Block development can be challenging, but getting started with block development has never been easier. In the past few years, WordPress contributors have created tools to simplify the process and make building blocks more accessible to those without advanced knowledge of JavaScript and React. Coupled with core components, native block supports, and a bit of guidance, every WordPress builder can add custom blocks to their toolset.

This online workshop is a follow-up to my WordCamp US presentation “Let’s Build a Custom Block in 15 Minutes”. We will walk through the process of building a custom block using the Create Block tool in more detail and add a few additional features. For our block example, we will be “blockifying” the original Hello Dolly plugin by Matt Mullenweg.
