It’s been more then ten years since the first release of WordPress. It was forked from b2 and they already need to deal with checking the code. Thousands of lines of code have been written causing a lot of great features WordPress has now.
In this presentation I talked about the fork of b2 in 2003 and about all the major features what got added in the last ten years. Showing how those features helped out making WordPress what it is today. Running on 21.2% of the web and still building new features.
This all to makes WordPress the best publishing tool that currently exists.
