Continue the discussion


May 8, 2019

On the 19th of march, part of the WooCommerce team came to Barcelona to debate about WooCommerce but first we had the special meetup about and Gutenberg by Rohit Motwani.

Gutenberg is the project name of the brand new editor for the WordPress platform that was released as part of WordPress 5.0. It has the potential to radically change the way we create posts, pages, products, and basically everything else on your site. It opens the door to unifying the different parts of the website building process, making it easier for website creators.

For plugin authors, this change can be a challenge. Do I have to update my plugin? How do I know? If so, how do I adapt? The WooCommerce Support team is coming to Barcelona to answer all of these questions. We are looking forward to meeting you!
