Today is the 19th anniversary since WordPress’ first release, which is especially exciting for a number of reasons:
- The community put together an awesome site celebrating the occasion at wp19.day.
- We just had an awesome 6.0 “Arturo” release.
- Next week June 2-4 WordCamp Europe returns in-person in Porto, Portugal, and I’ll be there and so excited to connect with the community! Tickets are still available.
- Nineteen seems like an in-between number, but actually it’s very salient for me because now WordPress is the same age I was when the first release came out.
- Which means I’ve now been working on WordPress half my life!
Cheers and here’s to many more years together.
