The last few couple of weeks proved quite fantastic for us at WPCouple and brought some great news. Be it Matt Mullenweg tweeting about WPCouple or hosting the largest ever giveaway in the history of WordPress ;WPCouple has managed to find a suitable fit in the WordPress community in very less time. We’ve promised to discuss everything that couples well with WordPress and today we have some inside scoop from our very own Chris Lema.
So far, 2016 has been a hip-hop year for WordPress because our community has several reasons to rejuvenate and rejoice. A few days ago, WooCommerce completed its first year after being acquired by Automattic, WordPress turned thirteen so, it is a teenager now, and once again we’re here to celebrate another great cause. But this time, it’s a double treat. The big news is:
The much-anticipated acronym a11y for accessibility has been in debate for quite some time in the WordPress space. It’s been more than a decade since this CMS has focused on democratizing content, and today more people have built their sites on open source scripts than ever before in the history of the web. With a 26.4% share of the global web comes great responsibility. And from here the concept of accessibility stepped in.
Probably, it would have been the same summers of May last year when Matt Mullenweg and his team at Automattic were preparing to shake the pillars of the WordPress community. The news of WooThemes being acquired by Automattic spread like a fire, and it came as a shock for some but a surprise for many.
