“Not Beginner” series:
——————
This is a meetup in our “Not Beginner” series. This series includes anything that is, well, not a beginner/introductory level topic. Thus, talks in this series will range from not very advanced at all – just barely above beginner – to deep dive dev talks.

Anyone at any experience level is welcome to attend, but for “not beginner” talks there will be an assumption in the presentations and discussion that attendees have some knowledge of WordPress, and/or the presented topic.

February 2021 Ottawa Meetup – Gutenberg/Blocks one page website

Build a one page website with Gutenberg/Blocks

WordPress’s new built in block editor, aka Gutenberg, now gives WordPress users unprecedented editing and design capabilities that are native to WordPress. With a few choice plugins, to add a few bells and whistles, pages can be created in WordPress that rival those created with the add-on page-builders like Divi, Beaver, and Elementor.

Join in this online session where we will create a complete one page site from scratch, using WordPress’s block editor.
