Joost De Valk, the founder of Yoast aka the WordPress SEO plugin and NEW head of Marketing for WordPress’ Automatic, has updated the 2019 Roadmap for WordPress.
Now that Gutenberg, the codename for WordPress update 5.x, has successfully launched, phase 2 of the Block editor updates will be rolling out in the months and years to come.
Why is this important?
WordPress is the system that powers 32% of the major websites of the world. (The percentage for total and not as important websites is likely much higher.)
WordPress originally made simple publishing easier, faster and most importantly Effective.
This new age of WordPress will make editing and perfecting content easier, faster and more effective for users (not just developers or people that code).
Businesses or artists can improve or evolve the online manifestations of the services, products and art or knowledge they share with more ease, automation and more.
We are on the cusp of another evolution in the web, where the speed of improvements on the web will increase dramatically.
Check out the roadmap to get a sense of what is coming next and chart a path to align with these changes.
