Gutenberg Times: All-things about the WordPress Block Editor and Gutenberg plugin in development

Pauli-Haack plans to cover all the latest updates on full-site editing, block-based themes, and global styles. The panel will also touch on the navigation and widget screens, as well as what features will most likely land in WordPress 5.7.

Discussion Topic

MVP – minimum viable product – “a version of a new product which allows teams to collect the maximum amount of validated learning about customers with the least amount of effort. 

MVP Definition

“The ultimate goal of an MVP is learning. Because unless you’re getting valuable insights from the MVP, it doesn’t matter how many engineering hours you spent or how fast you got it to market. It’s not about proving if you can build it or even how, but why customers should even care in the first place.”
