I started with PHP in around 2000 and found WordPress in around 2003. It was cool. I continued with it – pretty much tinkering and figuring out how things worked – and got more serious with it in later years after custom post types became a reality. By that time, WordPress had been a great success for a long time, so there wasn’t a huge need for volunteers. I just continued doing my own thing. When ClassicPress was created in mid 2018, I was excited by the guiding principles of the project. A lot of people were. And, there was a real need to get all hands on deck. I decided to get involved.
