November 10, 2019 — Die Art und Weise, wie WordPress Themes funktionieren, könnte sich in den nächsten Jahren verändern. Dieser Talk zeigt, welche neuen Möglichkeiten WordPress mit dem Gutenberg Projekt plant und bereits bietet. Darüber hinaus wird darauf eingegangen, welche Einflüsse Frameworks (AMP, Gatsby, Frontity), Schnittstellen (Graph QL) und neue Web-Standards haben können.
October 21, 2019 — At the end of 2018, we launched a custom eLearning platform that is built on the WordPress backend and experienced through our ReactJS frontend. In this talk, I would like to discuss why we chose the hybrid approach and how it’s a viable option for designers/developers looking to modernise their WordPress sites incrementally. I will share the technical challenges we faced throughout the project, including how we overcame them, and what we intend to do next with our web app.
After this talk, attendees should feel more comfortable opening up any JS file they come across in the WordPress world and knowing a bit more about how to work with the various frameworks and patterns in use.
March 18, 2019 — WordPress 5.0 introduces a new block editor called “Gutenberg” and if you’re a WordPress developer, you need to know how to build blocks. This talk is for developers who have already created basic blocks and are ready to build more complex blocks and to migrate legacy shortcodes as well as meta boxes to blocks.
August 10, 2018 — Ask your questions to the group of people building Gutenberg. Learn its design language, how to create blocks and extend the new editor interface in various ways.
Make sure you come prepared! Come early to make sure you’re ready to go.
For this workshop you will want to have the following:
