WordPress is a content management system (CMS) and a website creation software founded by Matthew Charles Mullenweg and Mike Little back in 2003.
WordPress Founders: Matt Mullenweg & Mike Little
The objective of WordPress was to provide a platform so that even a non-techie can build a website easily without the need of understanding programming languages.
There are two variations of WordPress, WordPress.org, and WordPress.com
- WordPress.org is open-source software, and it’s 100% free for anyone to download, edit, customize and use. It isn’t owned by any company instead the WordPress foundation to make sure it remains free forever and maintained by the community.
- WordPress.com is proprietary software owned and maintained by Automattic, the company founded by Matt Mullenweg, one of the founders of WordPress. It runs on a modified version of WordPress.org
However, WPfounders is a platform where the founders of successful WordPress businesses share their journeys, challenges, priceless advice and also talk about their personal life.
The purpose of this platform is to highlight the struggle that these individuals have to go through while building something which is beneficial for the entire WordPress community.
