From our podcast:

Guten Ready for Gutenberg

Duration: 1:19:43

When WordPress 5.0 is released later this year, the “classic” Visual editor that we’ve known for over a decade will be replaced by a new editing experience, called Gutenberg. The new editor will mean lots of changes for how we think about and interact with WordPress—as content creators and as developers.

This episode features WPCampus community members Jen McFarland and Brian DeConinck, members of NC State University’s OIT Design & Web Services team. They just wrapped up GutenDay, an all-day workshop for campus web developers where we shared everything we know so far.

You can also read the companion blog post about NC State’s GutenDay on the WPCampus blog.

Brian DeConinck

I build custom themes and plugins for NC State University's Office of Information Technology, and I help maintain campus WordPress environments and advise clients on content best practices. I'm always excited to talk about universal design, accessibility, usability, and designing with compassion and empathy. I host the WPCampus Podcast, where I get to talk about all those things and more!
