A department within a state government recently launched a new site on WordPress, using Gutenberg as the primary editor.
This talk will showcase some of ways Gutenberg was used to provide a custom editing experience that would have been much more difficult without Gutenberg. We’ll also look at how using GraphQL, via the WPGraphQL plugin, with Gutenberg led to performance and developer experience enhancements while delivering custom blocks.
After this talk, developers and users of WordPress should feel excited about the possibilities of Gutenberg, but also have realistic caution about jumping all-in with the new editor and be aware of some real pain points, but also some proposed solutions and workarounds to said pain points.
