Gutenberg Development Interest Form

Our Gutenberg Developer Workshop will be taking place on Friday, March 2, 2018. This is an all-day event, running from 10am to 4pm with a break for lunch.

Workshop Description

In WordPress version 5.0 (anticipated April 2018), “Gutenberg” will be officially released. Gutenberg is the next-generation WordPress post and page editor, replacing the Visual Editor that has been the default editor of WordPress for the last 12 years.

Gutenberg marks a big step in WordPress’ transition toward JavaScript and “block”-based content. Developing for Gutenberg will look a little different than the PHP-based shortcodes and metaboxes we’re used to.

In this all-day “developers retreat” workshop, we’ll walk you through creating your first custom Guten-block, block templates in custom post types, and how you can use custom blocks to create advanced, campus-branded content. Everyone will leave with hands-on experience writing custom blocks.

Prerequisites: Experience creating WordPress themes or plugins, or otherwise knowledge of PHP and/or JavaScript.

Interest Form

    Gutenberg is React-y, and if you're familiar with React already you're going to be in a good place.
  • No promises, but if there's a consensus across the campus WordPress developer community we'll see what we can do.
  • What's on your mind? What should we know about? What long-standing grievance needs airing?
