Webinar: GutenTag – Thinking Outside of the Block

We held a webinar all about the new way of editing content in WordPress called Gutenberg.

On Monday 5th March 2018 Highrise Digital contributed to a community event called “Guten Tag“. The event was to try and raise awareness of the new WordPress Gutenberg project coming in the next major version of WordPress. The event comprised a day of sessions (4 in total) looking at different aspects of the project and allowing people to get involved by asking questions and promoting discussion.

At Highrise Digital we pride ourselves on our knowledge of the WordPress platform and we are always striving to keep up-to-date with all the latest developments and events such as these are ideal for doing this.

Mark chaired a session titled “Fireside chat with the Gutenberg team” which was a unique opportunity to have the team of developers building Gutenberg answer questions about the project. The chat started with some common questions posed by the UK WordPress community on the UK WP Slack group. We then opened the floor to questions from the hundreds of people watching the live streamed events via Crowdcast.

Mark’s session was streamed live on Facebook and the session can be viewed below:
