Our Development Process

Data-informed, user-driven ·For every new site and feature we launch, we gather metrics about its usage, interaction, and growth in addition to listening to the masses of feedback we get on our blog and through support channels. Gathering metrics helps us make inform decisions about new features and enhancements. It’s not uncommon to launch a site or feature and then redesign it immediately.

We have a one-button deploy system for WordPress.com, and we push code to the site 60–80 times a day. WordPress.com is synced with the WordPress.org trunk pretty much every weekday. We’re strong believers in Open Source, and we try to open source everything we can.
