We’re firm believers that the WordPress community are the driving force behind WordPress’ steady, enduring growth and the fact it is now powering over 28% of the internet. 1000s of volunteers dedicate their time and expertise to developing, testing and distributing WordPress updates, themes, plugins and community events, and we’re delighted to see that Torque have created a hub to shine a spotlight on some of these community members.
The WordPress online magazine have recently launched the ‘Faces of WordPress‘ site, which highlights members of the WordPress community, from developers to security experts, educators and more. Sharing insight into both the WordPress projects and the people behind them, Faces of WordPress is a must-visit site for all those engaged with the community.
In their launch post, Torque discussed their thought process behind the site:
In an effort to humanize WordPress and spotlight some of the key projects that are shaping the future of the CMS, Faces of WordPress underscores the importance of collaborative development by sharing different stories from individual contributors around the community.
Faces of WordPress will bring attention to the different projects that make WordPress successful today and will drive its success in the future – from the REST API and WP-CLI, to WordCamps, Polyglots, and beyond. Learn more about the projects that improve WordPress possible and the people who make it possible.
So next time you’re curious about the developers behind that invaluable WordPress plugin that makes your website that little bit better, don’t forget to visit Faces of WordPress to learn more about the people behind the projects.
