Hi, I'm Mike Little
I am the co-founder of WordPress, the website building software that powers more than 37% of the web. I am a software developer. I run training classes and have recently started a podcast.
I have many programming languages, many disciplines, and many years under my belt. You can read my nitty-gritty Curriculum Vitae online.
I co-founded WordPress, the website building software that now powers more than 37% of the web. I started it in 2003 with Matt Mullenweg. We went on to work with a small band of volunteer developers to build and improve the software. WordPress is now developed and supported by a huge worldwide community.
I now run Zed1. This is my WordPress specialist company providing web development, training, coaching, and consultancy services.
I am a published author. In 2005 I co-authored “Building Online Communities With Drupal, PhpBB, and WordPress“. I wrote the WordPress section of the book. I am also a technical editor. I have worked on a number of technical books for Wiley and Sons and other publishers.
I am passionate about what I do and the projects I work on. I have had a lifelong interest in free and open source software. I have worked with and contributed to several projects.
DJGPP, CVS, MYSQL, b2/cafelog and, of course, WordPress. I am particular about standards and “doing the right thing” and am a regular speaker at WordPress and code conferences.
