  • Justin Kopepasah: Gutenberg and the Evolution of WordPress

    WordCamp Tokyo 2018Speaker: Justin Kopepasah

    October 4, 2018 — Gutenberg, the elephant in the room. The impending feature to be merged into Core which will not only change the way millions of people work with WordPress, but has the audacious goal of shaping the way people publish and manage content on the web.

    Some people may say that Gutenberg is merely WordPress catching up to other services, but in reality the new editor experience not only changes the way writers write, but also the way engineers create rich, editorial experiences specifically tailored to each unique site requirements.

    WordPress 5.0+ goals are not to “catch up”, but rather leapfrog other experiences and shape content creation and the editorial experience forever.
