I have been using WordPress ever since Version 2.8 and have played with it on and off till I got into it completely since I started my own Web Development agency.
It has been a long journey and I can say for sure that the WordPress community is the best Open Source Community I have seen and experienced to date.
As it is very easy for anyone to use WordPress our community is varied and has people from all types of professions.
For our party, we had developers, bloggers, social influencers, book publishers, journalists, game developers, startup founders and students.
Here are some pics from the event.
