WordPress has a lot of room to grow at the enterprise level ✨ Last night, I spoke at the WP Enterprise Gap event which was fully packed at #WCEU — all hosted by the amazing and growing agency alliance.

A 🧵 on our opportunities... Image
We tend to use these WordPress adoption numbers everywhere (such as 43% of the web, etc.). These are numbers to be proud of, but imho not KPIs to lead the way. Let's dig into some of the data behind these figures... Image
I looked at the new WP sites detected in the last quarter (within the Top 100k of global sites — as this is generally a decent scope for enterprise). I feel this is the closest representation of what is happening "now" in terms of traction... Image

A 🧵 following up the #WCLisboa #Diversity panel w/ @zetaraffix & @JhamileAbuabara
🌟 Proactive Outreach & Engagement:
Reach out to underrepresented communities, organizations and individuals, encouraging them to submit talk proposals and participate in the speaker selection process to amplify diverse voices on stage!

Let's talk about what it's like to contribute to WordPress outside of the project itself.

I've been doing it out of my own pocket for over a decade and it's been a struggle.

It's made me think a lot about open source sustainability in WordPress.

So here's a 🧵 and a warning 🤣 Image
Before we start, here's a little about my situation.

Most of what I work on making WordPress serverless is open source. I started @YmirApp to fund that open source work, but that hasn't worked so far so I created a GitHub sponsor page.…

Alright, let's go!
So we hear a lot about #FiveForTheFuture. WordPress companies and agencies pay developers to work on the WordPress project. This ensures that it receives the support it needs from the businesses that thrive because of it.

This is a great initiative!…

Kicking off my #WCUS session on a #NewEraOfThemes!

Follow along: A New Era of WordPress Them...
Let’s talk about:

1. What makes a block theme different
2. The architecture behind them
3. How they facilitate full site editing
4. How to build one using Create Block Theme
Blocks are cool micro experiences within the editor — but they’re only as good as the holistic WordPress experience. And you know what drives much of that?

Your theme.

If you’re using the block editor — your theme has never been more relevant in this #NewEraOfThemes.

Went to my first #WordCamp earlier this year and with #WCUS around the corner, I wanted to share 8 tips that may help another first-timer🧵👇🏾.
First off, pack light & casual my friends. Although this can be considered a work conference it's still very casual. Pull out your fav gym shoes & sandals, I over-packed & can be fashionably extra 💅🏾 but t'was a waste. There were many outfits & shoes that didn't come out. 2/11
2. Check the #WCUS site prior & SIGN UP for those classes! Check the site early to see what classes they are offering & who is speaking, use that to build an itinerary for each day. They are dropping gems💎, honey. From amateur to experience there's something for everyone. 3/11

Starting a thread here on #wcus @marktimemedia workshop on designing the WordPress theme that thinks of everything. 1/
@marktimemedia What should a theme do?

- Support all possible content that could be put into the site (content is meant to change, never perfect, account for any future decision possible)
- Support all devices (break points based on size not device, accessibility) 2/
@marktimemedia - Support all elements: all semantic HTML, all WordPress content types

Identify the extremes and the fallbacks.

By end of 2019 WordPress will be dropping a bunch of #PHP support.

It's good to for the project I've been working on have a go live date.

5.6 in April next year and then 7.0 by end of 2019.

But also we're teaching users to keep PHP up to date. #WCUS

Yes I wish we were going to 7.1 but the foundations to keep updating is getting set. So proud of the team who have been working on it. 💪
My bad as @TacoVerdo pointed out it's PHP7 rather than 7.0.

Talked to the team and we could aim for PHP7.2.

Shout out to the rest of the team : @schlessera @felixarntz @GaryPendergast @AlexDenning @GetSource and others 🥰🥰🥰
