Granted, today’s headline is definitely a current event and while having the plugin available at the WordPress repository is a big step, it did bring to mind the past seven years of progress with The Venture Platform that led to this latest development.
It seems like it was only yesterday when the entire platform was just getting started:
We enjoyed steady and rapid growth between each major upgrade cycle. Within the last year, the specter of losing Net Neutrality helped fuel the largest cycle of improvements that helped lead to launching the event management component as a standalone, free WordPress plugin.
The WordPress Plugin Directory is the largest directory of free and open source WordPress plugins. With more than 70 million current WordPress users, it’s nice to know they all have direct access and can automatically install it right from their plugin admin panels.
Everyone on my team is excited to see where this new endeavor goes and to see how it supports our ongoing work with The Venture Platform.
