Highlights The People Behind The Open Source Technology That Powers 28% Of The Web

Torque Magazine, the leading digital publication for WordPress news, today announced its Faces of WordPress campaign, a community-centered project that celebrates the people behind WordPress and the projects they create that collectively drive WordPress forward.

A WP Engine publication, Torque Magazine aims to showcase the collaborative environment that makes WordPress one of the most powerful open-source projects in the world. Today, WordPress powers 28 percent of the web with contributors around the globe writing code, translating the software, hosting WordCamps, reviewing themes, managing support forums and more. It is a reflection of the vibrancy and commitment of the community that has helped to and will continue to drive WordPress’ success.

“WordPress has quickly become the most widely adopted CMS, thanks to the many developers that volunteer time to make it a success,” said Mary Ellen Dugan, CMO, WP Engine. “Faces of WordPress will celebrate these important contributions by exploring the various projects and how they benefit the WordPress community more broadly.”

Launching at WordCamp Europe, Faces of WordPress builds on WP Engine’s corporate value of “Committed to Give Back.” As a leader in WordPress, WP Engine consistently gives back to the open-source community in a range of ways – through its editorially independent Torque Magazine, digital marketing publication Velocitize, sponsorships, funding, contributions, event support and more.
