Welcome to WP Briefs for Tuesday, May 16th, 2023.

In our first story, a new beta for Micro.blog 3.0 has added support for posting to external blogs like WordPress. This means that users of Micro.blog who also have WordPress blogs will be able to cross-post their content seamlessly and efficiently.

Tom Willmot from Human Made believes that open source and AI are a perfect combination within the WordPress community. He is inspired by the transparency, collaboration, and commitment found within open source communities, and he draws from these qualities in his own work. This inspiration has led him, and the team at Human Made, to create the AI for WordPress event, which is scheduled for May 25th.

In another story, Angela Jin explores the future of WordCamps and highlights how these events serve as a point of connection within the WordPress community. She emphasizes how vital they are to the growth of both software and the community.

Next, there is a proposal for local WordPress groups, like WordPress Spain, to have their own Handbook that is tailored to their respective cultures, in addition to using the global Handbooks. This approach would provide local groups with a Handbook that is complementary to the global version, rather than relying solely on translations.

Lastly, Veerle Verbert’s latest video on WordPress TV delves into CSS evolution and its upcoming powers such as container queries, subgrid, color-contrast and more. She highlights how these can take block editors like Gutenberg to the next level by making possible what once required awful hacks. It is an appeal for extra CSS love within the Gutenberg project while emphasizing the importance of learning CSS deeply.

That’s it for today’s WP Briefs! You can find show notes and links to related articles on the website.
