  • 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.

  • Aki Björklund: The Evolution of WordPress Software Development

    WordCamp Europe 2015Speaker: Aki Björklund

    July 12, 2015 — When you start to use WordPress as an application platform, one thing is very soon clear: WordPress defines very little base structure for your application code, where to put and how to write tests, how application is loaded, or for example how dependencies should be managed. Because of this, applications or just complex sites built on top of WordPress tend to get really messy.

    There are application frameworks built on top of WordPress, but none of them seem to have wide enough use for to build any serious applications on top of. Until any of those gets wide-spread adoption, combining existing, non-WordPress specific PHP technologies as a custom solution probably is a more future-proof solution. We will be looking into one possible stack of technologies.
