Post Status Comments (No. 9) — The State of WordPress Market Share
“In order for WordPress to win, the rest of the competition doesn’t have to lose.” — David Bisset
How should the WordPress community react to the first recorded dip in market share? Is a small decline something to be concerned about or more of an opportunity to examine what defines WordPress as a successful platform? Are the Gutenberg project, Full Site Editing, other core features, or competitor innovations important factors? Should some organizations in the WordPress space be playing a bigger role as contributors?
Special guests Joost de Valk, Alex Denning, and Jessica Frick discuss these subjects with host David Bisset — and near the end Ben Gabler joins in.
