Hello world!

Welcome to 20 years of WordPress. This is, appropriately, our first post. It’s a bit… meta, yes?

EVENT: WordPress 20 year anniversary

WordPress is the world’s most popular blogging platform and the world’s most popular Content Management System. This open-source software enables anyone with an internet connection and some means of hosting to publish… anything!

What began as a pain point with an existing blogging program turned into the most accessible means of publishing content anywhere.

Over twenty years ago Matt Mullenweg blogged about his concerns with the publishing platform he was using and mused about using b2/cafelog software as a starting point for an open-source publishing platform.

Another software developer and avid blogger, Mike Little commented that he would be interested in contributing to this kind of project and it was clear that by May 2003, Mike was in the thick of it.

Several months later on May 27, 2003, WordPress was released.

HAPPY 20th BIRTHDAY WORDPRESS!
