M Asif Rahman, from Bangladesh, is the CEO of weDevs, a large WordPress Product company. He’s also the Founder of ARCom, a decade-old WordPress-focused media company. Asif is an active member of the WordPress community. He has been a speaker in more than 20 WordCamps till date and attended more than 100 WordCamps around the globe. He’s been into WordPress for more than 15 years now.
He was one of the amazing speakers at a panel discussion round at WordCamp Kathmandu 2019 along with two other personalities. At the panel discussion, M Asif provided marketing fundamentals to help everyone grow their WordPress business. Not only that, but the discussion also included their journey, their experience in this field, and more.
During this interview, we got to know his WordPress journey, his views, and opinions regarding different aspects of WordPress.
M Asif has his own opinion towards the future of WordPress. He states, “WordPress is very strong and Gutenberg is making WordPress more comfortable to the modern web. I think the future of WordPress will be more related to apps and products that people build with WordPress. Adaptation of Gutenberg will take time; more than one or two years. Not every blogger or writer is using Gutenberg every day. The code needs to be developed much more. We all need to work together in WordPress to be ready for Gutenberg. Also, education for Gutenberg needs to be promoted in order for everyone to adopt it. And with the Rest API and GraphQL, I think in future, all the theme developers, instead of building just a front-end based theme, they will provide a good experience in the backend as well. Overall, I think WordPress will be very strong; we’re already adopting the change. WordPress is not just a blogging platform; it is a platform for letting people create websites and design different products in WordPress.”
With the amazing personality he carries, we could see his years of experience in WordPress and his speaking skills pouring out during the interview. He’s an inspiration for all who want to start their WordPress careers.
