Mahangu is an Automattician hailing from Colombo, Sri Lanka, Mahangu first found WordPress when he stumbled upon 0.70 in the dark recesses of #wordpress on Freenode. He has used and provided support for every major release of the software, and is excited about the impact the platform can have on South Asia.
Though once a high school English teacher, his desire to make online publishing more democratic led him to Automattic, where he now works as a Happiness Engineer. He sincerely believes that stellar support will play a pivotal role in helping WordPress power the next 27% of the web!
Mahangu is an experienced speaker, and has spoken at several WordCamps, including WordCamp Pune 2015, WordCamp Mumbai 2016, WordCamp Singapore 2016, and WordCamp Kathmandu 2016.
