Full site editing for theme developers
So, I wanted to do some quick slides about where you can find documentation and how to stay up to date with changes to full site editing.
[Screen: All links can be found in the course material]
The core editor team, the group of people who are in charge of Gutenberg development, has weekly online meetings on Wednesdays, at 1400 UTC.
To participate, you need to have a WordPress.org Slack account. Meeting notes are published after each meeting, and you can read them at make.wordpress.org/core.
The core editor team also publish monthly summaries and information about each update.
The tag you want to look for is #core-editor.
The second place you want to look at is the Gutenberg repository on GitHub.
The two labels that you may want to follow are Feature: Full site editing and Feature: Themes.
Here, you can read and participate in discussions about upcoming changes,
open issues when you find bugs, and contribute to improving full site editing.
The official documentation; yeah, there is nothing much to see here.
OK, there is some documentation for full site editing, but it is very limited.
I want to do a special mention about a blog called Gutenberg Times, and their podcast, the Gutenberg Changelog. They post high quality content frequently and share interesting views about Gutenberg, blocks, and full site editing. So that might be worth checking out.

The full site editing outreach program
The full site editing outreach program is a way to gather feedback from website creators and users who uses Gutenberg and wants to help test full site editing.
You can read the introduction post here: https://make.wordpress.org/core/2020/05/01/an-experimental-outreach-project-for-full-site-editing/
Communication regarding this program happens on the WordPress slack in the public channel called #fse-outreach-experiment.
