WordCamp US 2019 – State Of The Word – My Thoughts

So WordCamp US 2019 was this weekend in St. Louis, Missouri. I watched from afar on the live stream. I’m so glad they had that feature. Thanks #WCUS organizers!

One of the biggest parts of WordCamp US is when WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg gives the State Of The Word speech at the end of the second day.

Here are my takeaways:

  • WordPress isn’t going anywhere. It powers even more of the Web than it did last year. Still about 1/3 of the Web.
  • The Block Editor is coming along with more and more features coming.
  • You’ll be able to add Blocks and activate them right from the editor without having to leave editor. This is huge.
  • The Twenty-Twenty theme looks slick.

This is what stuck with me. Over at the PostStatus site there is an even better run down.

If you get a chance to go to a WordCamp — GO! It’s well worth it.
