You will be using PHP to build WordPress sites primarily but development as come a long way since the original Treehouse videos. There is a codebase for JavaScript use with WordPress since Gutenburg plugins have come to the fore. You now create content via Gutenburg blocks rather than the classic editor.

Research Gutenburg to learn more about that. Try also searching things like Joomlas and Blogspot for alternatives to Wordpress :-)
