News in the WordPress world, January 2015

Before we get to post pictures and presentations about last night’s meetup, here is a quick summary of the news topics we talked about.

WordPress Lead Developer changes

Ryan Boren and Peter Westwood step down and are replaced by Helen Hou-Sandi and Dion Hulse.

Ryan Boren becomes UX lead for 2015. If you don’t already, I’d suggest following make.wordpress.org/flux to find out more about some of the biggest UX issues in WordPress.

Pressnomics is a WordPress conference for entrepreneurs and business owners. A few weeks ago, over 250 attendees met in Phoenix to talk about the economics around WordPress. One of the key events of the conference was a QA with Matt Mullenweg, founder of WordPress and CEO of Automattic.

The session wasn’t recorded, but a few quotes generated quite a lot of talk around the future of WordPress, our competitors, and how we need to change to create the next WordPress.

Here are a few of Matt’s quotes:

Following discussion

Matt was referring to plugins transforming WordPress in a turn-key solution including the features that people creating websites have come to expect: social, mobile, stats, … These are all baked in tools like Wix, Squarespace, or Weebly.

Chris Lema – Is the Future Success of WordPress tied to Jetpack?
WP Tavern – How Important is Jetpack on WordPress’ Road to 50% Market Share?
