Talking Gutenberg on Shop Talk Show
While I’ve not been a regular listener recently, I do love the Shop Talk Show with Dave Rupert and Chris Coyier. Both Dave and Chris are smart and talented guys, and their attitude is consistently friendly and positive.
In Episode 298, they have a chat with Tammie Lister and Matias Ventura, who are the design and development leads on the Gutenberg project.
One of the things they cover (around 14 minutes in) that is really relevant to me now is the way that while they’ve supported existing metaboxes very will with Gutenberg, the paradigms that underlie them will almost certainly and appropriately change in the future. Hopefully in a few weeks I can share with you why that so caught my ear, but for now I’ll just say that I totally agree with Matias on it that the new structure naturally makes a change make sense. Metaboxes were never that great anyway.
Definitely check it out. It’s a great conversation and should give you a better understanding of how the most important people to the Gutenberg project think about their goals and methods.
