Up to this point, my relationship with WordPress has known many sides. I started as a WordPress.com blogger and then moved to WordPress.org. Step by step, while trying to customize my blog, I began to understand how flexible WordPress was. Besides HTML and CSS, I discovered that I was able to learn PHP by myself, by following WordPress tutorials and forum discussions. After a while of study and practice, I launched my freelance business and spent a few years building mostly WordPress websites for clients with different business types and from various parts of the world. Today, I handle product development for CaptainForm, a WordPress forms plugin launched in 2015.
I would like to walk you through the ups and downs of this journey, to share some of the insights that I’ve gathered along the way and, most of all, to express my deep passion for WordPress and for the beautiful things you can build with it.
