WordPress development company in Phoenix.
Before we talk about WordPress development, let’s get some background on WordPress itself.
What is WordPress?
WordPress started as a free and open-source blogging system and has evolved into a fully adaptable content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. It’s installed on a web server and can be a part of an Internet hosting service. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system. It was released on May 27, 2003, by its founders, Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little, as a fork of b2/cafelog. The license under which WordPress software is released is the GPLv2 (or later) from the Free Software Foundation. Because WordPress is an open source project, there are thousands of developers all over the world contributing to the project by building plugins and widgets which only broadens the possibilities of what a site can become.
WordPress combines simplicity for users and publishers with under-the-hood complexity for developers. This makes it flexible while still being easy-to-use.
