WordPress & Me
I started exploring WordPress in 2004 as a curious hobby. As I learned more about the platform, I began customizing themes and exploring plugins. Over time, I became more interested in the technical aspects of WordPress and started learning programming languages. I shared my WordPress experiences on my personal blog and gained a significant following in the community and started organizing WordPress meetups and conferences in Bangladesh. My work in the WordPress community led to me speaking at WordCamps around the world. I spent one crazy summer in the US, participating in 6 WordCamps, visiting 9 States and 13 cities in the process, starting from Boston and finishing in San Francisco. When I first attended and spoke at WordCamp Melbourne in 2011, I was the first Bangladeshi to ever do so. Tried to retire in 2018, then established a team of 150+ people in 2 Years called WPDeveloper. We developed hundreds of themes and plugins and released a few for free in the WordPress.org
I love WordCamps, appeared over 100 WordCamps globally.

Fueled by my passion for travel, I’ve experienced different cultures, made friends worldwide, and created lasting memories while gaining knowledge. And I’m thrilled to say I achieved my goal of visiting 50 countries with my Bangladeshi passport before turning 40. Let my journey inspire you to reach for the extraordinary #50Under40.
