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.

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.
