WPWeekly Episode 288 – No React.js Framework for Gutenberg

While I was supposed to be on vacation last week, I instead had surgery for a broken ankle. Tune in to hear the hilarious explanation on how I broke it. The lesson I learned is to not chase animals out of the yard.

John James Jacoby and I discuss the news of the week, including a major decision where Gutenberg will not be written in React due to a patent clause in its license. Other topics include, blind speaker selection for WordCamp US, bbPress performance improvements, and our picks of the week.
