This is Kunal Sharma. I’m a learner just like you, who would like to share his experience of learning WordPress. I’ll also try to provide you some approach on learning this platform.
Let us first start by knowing what actually is WordPress.
WordPress is a free and open-content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. To function, WordPress has to be installed on a web server, which would either be part of an Internet hosting service or a network hostin its own right.
A local computer may be used for single-user testing and learning purposes. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system. WordPress is used by 30.6% of the top 10 million websites as of April 2018.As such, WordPress is the most popular website management or blogging system in use on the Web, supporting more than 60 million websites.
Now in simple words, WordPress gives us a platform to build and design websites without much technical knowledge, reason why bloggers don’t even need technical support to maintain their blogs as it’s quite handy.
As a matter of fact, most things like html, css and php require quite a lot of time to expertise. But in the case of WordPress you don’t necessarily need to know any of these languages and you still can develop tons of unique websites. Moreover, once you start using WordPress, you’ll really find it difficult to stop because of its wide pool of available features, and how often do we look for things that are already developed and just need to be applied in a particular situation? Well WordPress provides you exactly that.
From my point of view as a beginner, WordPress has been one of the most simple and easiest skill that i have added to my collection and furthermore, now look forward to expertise it.
In the next post, we will learn how to install WordPress with the help of just few easy steps.
