Asif was a simple boy from Bangladesh. Back in 2004, when Asif just started University in Electrical and Telecommunication Engineering, he tried to make a site, as part of assignment, using Blogger. During that time he was introduced to WordPress. It changed his life, Asif found WordPress very easy. He started to make websites. Managing, all of the sites became difficult so he started hiring University friends but that also became unmanageable. Asif took an office and started his own company. Some of our websites worked super well, like The Tech Journal, it reached alexa rank 3000 within 1 year of inception. They kept working only in WordPress, built tons of plugins and theme, become attached with more important figure inside WordPress.

October 31, 2014 — This talk will present a number of arguments for why WordPress professionals ought to volunteer time to the project, arguments that will focus on practical and financial considerations rather than on moral ones. Boone Gorges will argue that the WordPress contributor pool is too concentrated, in a way that has the potential to do disservice to people who specialize in WordPress at the freelance and small-business level. Boone also outlines several concrete strategies for organizing one’s contributions in such a way as to minimize financial sacrifices.
