- Scaffolding a custom testimonial block with the create-guten-block utility using Node JS
- Building out the scaffolded testimonial block with React and JSX with extensive code examples
- Approach to defining attributes and adding inspector controls for the scaffolded block

There’s something for everyone in this tutorial, which makes it a great resource for WordPress developers on any level! Notably, the tutorial does a fantastic job of contrasting what it looks like to register a block using something like Advanced Custom Fields – a very turn-key, PHP-based solution – vs using full-blown scaffolding and further development with React and JSX. Nice job on this one, Jason!
