June 3, 2018 — La revolución “industrial” ha llegado, el mundo de los builders ya estaba en plena ebullición, pero con la entrada de algunos nuevos, como Elementor o incluso el propio Guttemberg, la temperatura parece que ha subido al máximo. La intención de esta charla es por un lado hacer un breve repaso y pequeña comparativa de los builders más destacados y sus características y por otro enseñaros el que me tiene enamorado: Beaver Builder.
Beaver builder es un auténtico todo terreno, en el que (desde mi humilde entender) dos mundos tan antagónicos y tradicionalmente “enfrentados” como son el de desarrolladores o frontenders y builders, pueden por fin, darse la mano. Y que mejor forma de enseñar la potencia y calidad de código que podemos conseguir que con una demo real al mas puro estilo: Drag, Drop, Done 😉

In last 5 months, David started producing video content for WordPress users (mainly for Beaver Builder users) on his Youtube channel.
WordPress (and open source in general) has been important in democratizing the web. Now with the likes of Wix, Weebly, and SquareSpace we probably need to turn our attention more towards User Experience.
