Birgit Pauli-Haack




This week, what's inspiring Birgit Pauli-Haack, a WordPress Developer Advocate at Automattic, curator at Gutenberg Times, and co-host of the Gutenberg Changelog podcast.

A podcast worth listening to: 
Going outside the WordPress space with this question. Syntax FM with Wes Bos and Scott Tulinski – just the wealth of information about JavaScript, ReactJS and modern web development and the delivery is refreshing. And This week in Google with Leo Laporte, Jeff Jarvis, Stacey Higginbotham, and Ant Pruit is an insightful conversation on tech news.

A concept worth understanding: 
WordPress block patterns are a designed collection of core blocks a user can instantly use in their WordPress site and just add their content and pictures. They are easy to create. Every theme should have plenty of them. On the website, you can copy a few into your site. Soon, they will be available through the block editor inserter. To learn more: Gutenberg Times Block Pattern Resource List.

A Twitter account worth following: 
@Good First Bugs is the most interesting bot for people who want to start contributing to WordPress. Ryan Welcher created the code to query Trac and GitHub tickets for the account's tags and tweets them.

An article worth reading: 
Matias Ventura's blog post The theme.json horizon for everyone who wants to understand where WordPress theme development is going.

A habit worth forming: 
A 2-3 mile walk during your lunch break, if possible in a forest or park.
