Bio

Someone once said: “Oh wow, you’re actually ARE a geek on heels!” I’m in love with logic, my brain goes faster than my mouth, so sometimes I talk gibberish. Laziness translated to effectiveness, I prefer to create live screencasts to explain a problem or a solution, rather than writing it down. Autodidact, open source lover, webdesign (CSS + HTML) since 1998, lately digging into PHP.

WordPress Origin Story

I had to dig deep to really find the correct year, but now I can tell you that I touched WordPress for the first time in 2007. I was used to building static pages with Dreamweaver. On and off I tried to work with WordPress, but at that time I wanted to create all kinds of things that would have required me to learn how to code with php. Stuff that required relational fields and such (and of which, at that time, I didn’t even know what it was called). Then I left that alone for a bunch of years, and only occasionally used it to create blogging sites.

In the meantime I was using CMS Made Simple™ as my go to Open Source CMS to create funky stuff with, because using Smarty was easier for me than “from scratch” PHP. I have dyscalculia, so coding is a nightmare for me anyway. But… When WordPress 5.x series came out, I came back to it. And the day I discovered I can create almost anything I want with custom fields (2019), and that I could immensely speed up my on the fly design / front end process with the Elementor Page builder, is the day I fell in love with WordPress again. <3

Now I am a very happy WordPress Community member, mostly active in the local Düsseldorf Community, and I can't believe I had forgotten how much fun being an active member of the Open Source community actually is! I'm glad I'm back.
