Reading List #28

Hi there 👋

Not much to say about last week apart from that it was packed with way too many things and I nearly missed to hit publish on this draft here, again. Will do better next week.

Anyway, here’s a few things I found interesting.

Digital Experience Platform for WordPress

Ever since Human Made launched their Altis DXP platform, I wondered why there’s no plugin featuring some of the things they do, like for example some basic personalization. Seems like others have thought the same and Filter Digital has just released this plugin WP-DXP, which looks very promising. It’s free and will stay this way, but they intend to add pro features on top of it in the future. – WP-DXP
