What is WPBlockTalk?

WPBlockTalk is a live, virtual event with speakers from all across the WordPress community, from theme designers to plugin developers to the people who’ve been key to designing and developing the block editor itself. Learn to make the most of the block editor, and get inspired to build more engaging layouts — or your own custom blocks!

The entire broadcast has been published on WordPress.tv for you to watch (or re-watch) whenever you’d like.
