Welcome to WP Briefs for May 3rd, 2023.

WordCamp US 2023 tickets are now on sale, which is great news for WordPress enthusiasts! This year’s event will take place in National Harbor, Maryland, and will feature speakers, workshops, and networking opportunities for attendees. If you’re interested in attending, be sure to purchase your tickets soon.

In other news, a new website called WP Speakers has been launched to help event organizers find speakers for their events. The website was created by Michelle Frechette, Director of Community Engagement at StellarWP. This is a great resource for anyone looking to book speakers for WordPress-related events.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a hot topic among marketers lately, especially in regards to content marketing strategy. Some experts are concerned that AI is challenging old practices to an extent that could have negative consequences. However, many marketers are excited about the potential benefits of using AI in content creation.

The latest release of WordPress (version 6.2, also known as Dolphy) was released on March 29th and includes several exciting updates. One of the most notable new features is the Site Editor, which allows users to customize their websites with a drag-and-drop interface.

As we approach the 20th anniversary of WordPress on May 27th, the Make Marketing team has announced a campaign called #WP20 From Blogs to Blocks to celebrate WordPress and its impact over the past two decades. There are many ways to get involved and show your support for this historic event.

Finally, there has been some discussion about the role of AI in WordPress Core. While AI technology is not currently included in Core, the project aims to enable innovation and progress through extension wherever possible and sensible. It will be interesting to see how AI continues to evolve and influence the future of WordPress development.
