The first time a WordPress version of CiviCRM was available it was version 4.1 back in February 2012. It has now been more than 5 years, and I thought it would be nice to outline what has happened since WordPress became available as a CMS option for CiviCRM.
Last year in February we started a series of CiviNYC work days. It consists of an event where we work and learn from each other for an afternoon, usually around 4 hours. Here's what it looks like.
Not too shabby!!!
Everyone who attended appreciated the opportunity to be in a room with other community members to talk through issues and hear about the work that others are doing. We had a good mix of developers and administrative end-users that ensured everyone had someone to bounce their ideas off of.

I had fallen into technology almost by accident. As someone who enjoys delivering solutions I often find myself in conversations with people who are trying to build software infrastructures. It spawned a curiosity of technology puzzles. This brought me to Open Source software and I was soon building and configuring WordPress websites, and creating a workspace that allowed me to collaborate with the larger software communities. I have benefited from using open source software and I want to give back.
