A presentation at WordCamp Los Angeles by Francesca Marano
For the next two years, there are at least six WordPress releases scheduled. While some features are yet to be determined, there is already a rich and interesting list of enhancements that are planned.
What does the future have in store for the WordPress industry? If you are part of it, you should be aware of what’s in the pipeline for 2020 and beyond and how it could affect you and your business.
Join me to hear the latest news and plans from the WordPress project.

Most recent live demo of Full Site Editing
The full-page-editing won’t make all the previous features obsolete, but bring it all into a single user interface so the site owner, blogger, the end user, don’t need to learn all about the various pieces, and just update their content where they want to.
How is WordPress doing so far? What does it mean for Themes developers, what do they need to learn?
All-things about the WordPress Block Editor
Full site editing will change how everyone uses themes, and how we build them. Free, sponsorship encouraged course, to learn how to build block-based themes
As work on Full Site Editing continues, it’s important that communication around the project is made explicit so everyone can follow along appropriately. Each person will have their own unique needs in keeping up with a project of this scale so what follows is more of a catalogue of ways to keep up rather than a recommendation for how to do so.
In late 2018, WPCampus released a request for proposals to conduct an accessibility audit of the WordPress Gutenberg editor.

This audit is intended to help higher education institutions, and the whole WordPress community, make informed decisions about when and how to upgrade to the new editor.
