WordPress 16 birthday

Celebrated WordPress 16 Birthday on 27th May 2019

On this 27th May 2019, WordPress turned 16 years old. So, we decided to celebrate WordPress 16 birthday with full of joy and happiness. Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little released WordPress on 27th May 2003.

I would like to share WordPress updates with you all.WordPress is growing so fastest day by day and there are so many new updates in WordPress that are making it even better. Here are some:

What’s new in WordPress?

  • The platform’s focus is moving towards a more intuitive site-building experience. WordPress already leads the pack in terms of market share. And by improving WordPress’ site-building functionality, the core team aims to hold that market share against the rise of hosted website builders.
  • Some improvements to the WordPress Rest API. The WordPress Rest API helps developers create more feature-rich products by making it easier to send and pull data from your website. This update means developers will be able to more easily create applications using the platform as a framework.
  • Building custom themes becomes easier. In the past, you needed at least a simple development background to put together a WordPress theme. With Gutenberg, theme creation will become much more accessible thanks to blocks.
  • Page builder plugins might lose some relevance. There are a lot of fantastic page-builder tools that you can use with WordPress, some of which rival professional platforms. Gutenberg won’t be a match for them at first, but it might dissuade people from using them in the long run.

Birthday Celebration Day

We started this day with WordPress introduction to newbies and shared our experiences with WordPress. I also shared my WordPress journey with all of them that how WordPress changed my career. Then we celebrated this day with cutting the cake, some snacks and lots of fun. 😉
