WordCamp Video Highlight 2018/08/17

Since I first became involved with WordPress in 2010, it seems like there are several big stories throughout each year. 2018 is no exception!

Of course Gutenberg is a hot topic, which is creating strong feelings no matter how you feel about the project. The first video comes from WordCamp Vienna.

Remkus de Vries: How Gutenberg will change the WordPress landscape

As we speak WordPress is going through one of the biggest technological revolutions in its existence. The editing screen is being replaced by a brand new JavaScript-based editor. The project to make this all happen is named Gutenberg, after Johannes Gutenberg; the inventor of the printing press. This tells you something about the ambitions behind this project.

Slides for this presentation can be seen HERE.

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) went into effect on May 25th of this year. This video from WordCamp Sydney does a great job explaining why this regulation goes beyond the borders of the European Union.

Brendan Woods: GDPR, WordPress and You

The General Data Protection Regulation presents the greatest overhaul of data laws to Europe in 20 years, however its effect goes beyond the borders of the European Union.

Finally, not a video but an article on WP Tavern about WordPress.com and free speech. It’s a great read and has great comments.  You can read the article HERE.

WordCamp Video Highlight 2017/12/15

WordCamp US is two weeks past and the videos are rolling into WordPress TV.

Apparently one of the presentations that created a lot of buzz was Morten Rand-Hendriksen and his talk on the Gutenberg Editor.

WordCamp Video Highlight 2017/09/08

For the past several weeks I have been keeping my eye out for a WordCamp video that was about the Gutenberg Editor Plugin. All of my searches have returned this result…

I found several videos on YouTube but that wasn’t going to do me any good. This blog is about WordCamp videos submitted to WordPress TV.

So, my beady little mind started to churn and I decided to create my own video. I reached out to Tammie Lister, who is one of the leads for the Gutenberg project. My first thought was that Tammie could recommend someone that I could contact. I was pleasantly surprised when Tammie stated that she could show me some of the features of the plugin. So, after a little planning and a short discussion before we started the video, here are the results.
