Iteration is exciting and Jason and Bridget are definitely stoked about the new way you’ll interact with WordPress with Gutenberg. Let’s chat about marketing to clients and the WordPress Community, managing change and budgets.
Gutenberg Tour by Bridget Willard
Tour of Gutenberg – Women Who WP – January 17, 2018
What is Gutenberg?
“ Gutenberg is more than an editor. While the editor is the focus right now, the project will ultimately impact the entire publishing experience including customization (the next focus area).”
Discover more about the project.
How can I send feedback or get help with a bug?
A way to disable Gutenberg editor in code? #4409?
How can I contribute?
gutenberg/CONTRIBUTING.md at master
wordpress.org ^ the theme in use.
A minimum Gutenberg Theme – Theme Directory
When will it be out?
Slated to be part of core in WordPress 5.0 (Currently available as a plugin in the repo)
Bridget’s Marketing Plan
Freeze Development, build an RC and give everyone a solid 2 months to update content. Make things compatible.
All lynda.com, WP Beginner and all that old 4.9 and before WP content will now be outdated.
Give the community 2-3 months to catch up before releasing it.
Cool pick of the week
