Shortcut to Gutenberg: How To Learn Gutenberg Development in 6 Days

So I published How To Learn Gutenberg Development, which outlines a roadmap for learning ES6, React, Redux, and Gutenberg. This is a proven, and sure way to master Gutenberg.

But this approach also takes time. In fact several readers have reached out to me expressing that they don’t have time for a long learning process.

With Gutenberg in Core, developers need to be productive with Gutenberg right now.

As a consequence I’ve reworked my initial learning approach, to fit with this short timeframe. The learning process outlined below takes 6 days, or 3 weekends, or 48 hours.

At the end of it, you’ll be able to:

  • Adapt existing WordPress themes to work with Gutenberg content.
  • Add Gutenberg specific features to themes.
  • Understand the basics of React.
  • Feel comfortable exploring Gutenberg’s user interface component library.
  • Develop custom Gutenberg blocks.
