The most important information on the e-Privacy Regulation

E-Privacy Regulation: What is actually in store for us?

Although the e-privacy regulation will probably not be adopted until 2020, it is already casting its shadow. But don't panic: Just as the world did not end when GDPR came into force, contrary to all predictions, this will not happen when the e-privacy regulation comes into force. To prepare you for the new regulation, lawyer Mario Steinberg has an overview of the current and future legal situation regarding the use of tracking tools as well as valuable tips.


WooCommerce-Reports in Slack
You want to check your sales figures without logging into the backend of your shop? No problem - just Ian Poulson from Delicious Brains shows you step by step how to create your own Slack app that gives you reports for different time periods with a simple Slack command like "/woo month" WooCommerce.

Less waste at the WCEU
The organisers of WordCamp Europe have joined forces with the Zero Waste e.V. to reduce the amount of waste generated during the event. We also pay a lot of attention to sustainabilitye.g. in the form of green electricity, compensation payments for our CO2 emissions, environmentally friendly giveaways, recyclable materials and the avoidance of waste. As a sponsor of the WCEU, we are therefore very happy about these efforts.

Gutenberg-Create blocks without JS
Birgit Pauli-Haack from Gutenberg Times tests three plugins with which you can create your own Gutenberg block for your individual needs without JavaScript. As a test case, she creates a "team block" with each of the plugins, which displays photos and contact details of people and can thus be used for a company website, for example. You can read the conclusion of her test here.

Colours from real life
Coming up with beautiful colour palettes is not that easy. A British agency had a creative idea for this: the project Found Color publishes photos whose motif shows an interesting colour combination - including the corresponding colour codes. The result is an archive of great colour combinationswhich were neither generated by algorithms nor based on classical rules of colour theory.
