Embracing the change: How to win with Gutenberg

Change can be hard, but can also usher in great excitement and positive changes as well. And change is coming to the WordPress world in the form of Gutenberg.  

Gutenberg will become the default editor in WordPress once version 5.0 rolls out, which is expected to happen towards the end of 2018. This feature-rich editor makes it easier for people with a non-technical background to use WordPress to quickly build sleek, high-performing, great-looking websites.

Since our overarching mission at WP Engine is to help you win with WordPress, that means helping you win with Gutenberg.

Hear from the WordPress experts from WP Engine, including one of the core contributors to Gutenberg, Anthony Burchell, as we help you navigate the world of Gutenberg – what it is, what it’s not, and how to strategically think about rolling out within your organization.
