ACF is still awesome and can help keep custom site building overhead low
August 7, 2019 — Gutenberg is more than just the new block editing experience in WordPress. With it came an array of tools that will enrich your interfaces and make your life as a front-end developer simpler. Learn how to make use of what’s newly “in the box” to think outside the block.

August 6, 2019 — Web accessibility can be tricky, especially as the main focus of many WordPress developers right now is to get into learning Gutenberg and React.
The heated discourse around the new WordPress editor during its release has been heavily concentrated on accessibility, underlining how important it is not to regress, even when new technologies are settling in.
Make your blocks more accessible and learn how to use correct semantic markup, use ARIA tags to tame it and get a crash course in accessibility as a term that encompasses best practices, inclusivity, regulation and SEO.
August 5, 2019 — Nach der Veröffentlichung von WordPress 5.0 am 6. Dezember 2018 scheint weiterhin große Unsicherheit zu herrschen. Ist ein Update sinnvoll, gerade wegen des neuen Block-Editors mit dem Codenamen “Gutenberg”?
Ich habe mit der Gutenberg Fibel bereits einiges an Erfahrung gesammelt und möchte in diesem Talk zeigen, was der neue Editor eigentlich alles kann und wie man am besten das Upgrade vorbereitet.
July 26, 2019 — From the brains of @themattyg comes a panel discussion on the use of page builders now that Gutenberg is in core. Joining us will be @MichelleAmes and guests yet to be announced!
Questions that could be touched on:
What does Gutenberg solve that Page Builders don’t? Vice Versa?Should page builders continue to be their own interface or adapt and integrate into Gutenberg as a collection of blocks?Why would a user want to use both a page builder and Gutenberg on the same site? Would they want to?Should developers focus on developing for page builders, Gutenberg or neither?How are you using Gutenberg today? How are you using page builders today?How do we change our approach to building sites for clients, when they have this new level of control?When starting a new WordPress site, what considerations would you take when choosing between a page builder, Gutenberg or the classic editor? Which one would you choose?If you already use a page builder on your site, would you consider switching to Gutenberg?
July 26, 2019 — This technical session is for developers as well as users with at least a little coding experience. After a brief introduction to what Gutenberg is and what it can do, the presentation will show simple bits of code and demonstrate how these bits of code translate into a Gutenberg block.
Building a Gutenberg block is very simpleGutenberg blocks make the editing experience a lot richer
July 26, 2019 — In our last episode, dear campers, we learned about Custom Post Types (CPT’s) and Advanced Custom Fields (ACF’s) and why we need them. We had everything clear, right? Enter Gutenberg…
Until Gutenberg, we had to copy over content from one old post to the new. The other option is to use CPT’s and ACF’s. What’s the difference? When should you use one or the other… or BOTH?
In this session, we’ll take a quick review of CPT’s and ACF’s, then compare them to Gutenberg Blocks and Templates, and discuss when you should use each and why.
