In this episode, John James Jacoby and I are joined by David A. Kennedy. Kennedy is a Theminator at Automattic and an accessibility advocate. Kennedy joined us to talk about the future of Underscores, a starter theme created by Automattic in 2012.
We discussed how Gutenberg may impact theme development in general and some of the lessons learned from their Components project. Kennedy tells us what trends he’s noticing with WordPress themes today and what the state of accessibility looks like for the theme landscape.
After the interview, Jacoby and I have a candid conversation about Gutenberg, what it means for WordPress, our experience with it thus far, and how it’s being developed.
