In this talk Kimb will be showing progress of Gutenberg, the new content editing experience for WordPress. He’ll be doing a little history around the how’s and why’s, looking at the impact of this change for new and existing WordPress sites, and, most importantly, how you can get ready for the arrival of Gutenberg which is currently targeted for early June 2017
I’m doing something pretty fun this year for WordCamp London. A one-day-wonder trip that looks like this:
Saturday 18th March 2017
- Barnsley to Sheffield: 05:51
- Sheffield to London: 06:29
- Arrive in London: 08:31
- Tube to Highbury & Islington: 08:41
Then it’s quickly meeting the team before the conference starts at: 9:15.
I’ll be leaving not long into the after-party, should JUST be around in enough time to get a few drinks and say hello to a few people!
- London to Sheffield: 19:58
- Sheffield to Barnsley: 22:41
- Arrive in Barnsley: 23:07
Total round trip around 19 hours. Should be a blast!
We’re also sponsoring
You should also check out a post I put over at Make Do about how we’re sponsoring this year and my speaker/session selections.
This months WordPress Sheffield meetup was aimed at people who want to learn how to develop using WordPress.
The concept was to share my experience around the state of the complex WordPress development ecosystem in a talk that was aimed at students and people just getting started in web/WordPress development.
Get the slides!
You can download my slides in PDF format here – note that these are in a raw state and a few changes were requested during the session that I’d love to add. Plan is to update the talk for a new batch of students and do a new version in the next three months.
General feedback was good, although sadly not many students attended the session meaning we missed the target audience (damn lazy students obviously have something better to do on a Tuesday night!).
If anything I’m treating this as a ‘version one’ of something I’d like to evolve into something that has more meat-on-the-bones.
Ideas welcome, just leave a comment or drop me a tweet.
Interested in having me speak at your event?
If you’d like to see this talk (or a variation) at your meetup/event then just get in touch and I’ll see what I can do.
A session aimed at all WordPress skill levels
This month at WordPress Sheffield we’re looking at the best way to teach yourself WordPress development with an open session that invites WordPress users and developers of all skill levels.
The session will start with a presentation detailing the many (and there are many) different topics that are involved in becoming a WordPress Developer and advice on how to best choose your battles and pick the right path.
This is a free session and I really hope to see experienced developers come along to join in and share their experiences.
