I am Utsav Singh Rathour. A WordPress enthusiast. While that would complete my introduction more or less, I have to fill in this space, so I will take liberty and write a little something about me.
While I first started creating web pages, MS FrontPage and Geocities were the in-thing. Tables were how you formed layout and Flash not JS was the go-to tool for banners and any kind of animation (ahh! the good old days). For many of you who do not know what they are, yes I have been for so long in this field. Also you couldn’t go to Google for help. Why? Because it didn’t exist. Now just so you do not start imagining how old I might look, I will add my photo somewhere here. 🙂
After that brief history lesson on web, let’s get to the present. Right now I run a Digital Agency called Code Pixelz Media based in Lalitpur ( “Kathmandu” for people outside Nepal 😉 ) We are a WordPress powered company. Which means all websites we work on are powered by WordPress and even the mobile apps that we build are powered by WordPress. Code Pixelz is a team of around 17 people and you can talk to anyone of them and they will try and turn any kind of discussion into a WordPress focused discussion. That is how much we love WordPress here. Under the same company we have a few products that we run.
Apart from that, I am also a certified Codeable Expert, which again is more or less like Tinder for WordPress. The Experts are hand-picked and selected after different level of tests, so you know you are in safe hands. I also believe in giving back to the community that has helped us a lot. Which is why I try and contribute as much as I can to the WordPress community here in Nepal and globally as well. I am a WordCamp organizer and have also spoken at many WordCamp events.
I am a Theme Review Team Key Reviewer, which means I help in checking whether or not themes that are submitted to WordPress.org meet the standards or not. I have helped translate WordPress to Nepali, I also have themes and plugins on the repository. One of our theme “Resortica Lite” powers over 10,000 websites alone. 🙂
