(UPDATED – May 23, 2018) WordPress—the most popular CMS platform is going to turn 15 this May 27, 2018. The WordPress enthusiasts from around the globe will be involved in the WordPress 15th Anniversary celebration. WordPress powers 30% of the websites and with that much of coverage across the world, you can be very much sure that it is going to be grand.
WordPress first came into existence back in the year 2003, having bifurcated in two versions: a self-hosted one—WordPress.org that is available for free, and a hosted one—WordPress.com that bundles additional services and support into its offering for ease of use. WordPress refers to both the non-hosted open source and hosted platform.
WordPress has been continually progressing and gaining more fans since it first started. WordPress has given everyone a platform to show the best in them. It is one of the many reasons to be involved in the WordPress 15th Anniversary Celebration this May.
You can check out the official WordPress 15th Anniversary website to see if there’s a party planned for your town. If there is, you can contact the party organizers and if not, then you can always start with small; pick a place to go and celebrate, keep it simple! Spread the word to your local meetup groups and get people to say they’ll come to celebrate. You can also request some special WordPress 15the anniversary swags as well (stay updated with the swag store for more swags).
In honor of the 15th anniversary, the WordPress team has added some special 15th-anniversary items in the swag store — you can use the offer code CELEBRATEWP15 to take 15% off this (and any other WordPress swag you buy), all the way through the end of 2018!
