Hello and welcome to WP Briefs for Tuesday 13th June 2023. Here are today’s top news stories:

First up, the Community Team Training have a new meetup titled “Understanding GPL Compliance for WordCamp and Meetups” that is scheduled for June 22nd. The training session will focus on understanding GPL compliance for WordCamp and Meetup, with a goal of educating attendees on best practices for these events. RSVP is required.

Next, WordCampers are demanding changes to the Q&A format at live events. While Q&A segments can be valuable points of connection between speakers and attendees, they are often used incorrectly. Suggested solutions include submitting questions in writing ahead of time or allowing speakers to opt out of Q&A entirely.

In other news, one WordPress user shares their love for using WordPress blocks and the site editor in WordPress, providing insight into how others can learn to embrace these features as well.

Effortless documentation is made possible by modern tools like GitHub Copilot and other extensions that help developers generate documentation more efficiently within an IDE. This article, by Tom McFarlin, looks at why documentation is important and how it can be made easier with modern technology.

Lastly today, check out six ways you can reduce TTFB (Time To First Byte) & server response times on WordPress. These top tools offer quick wins when it comes to improving UX design, bettering Core Web Vitals scores, and increasing search rankings.
