About this webinar:

This month’s Couch Coding is focused on digging into what’s new in WordPress 5.0. The next release of WordPress is an iconic release as it includes a new block editing experience (AKA Gutenberg). Users unaware of this release will see a completely new content admin following an update to 5.0. Outside of the new editing experience, there is a new theme rolling out, Twenty Nineteen, that supports the block editor better.

Join Pantheon Developer Programs Engineer Andrew Taylor and WP Sessions Education Director Brian Richards as they discuss WordPress 5.0 and what to expect upon upgrade.

What you’ll learn:

  • What Changed in WordPress 5.0
  • How the New Editor Works
  • What the New Theme, Twenty Nineteen, Looks Like
  • How to Update to WordPress 5.0
