We Love WordPress
We love WordPress. Yes, we do! I made my first WordPress website back in 2004. Since then (and 4.500 websites later), my deep love for WordPress has grown stronger. The platform now is more mature, more interactive and has adopted all state-of-the-art demands of CMS standards.
This amazing content management system (CMS) manages the creation and modification of digital content. Also, it can easily support multiple users in a collaborative environment. From the very beginning, it included Web-based publishing, format management, history editing, and version control, indexing, search, and retrieval. How not to love it?
WordCamp Athens is Back
The WordCamp Athens organization team announced that the 2019 event will be held at Athens Concert Hall (Megaro Athinon), from May 18 – 19. The previous WordCamp Athens 2017 was a tremendous success with nearly 600 attendees, a world-class speaker lineup, and a strong local community of volunteers.
