We explored how to customize format controls like bold or italics and extend the block toolbar with your control allowing to change the color of the selected text.
WordPress has always been recognized as a very welcoming platform for developers at any level of expertise. The block editor introduced in WordPress 5.0 release is not only an entirely new editing experience for users, but it also redefines the way plugins and themes are developed.
In September of this year, I experienced my first exposure to the art of public speaking. I gave a talk at ReactJS Wrocław #7 meetup. I already published my presentation on my blog and you can find it here. I’m glad that I decided to share my lessons learned while working on the Calypso project. I’m satisfied with the topic I picked, but I’m afraid I could do a way better job explaining code examples I presented. It looks like I’m going to have plenty of opportunities to work on projects based on React in the upcoming year. I’m looking forward to it and I hope to find another excuse to speak to the audience again.
