New Plugins – #280blocks

During State of the Word, Matt Mullenweg referenced the newly increased character limit for Twitter to 280 and said, maybe we need 280 blocks.

Answering the question on Twitter "Have you thought about accessiblity" Travis Lopes posted via @gravityforms

"The majority of the block utilizes components from Gutenberg itself, so it's inheriting whatever accessibility is present there. Are there any specific areas you feel need improvement?"

Andrew Taylor showed-off his new Google Maps block during Pantheon's Webinar: "First Impressions developing for Gutenberg" on January 19. A recording is available here (after you leave your name and email address). Now the plugin made it into the WordPress Plugins repository.

Introduction to Gutenberg for users

Translated tweet by @gregoirenoyelle
Very very good presentation of tonight @imath at Meetup @wpparis. Thank you! We were a lot, motivated to start using @gutenberg. I took a few notes while waiting for the article from #msaffar

Can I still write with the Text editor and create a post in HTML? 

Timothy Unkert walks his viewers through using Gutenberg to write a post on  MathStuff4U, switching between visual editor and HTML Edit moduls.  This is the final post

Tim also posted an introduction to Gutenberg on his own site.
