- Let's Build a Site with Gutenberg! Live
We plan to hook up the laptop to the projector and build a site with the new toolset available in the editor. Anyone have a favorite cause or charity that needs a site rebuild? Come watch as we probably use way too many different blocks and demonstrate the power of Gutenberg. (And, yes, there may be some expletives when it doesn't work like we planned.)

- The 6 Principles of WordPress Productivity Management
From the presenter -- Beth Livingston: Because of all the comments I've been hearing from WP practitioners at WordCamps, about the "business" of WordPress - how to prevent scope creep, how to keep projects on time and under budget, I am creating an online course on WordPress Project Management. This is one piece of that... the underlying fabric, if you will. I took the 6 productivity principles I was "raised" on in corporate IT and modified them for WordPress.
- Gutenberg is here. Fireworks or Fear.
