On May 25th, 2022 we celebrated WordPress’s 19th anniversary. With the help of wp19.day (which partnered with Envira Gallery, Post Status, and GoDaddy Pro) two live events were held that day — each with a group of guests that have been and currently are deeply involved in the WordPress community: Mary Job, Nathan Wrigley, Naoko Takano, Olivia Bisset, Yvette Sonneveld, Taco Verdo, and Nyasha Green.

This episode truly represents the global and diverse culture that the WordPress community represents. As we got people sharing a few of their favorite WordPress memories, we quickly got into a deeper conversation about the state of the project and community today — and what we hope to see for it in the future.

I hope you link to this episode! It’s quite long but worthwhile, and it ought to be preserved as part of WordPress’s historical record. Enjoy!
