What is Wordpress
WordPress is a content management system for cutting-edge personal publications, with a focus on aesthetics, Web Standards and usability. WordPress was built by Matthew Mullenweg and Ryan Boren using PHP and MySQL, and is released under the GNU General Public License, thereby being both a free and open source software.
WordPress was created from the b2/Cafelog which no longer exists, along with Movable Type they’re the most popular weblogs platform. The main causes of its rapid growth are, among others, the type of license (open source), its ease of use and its features as content manager.
WordPress is also used as a platform for developing e-commerce sites, magazines, newspapers, portfolio, project management, directory, events and other content due to its extensibility through plugins, themes and PHP programming.
