Gutenberg Block Editor Explained
Networking: first 30 minutes with introductions Presentation: ~1 hour WordPress challenges and solutions discussion by all: 30 minutes Presentation details: With WordPress 5 release, there's been a monumental change to the way we create content in WordPress. Gone is the familiar editor, replaced by a new block-based editor dubbed "Gutenberg." There's been plenty of wailing and gnashing of teeth, but that's how it is with change. We'll take a look at how Gutenberg works, what it means for your workflow, and how to make good use of the new tools. If you haven't updated WordPress because you're afraid the new editor will break your site, we'll try to put your mind at ease. About the presenter: Meetup organizer, Dave Kuhar will cover this topic. With 11 years of WordPress under his belt he's seen plenty of change come to the platform; even so, Gutenberg freaked him out when it was first announced, but he's finding it more comfortable all the time. NOTE: THIS IS OUR LAST MONDAY-NIGHT MEETING. We're moving to first Tuesday of the month as of February 5th.
