During this online training course, we’ll cover what the new Gutenberg WordPress editor means for themes and how it will impact the frontend experience. Then we’ll dive into code to make a Gutenberg-compatible theme by styling the new blocks and making changes to the Gutenberg editor (like creating custom color palettes and block templates). At the end of this training, you’ll have enough in your tool belt to start designing themes for Gutenberg.
The course will take just two and half hours with an extensive Q&A time at the end.
