WordPress Testimonials

After being a strong advocate for custom built sites, I discovered WordPress 3.0 and my life as a developer changed completely. Now I work at one of the most awesome companies in the WordPress space (WooThemes) and I’m involved in organising local community events and WordCamps for Cape Town. The best part about it? I absolutely love what I do!

I’ve been working with WordPress since the early days, and it’s been fantastic to see it grow into a mature development platform. I’ve used it in 2 different companies for client work, and now at WooThemes for building Plugins and Themes. It’s my bread and butter and it’s allowed me to see other countries, work with some fantastic people and have a lot of fun!

WordPress is what got me interested in development though its openness and the easy access it gave me in managing and tinkering with my site, when the majority of developers I had spoken to were still pushing static sites. Today I have a successful business because of it and work in a dynamic development team handling far more than just WordPress projects, but WordPress is still central to our work and definitely a massive contributor to our clients happiness.
