WordPress Origin Story

After somehow falling in with a bunch of Microsoft-centric web developers in the original dot-com boom and being forced to use proprietary tools like Visual Studio to build CMS’s from scratch, I was delighted to discover open-source software in the early 2000s and WordPress shortly thereafter. I created my first WordPress site in 2007 and haven’t looked back.
