For the last couple of years, members of the docs team have been working on developer handbooks that largely serve to curate useful information from the Codex and supplement with new, accurate, vetted information simultaneously.

In 2014, v1.0 of the Plugin Developer Handbook was published on the new Developer Hub. In 2016, a beta form of the REST API Handbook was released. Work continues on finishing v1.0 of the Theme Developer Handbook.
