With the introduction of Gutenberg in WordPress 5.0, the themes and plugins of the future will revolve around this notion of ‘blocks’. But what is a block? Maybe you’ve heard you can create your own blocks…but where and how does one actually do that? Are blocks written in PHP? Are they JavaScript? Both? Do you need to know React to create a block?

In this workshop, we will take a deep-dive into the anatomy of a block, answering the aforementioned questions and more. After a high-level discussion of blocks and how they function, we will get hands-on, creating blocks of our own within a set of demo files that can function as a starting point for your own projects.
