WordSesh APAC 2020

It’s been a while since I gave a talk at the WordSesh APAC online conference in March 2020. Initially, I had nearly the same presentation prepared to deliver on the stage at the first-ever WordCamp Asia event a few weeks earlier. Unfortunately, the conference got canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic concerns, and I didn’t have a chance to visit Bangkok, Thailand.

I presented how the JavaScript ecosystem has flourished in recent years, creating a wide range of opportunities for contributors working on the Gutenberg project. I also explained many of the architectural decisions made to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible for those familiar with developing WordPress products and services.
