The Future of WordPress is Gutenberg

The Future of WordPress is Gutenberg

WordPress has been around for 15 years. Over 30% of sites use it, and that figure continues to climb. We’re here for the long term, so we need to plan for the long term: Gutenberg has been built as the base for the next 15 years of WordPress.

What you see in the block editor is the first practical application of what’s going on underneath: a modern design process, an extensible technical architecture, and a forward-thinking foundation to build our future upon.

Let’s take a look at all of the projects going on around Gutenberg, we’ll see where they’re at, how they fit together, and how you’ll be able to use them to build your next-level WordPress experiences in the coming years.
