Some quick thaughts about Gutenberg based on my trip to WordCamp Montreal.
Over the last year, I have thought a lot about how the WordPress REST API changes how we build WordPress plugins. Working on Ingot has allowed me to put those ideas into practice.
It would be a shame if I put all this work into this platform that empowers people to let their voices be heard, without using it to tell my own stories.
When I was younger I didn’t want to listen to System of a Down because they were too mainstream. Eventually I got my head out of my butt, and gave them another chance. I’m still not into Toxicity, but the rest is pretty awesome.

Since I work once or twice a week at a co-working space and travel for WordCamps or to visit family fairly regularly, I’m going to need to keep my laptop for those situations. Thanks to Dropbox and Scott Kingsley Clark, it’s actually really easy to keep your WordPress VVV-based development environment in sync across multiple computers
