Must-Follow People From The WordPress Community
WordPress is a content management system that boosts the largest community worldwide and is enjoying constant growth and improvement. Whether you design or develop with WordPress, if you need to be more successful in the community and grow stronger in it, you will need its support. It will allow you to learn faster and grow your business more successfully. Personally, I have been involved in the WordPress open source community for several years already and I have gained invaluable knowledge from a range of people. It will be a great mistake not to connect with other individuals and learn from the wealth of their experience and expertise.
Having said that, I have come up with the idea to generate a list of influential and well-known people from the WordPress community.
