Monthly Roundup November 2019

Hey folks 👋

We will remember this November for many things. Some of which are listed below.

“State of the Word” mention by Matt

Our work on Gutenberg for our client Mortgage Bankers Association was featured by WordPress founder, Matt Mullenweg in his annual “State of the Word” speech at WordCamp US 2019. 

We had designed a complete newsletter creation and editing experience inside WordPress using Gutenberg. You can see it in action from the below video portion. We will be happy to answer any follow-up questions that you may have!

Hosting Google Event in our Pune office

We hosted an official Google for WordPress Publishers (#GfWP) event in our Pune office organized by the Pune WordPress Meetup group on the topic “Building User-first WordPress Sites with AMP”. The event had three speakers from Google – Alberto Medina, Felix Arntz, and James Osborne who spent hours helping attendees make the web better for everyone.

rtCamper Imran, who is also a YouTuber, did a quick interview with Alberto and Felix to understand Google’s efforts behind AMP. Below is the video of the interview.

A day before WordCamp Ahmedabad, we are organizing an event on Careers in Open Source and Beyond in collaboration with the Career Development Centre, Ahmedabad University and the Programming Club. Three rtCampers – Rahul Bansal, Chandra Patel, and Imran Sayed will be speaking and answering all your questions there. The event is free to attend. Please RSVP if you are interested.

That is all from the month of November, people. See you again next time. 👋
