In this episode, John James Jacoby recaps his trip to WordCamp Grand Rapids and shares his experience. WordCamp Grand Rapids had a strong focus on tools, plugins, and themes and by all accounts, was a successful event.
We discussed Matt Mullenweg’s Summertime update, the roadmap for merging Gutenberg into core, and what comes after Gutenberg. We shared our thoughts on Automattic’s new board member, General Ann Dunwoody and speculated on Automattic’s vision.
We wrap up the show by talking about generational divides in WordPress.

Listen To Episode #323:
Every longtime user on WordPress.com who has an interest in the broader WordPress community is checking their WP Admin dashboard regularly to see if Gutenberg has arrived. For whatever reason, new dotcom signups don’t have a direct link to WP Admin in their Calypso dashboard, so I wonder who is being targeted. Hoping it will be announced on the dotcom blog soon.
