    Seeing you an Josepha on a street gave me huge WordCamp feels. Oh how I miss walking down the street in a new beautiful city and just randomly running into dear friends.

      Oh dear, I know! By the way, I was referring to this article on Twitter. It sent me down on memory lane and I realised how much I miss human interaction and my WPeeps!

    The Gutenberg project is seriously lacking a roadmap and the little documentation there is, is constantly being obsoleted.

    Any thoughts about that?

    Thank you for your words. Thinking back, I am glad I was part of the 5.5 squad. People don’t realize how much work goes into a release, it really shows the commitment and love contributors have for the project.

    Looking forward to being part of the 5.6 squad and learning even more.

    Thank you Francesca.

    I will never forget how much you helped me when I first organised a WordCamp in my city in 2016, when you were assigned as my mentor.

    I’m happy to read your story here, your excellence and values are very precious to our dear WP community at large.

    Looking forward to see again as soon as possible (post-pandemic) in a WordCamp or another <3
