Decentralized Social Networking with WordPress by Alex Kirk

Typically, nowadays, social networks are centrally owned by companies who control the servers and the data you upload.
WordPress can be an alternative to this. You decide where you host, you decide who your friends are who can access your content.
This could transform your personal WordPress into your personal digital hub.
This talk shows how the Friends Plugin can be used to establish connections between WordPresses and explores how these relationships could be used.


Hello to 5.0, a first look at the next major release, by Harry Martin

The WP community is talking about Gutenberg and 5.0 over months. Now the release date 19th november is fixed, the 1st beta is out. Now it's time for all users to take a closer look - should they panic? Or will be all the changes under the hood and users can make the update as usual? And - we will probably never get Twenty Eighteen - what will Twenty Nineteen look like?
This talk is for users who are interested in seeing the tools that they will use in the near future.
