    Marco Fernandes and Thor Andre Gretland – Gutenberg Cloud: Your blocks in the cloud (for every CMS)

    WordCamp Nordic 2019Speakers: Marco Fernandes, Thor Andre Gretland

    June 10, 2019 — In 2017 we fell in love with Gutenberg. In 2018 we decided to use it as a foundation for all things CMS: WP, Drupal or standalone apps. This resulted in Gutenberg JS: https://github.com/front/gutenberg-js. We quickly found out that the universal concept of blocks deserves a CMS agnostic library, and what if we could make it cloud based?

    Here is what we did, what we learned, and how we are using it today!

    Antonio Villegas: Gutenberg Best Practices For WordPress Developers That Had No Time to Learn JavaScript Deeply

    WordCamp Nordic 2019Speaker: Antonio Villegas

    June 10, 2019 — The new WordPress block editor (a.k.a. Gutenberg) is a radical change for developers used to working with PHP. If you needed to learn JavaScript deeply and quickly to update your plugins and keep everything working, you may still feel a bit overwhelmed. The development of blocks represents a major challenge for all of us not proficient in JavaScript. In this talk we will show you a set of good practices to follow when developing with Gutenberg, as well as typical mistakes that you should avoid so that your code doesn’t break anything.

    Roy Sivan: Build Web Applications with Gutenberg

    WordCamp Phoenix 2019Speaker: Roy Sivan

    June 10, 2019 — The new WordPress editor (Gutenberg) is how all new content is to be created on WordPress. However with the way the data is stored, is that really the best way to power an application? I will walk through the drawbacks for how Gutenberg stores data, and how to easily change that to more easily power custom headless (and not) web applications.

    Jamie Schmid: Lightning Talk – Content Strategy in a Gutenberg World

    WordCamp Phoenix 2019Speaker: Jamie Schmid

    June 10, 2019 — With the release of WordPress 5.0, users now have default control over page-level design decisions. In this talk we will discuss the thought process that went into core Gutenberg architecture decisions, different strategies to achieve “smart” control: that balance between complete content freedom, and heavyhanded control. Jamie will present some options to create flexible content strategies for your clients in this new era.

    Thomas Deneulin: Comment aborder la transition WordPress et JavaScript

    WordCamp Bordeaux 2019Speaker: Thomas Deneulin

    June 3, 2019 — Avec l’arrivée de Gutenberg, WordPress a fait le choix d’utiliser un framework JavaScript ( ReactJS ) et se dirige petit à petit vers des développements « orientés API », notamment grâce à l’API Rest. On peut donc aborder WordPress comme un CMS Headless. De fait, pour rester intégrer à WordPress et utiliser le même langage, il faut savoir aborder le JavaScript mais aussi ReactJS. Comment ?

    Paul Barthmaier: Block Filters: The Answer to Customizing Blocks Without Rolling Your Own

    WordCamp Lancaster 2019Speaker: Paul Barthmaier

    June 2, 2019 — With much fanfare React.js has overtaken the post editor, and this is just the beginning. As we enter phase two of the Gutenberg project, we find that change has begun for widgets and even menus. While the thought of building our own editor blocks from scratch may be too daunting for many of us to want to undertake, WordPress delivers React to us in a way that allows us to add our own flavor to existing blocks. React is designed with modular units for easy reuse, and in this talk we’ll review key components of blocks and different ways to enhance or redefine blocks using the set of filters available in the WordPress namespace.

    Beth Soderberg: Help! I’m Behind on Gutenberg!

    WordCamp Lancaster 2019Speaker: Beth Soderberg

    June 2, 2019 — You missed the boat on Gutenberg. Either you believed its release would never actually happen, you thought there would be time to learn about it once it was out (and didn’t), or you didn’t really pay attention to what Gutenberg was and how it would impact you and your work until it was released this past December. Now you’re worried because you feel behind professionally and you’re not sure how to fill the gaps in your Gutenberg knowledge. Most importantly, you think: are you too behind to catch up? Do you need to find a different career? A different content management system?

    The short answer is: no. Gutenberg is here to stay and, just like anything else, you can learn what you need to learn in order to continue your work with WordPress. We’ll talk about creating your own personal curriculum to “learn Gutenberg” by working through how to identify the gaps in our own knowledge and then how to identify resources to fill those gaps. In doing so, we’ll cover the basics of what Gutenberg is and how incorporating its existence into our workflows will impact different types of experts including content managers, project managers, designers, and developers.

    As a case study, we’ll look at how I (a developer) “caught up” on Gutenberg after a 2018 where I didn’t have the time to focus on the ever-changing landscape of the Gutenberg project until right around its release.

    May 15, 2019 — Gutenberg. It’s real, it’s happening, and it’s terrifying because you don’t know how you’re going to do everything you do today. What if I told you that for the majority of the simple tasks out there, no only will you still be able to do them, they’ll be even easier? Let me show you how with the magical, repeatable, Gutenberg block.
