April 14, 2019 — Soon after the release of WordPress 15 years ago, support for internationalization was added to the software. This meant that themes, plugins, and WordPress itself could be translated. This was a huge deal as WordPress is used all over the world, in countries where English is not the main language. WordPress was quickly translated into German, Japanese and many more languages.
Over the years, WordPress has steadily improved the way we have to work with internationalization. However, challenges still exist and there will always be new ones ahead. Projects like Gutenberg and ecosystems beyond WordPress.org force us to continuously iterate.
In this talk you’ll learn how to make use of the latest and greatest technology to make your WordPress plugin or theme fully internationalized. Pascal is going to highlight how you can leverage the powers of WordPress, GlotPress, and WP-CLI to improve the translation workflow in your WordPress projects.

Everything from how Gutenberg will change your business model, what WordPress developers need to know in terms of technical skills to keep up to date, and how it will dramatically change how we think and deliver content through WordPress
April 11, 2019 — How do we move towards a block-based admin UI in a pre-Gutenberg WordPress?
With the rise of page builders and ‘block-based’ layouts, and the imminent arrival of Gutenberg – WordPress’ new block-based editor – we needed a solution for transitioning towards this new way of editing content while sticking with the mature and stable technology stack that we know and love.
We, therefore, set out to find another solution and this led to the development of the HD ACF Blocks plugin that we use on most sites today.
This talk introduces the plugin, how we built it, how it works, and how it provides value to our clients and our business.
