Gilbane’s Digital Experience Conference
Washington DC April 28 – 29, Workshops May 1
The new “Gutenberg” editor for WordPress is ambitious and controversial. Gutenberg adds layout tools in the form of blocks, which has many advantages, but can also be seem a burden. A classic problem for authoring tools is the inherent tension between layout designers and authors for control and flexibility in content creation. In general, there is no perfect balance, but Gutenberg is something to check out, and at least keep an eye on.
Speaker Andrew Roberts is uniquely qualified to explain the relationship between the WordPress classic editor and Gutenberg. Both depend on code from the TinyMCE text editor, and Tiny has worked with Automattic on Gutenberg. Join him on Monday, April 29: 3:15 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
