That’s a question i hear a lot these days. And i’ll borrow Mario Peshev nicely put explanation:
What is WordPress?
WordPress started as a blogging platform more than 10 years ago, and the active community grew it to be a platform that powers about 24% of the World Web. Nowadays WordPress is being used as a CMS, and even as an application platform. In a few months the WordPress Restful API will probably get in the WordPress Core, which would make it incredibly easy to run all sorts of applications – even mobile apps and ones not written in PHP – interacting with WordPress as a separate platform.
There are plenty of use cases for WordPress, which is what makes it one of the most powerful web platforms that has ever been built.
What Can You Do With WordPress?
There are lots of WordPress driven websites serving different needs. Some examples:
- small business website
- eCommerce store
- membership site
- Q&A site
- Real estate portal
In addition to building a website itself, it’s a great way to start any venture.
That being said, if you want to learn more about WordPress, go to their official site, follow Mario Peshev blog or twitter, search tutorials, watch videos, buy books, go to a wordcamp…the list goes one.
But if you don’t have the time to learn or what you want is make your own business grow, and need a fabulous work done in Web Publising with WordPress, you can contact 10up, one of the biggest WordPress centric agencies in the world.
