WordPress is a free and open-source content management system, or CMS, written in PHP. Since its release in 2003, WordPress has become ubiquitous on the web. It is estimated that roughly 60 million websites use WordPress as a CMS. However, despite its popularity, WordPress has limitations in its design. WordPress sites are dynamic, and the front and back end are tightly coupled. A dynamic, full-stack application can be useful when handling complex functionality, but it also slows down the site and opens up security vulnerabilities.
Strattic is a static site generator and hosting platform that specializes in converting WordPress sites into a static architecture. Static pages are isolated from the backing application, improving security against common WordPress vulnerabilities. Modern web users have high expectations for speed and security, and Strattic helps WordPress sites achieve this without sacrificing the benefits of the WordPress platform.
Zeev Suraski is the CTO of Strattic. Zeev is one of the architects and principal authors of the PHP language, which is the foundation of WordPress. Zeev joins the show today to talk about the place of PHP in modern web development, and how Strattic helps WordPress developers build modern, fast, and secure sites.
