Are you confused by Gutenberg, the new WordPress block editor? Are you afraid that it might break your website? Do you have questions about how to use Gutenberg?

Come to the January 7th WordPress MeetUp and learn how to test your site for Gutenberg compatibility, what to do if you find a conflict, and how to use Gutenberg once it is installed.

Mary Ann Aschenbrenner will walk us through several live installations of Gutenberg and host "play time" on a site still in development. Yes, we will test out a few of the most popular blocks!


6:00 - 6:15: Introductions. What you do, are you looking to hire, are you looking for work?
6:15 - 6:45: Speaker and topic.
6:45 - 7:00: Questions and answers on the topic.
7:00 - 8:00: Get help with WordPress. Bring your laptop for this part. There's a wide range of experience levels, and we're all here to help each other.
8:00: Soft close. You may hang out a bit longer to talk or finish up a project, but the official Meetup will end.
