WordPress powers nearly 26% websites in the world. What started as a simple blog publishing software has now become an application framework that can be used to create personal websites, news portals, eCommerce stores, communities, forums, and almost any kind of website imaginable.
While the demand for WordPress-specific websites is growing with time, the need for professionals to help in creating WordPress websites is on the rise too. Consequently, there are hundreds of WordPress related jobs posted on freelancing platforms like freelancer.com, UpWork, Fiverr, etc. making it a lucrative profession for aspiring developers and freelancers.
WordPress Professionals in Pakistan Take Notice
WordPress users from all over the world organize local events and meetups in their own cities. These events are a great place for beginners to interact with other WordPress users and learn.
Muhammad Kashif, an experienced specialist in WordPress development, has already organized 12 WordPress Meetups in Lahore successfully.
The event is going to be hosted by TechHub Connect.
Attendees can connect with other industry professionals or just learn about how WordPress can make a difference in their lives.
WordPress Meetups are the starting point, subsequently leading to official WordPress events called WordCamps. These events are supported by the official WordPress foundation. The goal of the Meetup organizers in Pakistan is to pave the way for a large-scale WordCamp Pakistan event which is approved and scheduled for early 2017.
