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.
