What would we build if we were starting from scratch today, knowing all we’ve learned over the past 13 years of building WordPress?
Matt today officially announced the new WordPress.com: Dance to Calypso.
Today we’re announcing something brand new, a new approach to WordPress, and open sourcing the code behind it. The project, codenamed Calypso, is the culmination of more than 20 months of work by dozens of the most talented engineers and designers I’ve had the pleasure of working with (127 contributors with over 26,000 commits!).

Congratulations! It’s hard and risky to move off a legacy codebase into the future. And yet, here you are, in the future!
Thanks, Jim. It’s exciting to be a part of it. Without change, there is no progress.
New usage experience did make me come back to the service. Good work with the UI speed.
Thanks Daniel, glad you like the changes.
Thank you and congratulations ! It’s a huge step.
