Looking Ahead to 2019: WordPress in the Year to Come

What a year! At the end of 2017, I remember thinking that the previous year had been one of the biggest when it came to change in WordPress. But I didn't know what was in store for 2018!

2018 has seen some of the most fundamental and farthest-reaching changes in WordPress since its inception, embodied by the Gutenberg plugin (and the row over it).

But in my view, it's not Gutenberg that will dominate 2019—it's the changes it heralds.

So let's take a look at what 2019 might have in store for WordPress and its community of users and developers.
