I usually don’t post “New Years” blog posts – I usually only have a post on the blog’s birthday – but as it’s still the last calendar week of 2021, and I’m unsure if I have to post something for #project26, I will tell you a bit about this new year from my perspective.
This is either my last blog post of last year or the first one of this year 😉 Even though there are some things coming up this year, I will try to continue posting bi-weekly. I will also try to comment on other blogs, but I really struggle even reading lots of blog posts.
WordPress releases and Full Site Editing (FSE)
This year might be the first one with four major releases of WordPress. With the upcoming version 5.9 later this month, we will get a new default theme: TwentyTwentyTwo! So this year I’m finally planning to create my first FSE theme, either in a client project or by rewriting my currently used theme.
Retiring a plugin
With the release of 5.9 there will also be a new feature: the language switcher on the login screen. With this new feature, one of my first two plugins can finally be retired.
WordCamp Europe 2022 … in Porto!
The main “event” for me will be WordCamp Europe 2022, which will finally be held in Porto! Our organizing team is working hard to bring the community together. But as corona/covid will still be around, we will make sure, to also make it as safe for everyone as possible. After this edition, I will also retire from organizing WCEU – at least for some time.
The last two years have been tough for many of us. Finally, 2022 looks like the year we can enjoy some of the things we love! I can’t wait to see many of you either in Porto or on another WordCamp this year! With FSE being almost there, I also think that I will have some great topics to write about.
