Last week Matt Mullenweg, the CEO of Automattic, the company behind WordPress, delivered his annual address to the WordPress community.  This annual event called “The State of the Word” gives the WordPress community an update on what’s to come in the next year, as well as,  a little bit of the current state of WordPress.  WordPress continues to be a popular choice for websites and is also growing faster than ever, currently powering 43% of websites according to W3Techs and 32% according to Builtwith.1

Also, next year the WordPress web application is turning 20 years old, which Mullenweg noted that not many software projects make it that long.  Coincidentally, CU*Answers Web Services is also celebrating our 20th year in 2023.  CU*Answers Web Services launched our first credit union websites all the way back in 2002.  And we began using WordPress for all our site builds in 2006.
