The official WordPress survey was taken about a month ago, and the fruits of that research will be at least partially on display during Matt Mullenweg’s State of the Word address later this morning.
I happened across a sneak peek at a few of those official numbers yesterday, via totally legitimate means of course. It was either a very kind release of fun information for the readers here at WPCandy, or a series of facts scribbled on a piece of paper I found discarded on the conference floor. I’ll never tell.
First of all, there were over 18,000 people who responded and took the survey. Of those 18,000 who called themselves developers, 92% say they’re using WordPress as a CMS, or content management system. There are more numbers to be had, but not until the State of the Word.
Would you like more numbers like that? Yeah, me too.
If you’d like to catch Mullenweg’s State of the Word (and more of this really interesting survey data) when it happens today, you can do that by watching the official livestream at 11:30 am PST. If you’re going to be virtually joining the number of attendees at WordCamp today, leave a note below so we can wave at you on camera.
