Very excited I was when Ana Silva and Jenny Wong reached out to me about a UK WP Community led event series called Guten Tag. They, along with some Core developers, Plugin developers, designers, managers, agencies and others to discuss the finer points of the roll out of Gutenberg and what it meant to everyone involved.
The first day of free online sessions took place this Monday, March 5th.
#1 An exploration of the mental and technical transition for developers to embrace Gutenberg
With: Gary Pendergast, Jenny Wong, Matt Haines-Young & Omar Reiss
A discussion based on the experience of developers who are already working with Gutenberg.
The roundtable will focus on exploring the barriers preventing people from adopting Gutenberg in their projects, and reviewing the mental and technical transitions that need to occur for developers to embrace the project in their professional environments.
#2 Fireside chat with Gutenberg team members
With: Mark Wilkinson, Matías Ventura, Miguel Fonseca & Tammie Lister
A session exploring the reasons behind the Gutenberg feature plugins’ existence and the problems it aims to solve.
We’ll be asking the Gutenberg core team what common concerns they hear from the community, and how far Gutenberg is from being merge proposal ready.
#3 : An exploration of the future of Page Builders with Gutenberg
With: David Lockie & Robby McCullough
A session exploring the relationship between the WordPress page builder market and the Gutenberg Project. We’ll be asking Page builders how they see Gutenberg affecting their business, users, and what steps they are taking towards the future.
#4 : Practical How-To: Staying up-to-date with Gutenberg
With: Zac Gordon
We are inviting various people across the community to share practical solutions to getting to grips with the new Gutenberg editor.
In this session, Zac Gordon is going to share how he stays on top of the noise and shifts through all the chatter to find the latest Gutenberg information.
