So Matt Mullenweg just gave his annual State of the Word talk at WordCamp US this year and set the tone for where WordPress will be going in the next year. Due to the differences in timezone I wasn’t able to watch the live stream of his talk but I managed to grab a recording of it by logging into my free WordCamp US live stream ticket. Thank you guys for allowing us to grab a free ticket to watch the live stream online. In the state of the word talk, Matt Mullenweg highlights the accomplishments of the current year and sets the direction for the year ahead for WordPress. This year too Matt focussed on a variety of topics including growth in the number of WordPress events worldwide, WordPress Foundation, bug hunting, localization, launching of a new program, WordPress growth council, SSL, REST API, WP CLI and more importantly Gutenberg. Introduction The state of the word talk began with a short poem by Amanda Giles on WordPress which was followed by Matt’s appreciation for her piece of work and a small thank you note by Matt to the sponsors of WordCamp US 2017 for making it possible to organize such a grand event yet affordable by many. It was followed by a self introduction
