While WordPress is still the CMS with the largest market share by far, certain proprietary CMSs have been heavily catching up in the past few years.

Despite a much more limited feature set, they are gaining popularity, and much of that can be attributed to better user experience and performance.

Admittedly, proprietary CMSs hosted in a controlled environment and maintained by a single company have a much easier job improving performance, compared to an open-source CMS with a massive third-party ecosystem with over 60,000 plugins and themes like WordPress.

But exploring ways to enhance performance in WordPress at scale is crucial for long-term success and, with over 40% market share, should even be a responsibility towards the open web.

In late 2021, the official WordPress performance team was formed, to tackle monitoring, enhancing, and promoting performance in the WordPress ecosystem.

This session will take a closer look at the origin of the team, its focus areas and initial priorities, the goals achieved so far, the roadmap for the future, and how you can help.
