Building Gutenberg-ready WordPress themes

Live on YouTube – Tuesday 12th January 2021 | 1 pm (GMT)

Mark and Keith will be joined by expert WordPress developer Bill Erickson to discuss how to work with Gutenberg when building custom, modern WordPress themes.

This is a follow-up to our very first episode on developing Gutenberg themes.

We’ll be asking Bill:

  • Which default blocks does he use?
  • Does he use 3rd-party blocks?
  • How does he create his own blocks?
  • Does he style all blocks from scratch?
  • How does block-based development affect his design workflow?
  • How does he use block patterns, styles, variations, etc?

Got a question for Bill? Get in touch on Twitter.
