Gutenberg is great for bloggers who want better publishing tools, but what about developers who need to craft customized CMS experiences for their clients? If you use a lot of custom fields and are horrified at the idea of giving clients any design control, this session is for you. We’ll talk about:

when to use Gutenberg, and when not to;
what should be a block, and what should stay a custom field;
how to limit a client’s color and text options;
the magic of block templates and block locking;
and how your theme development will change.
Now is the chance to create new site building best practices and drive the evolution of block editing. Let’s get excited for what’s possible!
