Venus Wants To Know if WordPress Is Simple

Someone asked me, “Is WordPress simple?

One way to look at this begins with some statistics about the WordPress codebase. I started investigating and ran across this article at open Hub. Net

Of course, I am going to do a bit more reading to see some of the different definitions of lines of code. With that said, after reading the article below I drew two simple conclusions.

  1. Any code community that includes over 950,000 lines of code is not too simple.
  2. Exponential growth curves indicate rapid change. Rapid change is not always so simple.

From this perspective, WordPress is not simple.
