Hallway Hangout: What’s new for developers in WordPress 6.4

Next month, @greenshady, @welcher, and I will host a casual conversation about the most important and exciting developer-related changes coming soon in WordPress 6.4. From BlockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. HooksHooks In WordPress theme and development, hooks are functions that can be applied to an action or a Filter in WordPress. Actions are functions performed when a certain event occurs in WordPress. Filters allow you to modify certain functions. Arguments used to hook both filters and actions look the same. and the Font Library to improved Editor flows and the new Twenty Twenty-Four theme, there is just so much to talk about.

The Hangout will begin with a brief overview of the major changes, and then we’ll open it up for group discussion and Q&A.

This event will be held on Thursday, October 12, 2023, at 1:00 PM CST (18:00 UTC), which is right before WordPress 6.4 RC1.
