Since WordPress was released in 2003 and subsequently licensed as free open source software under GNU GPL, it has been continuously developed by a voluntary community into this powerful and efficient platform, which today serves almost a third of all websites.
Evolving from its roots as a blogging platform, WordPress expanded to a full grown Content-Management-System. The flexibility and power of the built-in features, the Plugin architecture and its rich set of APIs, provides a capable platform for powerful and efficient Web Development.
The future is awesome!

I live in a passionate balance of a creative life and the unbound fascination for dynamic web development.
Building websites and applications with growth in mind, the WordPress plugins architecture gives an efficient solution to separate independent features into their own maintainable modules.
Plugins extend WordPress core functionality. They can be extensively customized to implement your personal requirements, or can be used to share reusable features across multiple sites.

The Theme is the main component of a WordPress website. It can be universal and multipurpose or developed to fulfill the individual requirements of a specific website.
REST API Development
This opens exciting ways for dynamic frontend editing and interaction with the WordPress backend, and ultimately paves the way for application development on top of WordPress.
Gutenberg is the new revolutionizing way of using WordPress. It modernizes the entire publishing experience, the editor presents the content as seen on the frontend and it reacts in real time.
Gutenberg introduced a powerful and expressive toolkit to interact with WordPress data and build react-driven modern flexible and beautiful user interfaces that seamlessly connect with WordPress.
Gutenberg is more than just the editor. Taking its libraries to the frontend opens up opportunities for endless creativity.
Interactive maps with Leaflet
Integrating geographic data and information into a website offers a wide range of opportunities.

To extend WordPress with multilingual features, my plugins of choice are:
