The Genius of WordPress (and why it’s doomed)
Jason Gowans

Just to be clear, the admin portal of WordPress core isn’t static. Calypso is external application from the actual core code that runs WordPress.

At this moment, WordPress itself has not transitioned (yet) to being ran on Node/React. But there is quite a bit of backbone powering the admin area.
