WordPress is changing the way you build content
4 score and 579 years ago there existed an important man named Gutenberg, who dabbled in mirrors and rays of light. Through extraordinary vision and likely a bit of luck, produced what we now know as “moveable type”. This discovery gave way to the printing press and allowed written knowledge to easily spread throughout the globe changing the world as we know it today.
Why does this matter?
If you are one of our valued clients, you likely have a WordPress website which is about to unveil version 5.0 that is aptly named “Project Gutenberg”.
Their aim, simply put, is to re-envision the WordPress editor and allow users to use “design blocks” as opposed to the very basic text areas to edit their website content.
“The editor will create a new page- and post-building experience that makes writing rich posts effortless, and has “blocks” to make it easy what today might take shortcodes, custom HTML, or “mystery meat” embed discovery.” — Matt Mullenweg, creator of WordPress
Using our focused programming process mixed with the advancements in Project Gutenberg, we will open new doors to your website editing experience. This will allow you to truly shape the visual potential of your website right from your browser. This advancement has massive implications on your website design and building your next website can take full advantage of this new technology.
Project Gutenberg was even mentioned by Google and demonstrated at their annual developer conference this year. They gave us a solid forecast of the future of this technology that is now in the hands of designers and coders to run with.
Exciting times ahead.
