WordPress Origin Story

I was introduced to WordPress during my first job in April 2014. our company website was built on WordPress.org and manager by an Agency. It was not viable to contact the agency for minor changes every day, so my manager asked to me learn WordPress. It was only a classic editor at that point of time and enjoyed publishing a different blog post. 
It was just a glimpse of WordPress, my actual journey in January 2019 Ahmedabad WordPress Meetup. During the meetup, I heard from meet-up speaker Alkesh Miyani that the developers who contributed the most in wp 5.0 are from Bangladesh after Bharat. Coming from Non-IT background, it was really shocking for me to know that WordPress.org is an open-source (not one’s monopoly, it is made by many volunteers) and free (not just some basic features are free and rest are paid, but it is completely free). This incident motivates me to record a podcast on “contribution of Bharat and Bangladesh in WordPress” and upload it to YouTube. 
After this incident, I started my personal website (kevinkovadia dot in), a multilingual blog (alakh dot co dot in) and some freelancing work using WordPress dot org. Till now, I enjoyed attending WordPress meet-ups in Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Surat. It was a great experience to attend WordCamp Pune 2019 and WordPress Nagpur 2019. I got a chance to give a presentation as a speaker on “Digital Marketing using WordPress” at WordPress Meetup Vadodara in July 2019.
