re: Is Wordpress still applicable in Web Developement? VIEW POST


WordPress has a big enough adoption and market that despite some negative reputation it's gained from an engineer's perspective, It's not going anywhere anytime soon.

I personally only think it deserves half the hate it gets from developers on the web. A lot of people want to do things on WordPress sites that they probably shouldn't which usually involves some developers to suffer, but on it's own it still holds a valid use case.

As for something to learn as a web developer, I would say it's entirely applicable, it's just up to your preference. If you are, be sure to check out their open source project Calypso!

What are you looking to learn about WordPress and do with WordPress mostly?

  • Building websites for clients?
  • Building Themes and Plugins for the marketplace?
