To honor WordPress’s 20th anniversary David Bisset has invited four charming and entertinaing community members to talk about some highlights in it’s history. Primary topics include: how WordPress has made an open source for the general community, what proposal or feature of WordPress over the years didn’t get attention or appreciation it deserved, and what WordPress event has been the most noteworthy?
Just like other conversations – there is quite a few memory of about the community and forgotten WordPress features. Join us and you may recognize some of the things shared!
