WordPress Origin Story

I was working as a service industry delivery driver and wanted a career change, as a result I learned how to code in my spare time and used a coding boot-camp to bolster my qualifications to get a job as a software developer. Eventually I finally was able to get a job as a software and web developer. This was where I encountered WordPress fully as the company uses WordPress heavily. At first I didn’t know much about WordPress and after a about of year developing plugins, themes, and maintaining multiple WordPress sites I have grown to love WordPress. I rely heavily on and love the WordPress REST API!
