WordPress (WP) is a PHP content management system (CMS) and one of the most common open source technologies available. WP initially started as a blogging management system and has since grown to support robust websites including e-commerce.
WP is not developed by a single person but a community of passionate and professional developers. There are hundreds and thousands of small and large businesses selling products and services based on the WP CMS. Sites like the official Star Wars site, Disney, Time Inc., and even the luxury brand Mercedes Benz. Feel free to troll a list of notable brands running on WP.
The WP community is not just one company, person, or a small group that would just suddenly disappear. It consists of hundreds and thousands of people from all over the world. While WordPress itself is free, this ecosystem alone powers millions of dollars in annual revenue for businesses. In short, WordPress is not going anywhere and its future is bright.
