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.
