Monks Celebrated WordPress 15th Anniversary @ Monastery

WordPress 15th Anniversary-WebbyMonks

Hola! WordPress has become 15 years older and one more year of awesomeness we shared and cherished together. WordPress has made our life a lot easier especially when it comes to creating and managing a powerful website, some blogs or any app. And there is no wonder that today it powers 30% of the web on Internet.

It’s the celebration time at Monastery and Monks celebrated WordPress 15TH anniversary with expert teammates.

Monks gathered at the Monastery in the morning at 10:00 AM and a quiz was hosted for WordPress enthusiasts. Multiple questions were asked, and the winners were rewarded with chocolates and goodies. Everyone participated and showed their interest and long association with WordPress and the incredible open source community.

Everyone shared their experiences of WordPress along with their signatures, sketches and arts on the paperboard placed at the corner of the hall at monastery. Monks clicked group selfies and other celebration pictures. They cheered and chanted WordPress loudly. We have prepared a beautiful and delicious cake, and the cake cutting ceremony is done by the youngest team member, which was served to all.

At the end, everyone shouted out loud- ‘WordPress Forever’.


The Long Way

WordPress has come a long way- many ups and downs and yet it has come stronger and better, each time. Matt and Mike both has seen a lot while building this awesome open source platform.

“I am thankful to Mike for helping make WordPress a reality, many dedicated folks in the years since, and to all of you who are dreaming up the next 15 years.”

Recently, the most awaited open source project, Gutenberg faced patent issues by Facebook for using React. At that time, open source community decided to go with Vue.js in creating their most awaited project-Gutenberg. However, Facebook has dropped the patent clause Matt has written to them. We applaud Facebook for making this move.

We all know that the best part of WordPress is that it emphasizes on simplicity, accessibility, performance, security, and ease of use. It’s an open source platform and always will be! The WordPress contributors work around the globe and have dedicated countless hours to build this amazing software that democratizes publishing. Monks are happy to associate themselves with WordPress and delivers compelling projects to our agency-partners worldwide.


Monks & WordPress

Monks love WordPress and we chant WordPress more often than anyone else in the digital world. We’re glad to present ourselves as a WordPress expert.

However, we’re excited about the Gutenberg, which is going to release with WordPress 5.0. React is the JavaScript library with which Gutenberg is building up.

We have tested beta version of Gutenberg and has shared our experience with our audience. Undoubtedly, it is going to transform the editing experience and user experience like no others. Our life will become much more easy, efficient and beautiful.

We help our agency partners in creating beautiful and fully-functional WordPress websites. If you need help in creating a website or customizing WordPress as per your need, feel free to contact us and one of the Monks will revert you back in 24-48 hours as earliest it is possible.

Let’s create awesome web together.
