WordCamp Norway 2016

Had a good time at WordCamp Norway listening to talks about WordPress being used for sites like Miljøpartiet De Grønne, Fnugg.no and United Influencers.

Talking to agencies like Dekode, Maksimer and Making Waves, it is good to hear WordPress gaining momentum in Norway and making a shift against proprietary CMS’s like Episerver for the enterprise clients.

Surfing Reve Havn

December 7th was a calm day after one of the most rainy storms in 50 years. Reve Havn had some nice 3-7ft waves rolling in with water temperature about 6 degrees celcius, perfect for winter surfing.

WooCommerce powers over a million!

We use BuiltWith to measure WooCommerce growth and compare to our competition. They just updated their entire database which includes 332 million domains, and WooCommerce just passed a million websites (up from 900k). The new number is 1,111,882 sites running WooCommerce which is close to WordPress.org usage stats of 1+ million sites with the plugin installed.

This is pretty amazing for an eCommerce platform which is just over 4 years old, but shows the powers of open source and WordPress.

WordPress now powers 1/4 of the Internet

When we launched WooCommerce back in 2011, WordPress only powered 13,1% of all websites online, but it has almost doubled that since then, and now powers a whopping 25% of all sites on the Internet.

I think open source generally grows stronger and more secure the more popular it is and more people it has working on it. We all benefit from a common platform we can build on and then differentiate on top of it, instead of reinventing the wheel over and over again for no good reason.
