I am currently working for Adwoosh (based in US) and primarily work on web based projects, App development, and other IT related projects.
WordPress Origin Story
I was more inclined towards designing .net based sites and had been not interested in WordPress due to my fear about security issues. Over the period of time, I realized , WordPress is a Good platform . It’s easy to understand, there lot of support documentation and videos and saves a lot of time. There is minimal backend coding and you really can make it work the you want in less amount of time. As far as security concern goes, it is manageable if properly taken care of while designing the site.
