State of the Word is an annual keynote address delivered by Matt Mullenweg, the Co-Founder of WordPress. This even allows us to reflect on the project’s progress and also the future of WordPress. State of the Word 2021 will be followed by a Q&A session. So, if you have any questions for Matt, you can send your question ahead of time to [email protected], or ask during the event in the YouTube chat.
The first-ever online State of the Word took place last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, with the situation a little under control, the event is now back to an in-person event with a full vaccination inspection. However, the event will be live-streamed as well in order to reach as many WordPressers as possible. The Livestream will be embedded on wordpress.org/news.
If you want to participate in person, you can register yourself for the event by November 28. However, the seats are limited to 50. Therefore, if you want to attend, you need to hurry up and register yourself right away! Also, you need to show your COVID vaccination card at the entrance as well. All the in-person attendees need to follow the safety measures at the venue.
Join Matt as he provides a retrospective of 2021, discusses the latest trends he’s seeing, celebrates the community’s amazing wins, and explores the future. Expect to hear about a range of topics, from WordPress 5.9 and Openverse to Web3 and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
