Week 43 Weeklog for the 43th week (Monday, October 25 – Sunday, October 31) Here’s a review of some of the things I worked on during the past week. Background editor improvements I finished a draft for the post for the Background editor exploration that Channing and I worked on a while ago. We’ll probably publish it this week, but there’s a copy in that Figma file that you can read now. I also created three walkthroughs that explain the concepts and ideas of that exploration. Click on each of the following images to launch the prototypes. Sidebar inspector I also continued my exploration of the Inspector sidebar components. My goal is to document and extend the work that Shaun has done on the Inspector sidebar and make a comprehensive list of all components to simplify and organize the sidebar sections. Talk for WordCamp España 2021 I finished preparing my talk for the upcoming WordCamp España. It’ll be an extended version of the one I gave at WordCamp Europe about how to start designing for WordPress. The talk is scheduled for this Thursday 4 at 18:15 CET.
