The Gatsby WordPress Integration Workshop
Learn how to use Gatsby's new WordPress integration from one of the people who built it: Jason Bahl, creator of WPGraphQL! During this workshop with Jason and Gatsby Engineering Manager, Shane Thomas, you will integrate data from WordPress into an existing site using Gatsby as the frontend for headless WordPress.
Watch how installing the plugin and adding your WPGraphQL enabled endpoint makes your WordPress content available in Gatsby's data layer and available to use in your React templates. See for yourself how we have both solved the hardest parts of working with WordPress and encapsulated all of our best practices into an open source plugin -- while still leveraging popular WordPress plugins for content modeling, translation, e-commerce, and more!
