The introduction of Gutenberg created a great disturbance in the Force in 2018. Rather than leading WordPress to the Dark Side, however, the block editor gives WordPress developers in 2020 the opportunity to be heroes to our clients in new ways. And thanks to some great tools, you don’t have to learn JavaScript if you don’t want to.

Whether you’re thinking of building a new site with the block editor or converting an existing site to blocks, you’ll learn something you can apply:

• How to build an attractive site with only core blocks: 2018 and 2020
• How to add Gutenberg support to an existing theme.
• Which block collections have the best block for ________
• How ACF (Advanced Custom Fields) blocks give PHP developers superpowers
• Two ways to save time and labor with reusable blocks
• How to decide when to create a custom post type and when to create a block
• How to build block templates for custom post types and why they rock
• Keeping your clients on brand with the Gutenberg color palette
• Helpful plugins for modifying, exporting, restricting, and locating blocks
• What clients love about the block editor—and what they don’t
Code examples and other resources will be available so you can review details and get a head start on your own projects.

Sallie Goetsch, WP Fangirl

Sallie Goetsch (rhymes with ‘sketch’) has been online since 1985. She hand-coded her first HTML website in 1994. She discovered WordPress in 2005 and has stuck with it through every version since.
Sallie has been organizer of the East Bay WordPress Meetup in Oakland, California, since 2009. Involvement in the community inspired her to start a WordPress consulting business, WP Fangirl. Her developer superpower is also her kryptonite: patience.

Sallie has taught WordPress classes for Mediabistro, acted as Technical Reviewer for O’Reilly’s WordPress: The Missing Manual, and produced training videos for Peachpit Press. She is a regular panelist on the WP-Tonic Roundtable podcast and a frequent speaker at WordCamp Sacramento. She lives in Oakley, California, with her husband and two cats.

Experience with WordPress – Sallie started out using WordPress for blogging and podcasting in 2005. The more WordPress became able to do (pages, themes, widgets), the more she used it for. For years she resisted learning PHP, but the introduction of custom post types in 2010 was a game-changer, and pulled her in. She builds custom client sites on the Genesis framework and has been committed to Gutenberg since 2018. Sallie loves CSS but still hasn’t learned JavaScript.
