June 18, 2020 — The block editor in WordPress (aka Gutenberg) offers a structured way of creating content through customizable “blocks”. But building custom blocks isn’t the only way to extend the editor; you can also register sidebars, enable custom toolbar buttons, and much more. In this talk, you’ll learn how to use these extension points to transform the block editor… without building a single block.
June 5, 2020 — With the introduction of the block editor, the WordPress ecosystem and editing experience has shifted, particularly for teams who were deeply familiar with the Classic Editor and had workflows and tooling designed around that. With editorial under pressure to continue producing content, it can be tough to put together a plan to move your site, especially if it’s a large site, over to the new editor.
In this talk, we explored the migration path to Gutenberg at a high level and some strategies for making the transition as seamless as possible. We also drilled down and got tactical, with tasks that development and editorial can work on together. These included an audit of existing components and workflow and making a plan for how these might be implemented in the new editor.
By the end, everyone had some strategies for helping their team transition to the new editor and take advantage of all Gutenberg has to offer.
