Remkus de Vries
|WordPress Origin Story||
Wanted to have a blog back in early 2004 and found WordPress. Played around with it for about three years and then turned a hobby into work late 2006. Started getting involved with the Community in 2007 and took over the admin side of things for everything WordPress in the Netherlands (forum, translations, releases etc).
Co-founded WordCamp Netherlands in 2009 and repeated that on a larger scale with WordCamp Europe in 2013.
Came for the software, ended up with a family™.
