WordPress is now a teenager!

Thirteen years ago in 2003, the first ever version of WordPress appeared, thanks to collaborative efforts of Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little. It was forked from b2/cafelog.

Over the past 13 years from being regarded as mainly just a blogging software, it now powers over 26% of the web.

Today, our favourite CMS, turns a teenager and we celebrated it’s birthday with a special cake. The cake cutting honours went to Vaishali, Divyaraj and Dhaval, the youngest rtCampers around.

Fun Fact: Vaishali and Dhaval were of age 10 and Divyaraj was only 8 years old when WordPress was first released!

And that’s all of us posing for a group selfie.
