Notes from WordCamp Phoenix

This week, I’m speaking at WordCamp Phoenix (my first time in Arizona!). My talk is called “Think Outside the Block”, and covers the myriad ways you can customise the block editor.

Here’s the talk description, and the slides are below.

The block editor in WordPress (aka Gutenberg) offers a structured way of creating content through customizable “blocks”. But building custom blocks isn’t the only way to extend the editor; you can also register sidebars, enable custom toolbar buttons, and much more. In this talk, you’ll learn how to use these extension points to transform the block editor… without building a single block.
