The WordPress June Meetup will be all about Gutenberg – the new content editor being developed for WordPress 5.0!

A lot has changed in the last 6 months, and it’s definitely time to take another look at this feature which is sure to be a big leap forward for WordPress.

The main speaker for the June Meetup is Marion Black, who will be introducing the new GutenBerg editor and teaching us a little about how to enable and start using it. Marion has recently published a course via Udemy on the Gutenberg editor, and is kindly offering our meetup attendees access to the course for free!

Marion has been a longtime regular of WordPress Adelaide and we’re super excited to have her present for the first time.

You can find out more about Marion along with some great WordPress articles and tutorials at

The second talk will be a lightning talk (short talk) by Alex James Bishop on developing for Gutenberg and a quick run-through of some excellent resources for developers to dive into creating their own Gutenberg Blocks!
