Technology is best when it brings people together!
That’s what happened when Mike Little and Matt Mullenweg collaborated in 2003 to create what’s known as WordPress today. It started as a blog portal. Today, it’s one of the most popular Content Management System. The phenomenal success of WordPress was possible because of the contribution of developers from all over the world. They’ve come to build what’s now a highly successful CMS (Content Management System) platform. Statistics have shown that 17 percent of the top 1 million websites on the web are powered by WordPress and there are more than 68 million WordPress blogs worldwide.
Interesting as it may sound, every new WordPress release is named after a Jazz legend like Mingus Support Plugin in 2004 was named after Charles Mingus and Baker Speed Improvement Code Process Editor in 2009 was named after Chesney Henry “Chet” Baker.
WordPress has been here for over a decade now. Here’s my take on what makes it so awesome:
Flexible and Extensible
Customers come to us asking, “I want this functionality, and can you do it?” The answer most of the times is YES because WordPress comes with numerous plug-ins & widgets with enhanced functionality and extensibility. And there’s always a room for customization.
Ease of Use
WordPress’ meteoric rise in the web development arena is largely because it’s easy to use and user-friendly.
A number of templates are available to choose from to match your industry. These are easy to install and use.
WordPress provides an awesome blogging experience.
