastern).
