Gutenberg and the future of WordPress | Gutenberg et le futur de WordPress

This Monday I gave a talk on Gutenberg and the future of WordPress for the Montreal WordPress Community.

Slides are here:

The talk included a demo of testgutenberg.com with a contest and prizes. But also an introduction to how Gutenberg is built with “just enough React js” to get started building custom blocks and templates, converting metaboxes, etc. There was also a “How you can contribute right now! (even if you don’t code)” component, a mini promo for the New Contributors Chat Wednesdays at 4 EDT in the #core Slack channel on make.wordpress.org

There were tons of questions and people were really interested in the topic.

Many thanks to my team members for their assistance and for the Montreal WordPress Community for inviting me to speak.

Also, we're hiring!

And yes, this post was made with Gutenberg 🙂 

V.2 Oooh, Shiny! All the New CSS Toys for WordPress Theme Development

This weekend I gave an updated version of my talk on new CSS modules at WordCamp Montréal 2017. This talk is similar to the previous version, but with updated statistics, and Canada-specific statistics added.

Below is my talk description.

Check out all newest things that CSS can bring to WordPress theme development: CSS Filters, Feature Queries, Native Mixins, Grid Layout, Native Variables, and more. The W3C’s CSS Working Group is introducing a ton of new CSS modules in 2017. Learn how they work and when to use them. We’ll look at real examples that you can start using right now.

The talk is meant as a sampler of some new techniques that make CSS fun again. But I’d encourage you to follow the links in the slides to find tutorials and examples so that you can learn how to use these modules in more depth.

A couple of people asked questions after the talk, or requested more information.

I’d love some feedback, so please feel free to leave a comment!

Oooh, Shiny! All the new CSS toys for WordPress Theme Development

This weekend I was lucky enough to give a talk at WordCamp Ottawa 2017. It was a lot of fun, and I thought I’d share my slides with everyone who couldn’t be there. Below is my talk description.

Check out all newest things that CSS can bring to WordPress theme development: CSS Filters, Feature Queries, Native Mixins, Grid Layout, Native Variables, and more. The W3C’s CSS Working Group is introducing a ton of new CSS modules in 2017. Learn how they work and when to use them. We’ll look at real examples that you can start using right now.

CSS has seemed quite stable for some time, so I was excited to see all the new CSS modules that have just come out. They’ve made CSS fun again. There is just so much to play with.

With so much material, it was hard to choose what to present. I feel like grid could have been a full-day workshop on its own! But for this talk, I only had 30 minutes, plus time for questions. So I chose a small sampler of new CSS that you can start using quickly.

My talk is intended for people who already have a basic grasp of CSS. But, to keep the talk as accessible as possible, I’ve included links on many of my slides where you can find much more detailed information, including tutorials, demos, and online tools.
