As described in the Project Idea on the Page, WordPress uses a lot of ‘forms’ on their community sites (like WordCamp.org) for various purposes like applications, contact forms, post submissions, sign-up forms, surveys, etc. They currently use a combination of Poll daddy surveys and Jetpack forms (Commercial ones).
