WPWeekly Episode 331 – Status Update on Gutenberg With Gary Pendergast

In this episode, John James Jacoby and I are joined by Gary Pendergast, Gutenberg and WordPress core contributor to get an update on Gutenberg’s progress. We discuss its rollout on WordPress.com, the feedback and sentiment shared thus far, and when we can expect to see it merged into WordPress 5.0.

  1. Listening to the podcast I thought Gary did an amazing job of explaining the gberg project from a very non biased way. I am also very impressed with the job the team is doing despite the huge amount negativity toward the project.


    1. So what is a “blockalypse” & what do you predict will happen?


      1. It will be when Gutenberg is released and when that happens, there will be loads of blocks. (I mean, 100,000s will be developed every month!) And we won’t know what to do with them all!


  2. Glad to get comments from someone who is really close to the project. Thanks for giving us some “insider info”.


  3. Interesting concept of Gutenberg being adopted by other open source projects. I guess that could happen given it is GPL.
