I met last week with Birgit Pauli-Haack and the host Maciej Palmowski on the brand new WP Owlcast podcast to talk about contributing to WordPress. We discussed a variety of topics, including different ways to get involved in the community, how to encourage people to give back, how COVID affected contributors, and other challenges in the WordPress ecosystem.
In the 43rd episode of the Gutenberg Changelog podcast, Birgit Pauli-Haack and I discuss the Gutenberg plugin 10.5 release. We also talk about progress on the block editor changes integration with the WordPress 5.8 release scheduled for July. In addition to that, you can learn more about the development of the Block Patterns Direction project and a new collection of patterns added to Gutenberg.
Do the Woo podcast continues to dive into some conversations with those who work on WordPress core. It is the latest addition to their regular program focused on building WooCommerce sites. Over a week ago, I met with BobWP and his co-host Mendel Kurlan to discuss my contributions to WordPress core and the block editor in particular. We caught up with what’s happening with blocks and how WooCommerce fits into the bigger picture.
In the 42nd episode of the Gutenberg Changelog podcast, Birgit Pauli-Haack and I discuss the Full-Site Editing scope for WordPress 5.8, Gutenberg’s 10.4 release, the Query Quest, and Gallery block refactor.
I’m thrilled to share that I joined Birgit Pauli-Hack to co-host the Gutenberg Changelog podcast! It’s going to be a real challenge to replace Mark Uraine, who did a remarkable job in 40 previous episodes.
In the 41st episode, Birgit and I discussed Gutenberg 10.3, updates on Full-site Editing MVP, and Block Patterns.
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.
My lighting talk from the WordCamp India online event is now available on YouTube. I presented how to make the most of the scaffolding command, which will let you save hours when building the first block. I also talked about the set of WordPress block development tools from the team behind Gutenberg that was designed to make the whole experience more streamlined.
