|WordPress Origin Story||
Since i’m ten years old, i have been a nerd, a geek, a wizz, a hacker. I’ve been helping people find elegant solutions to complex problems using their computers, tech gear, Web, and in doing so, have developped patience and a very natural way to “dumb things down” with humor and metaphors.
During these 9 years as a teacher, i realised that creating a learning and teaching community was essential: i installed a web server, a forum site, produces video tutorials and eventually, Moodle. Than I discovered the Graal in 2002: WordPress.
WordPress allowed me to create photography websites, video tutorials platform, e-commerce websites, communities platform with Buddypress, Event registration platfoem with EventEspresso. And that was just on my spare time.
