We’re at an interesting point in the evolution of WordPress. Huge advances have been made in the way that we build themes and plugins. Leaps and bounds have been made in performance, security, and the marketplace as a whole. But up until recently, the way that we actually create, organize, and present content has been pretty stagnant. WYSIWYG and Meta Boxes for creating content. Taxonomies, P2P, and hard-coded templates for organizing and displaying content. There’s a ton that you can do with that tool-set. But we want to do more. We want front end editing, page builders, and modular content. We want rich landing pages, and interesting layouts. We want flexibility. We want to empower authors and editors. We want to lower the bar to awesome. It’s a design challenge. It’s a theme challenge. It’s a dev challenge.This talk looks at what’s out there today and what’s coming down the pipe. Hopefully this is interesting for people who create content, build themes, and work with clients.
