Gutenberg is the code name for the longest-running feature release that the WordPress team and community has ever worked on. Development on Gutenberg began in January of 2017 and the production-ready release (WordPress 5.0) is targeted for April 2018. In short, Gutenberg is going to fundamentally change the way users assemble and manage content in WordPress. It's designed to simplify WordPress content, including custom post types, shortcodes, widgets, menus, and more, into one concept: content blocks. Content blocks are like digital legos that you can move and stack on a page to create a variety of layouts that are unachievable within the current WordPress editor. We will walk through Gutenberg and demonstrate how it will change WordPress as we know it in the Gallery and Listening Room at Studio IX.
