Update #103 – Block Development for WordPress, Managing Blocks, Themes for Gutenberg and upcoming Live Events

Airport Newark, NJ by Birgit Pauli-Haack

Howdy, howdy! And again, another three weeks came and went. I am back from Portland, OR and mostly recovered from the flu, that kept me in bed for three days. We have a lot of catching up to do! Let’s get to it!

The team released two more versions of Gutenberg 5.2 and 5.3. The latest version brings you the first version of a Block Manager and nested blocks for your Cover block, you can now use as your built-in Call-to-Action block with buttons and all. That and many more fixes and features you can read about out on the MakeBlogs for the design and core teams.

Last weekend, also WordCamp Miami happened with some great JavaScript and Block editor presentations! You’ll find goodies below: from best practices, block explorations and content creation to deep-dive into the new wp.data API.

I also found some great more block plugins for different verticals and purposes. Don’t miss the recording of this week’s Freelancer panel on Live Q & A and sign up for our upcoming events in the first week of April! — Enjoy, Birgit 💕
