Following our latest post about the Wonderful Women of WordPress, we thought it would be fun to highlight some of the young bright minds in the WordPress web sphere.
Unlike many of their older colleges, many teenagers aren’t taken very seriously due to their age (we’ve all been there, am I right?) However, any WP enthusiasts can take a lesson from the guys on this list.
Not only are they knowledgeable about WordPress, but both of them managed to build businesses, connections and blogs that create solid income for them — things that many people three times their age still struggle to figure out and get right.
Even though Devesh is just shy of his twentieth birthday, he’s managed to build one of the top WordPress blogs — WP Kube. This site is creeping up on turning five and continues to provide quality information about all things WordPress related (yes, he started the blog when he was about 14).
I’ve had the privilege to work with Dev for over a year and have nothing but good things to say about him. His latest venture has been to create a new WordPress plugin called Coupine — a WordPress plugin for create and displaying coupons unlike ever before. It has yet to be released, but should hit the market soon.
You can see how the coupon will look just by visiting WP Kube’s Coupon area.
Going by his photo alone, most people wouldn’t expect Sam to be the WordPress powerhouse that he is. Although he was still a full-time student at the time (I believe is was high-school), Sam managed to land a writing spot on the Envato’s Tuts+ blog. A year or so after that, he launched wpContent — a blog full of guides, review, interviews and a ton more, all about WordPress.
In fact, he does so well that he had the chance to speak at WordCamp Manchester in 2014 about how he’s able to keep all the moving parts of a multi-author blog running smoothly while maintaining a high standard and format to wpContent.
Needless to say, he may be young but that has nothing to do with the fact that he’s an expert with experience that is going to take him a long way.
Wrapping It Up
Truth be told, it was hard to find more teenagers to add to this list. Not to say there aren’t more out there, but it was hard to track them down and learn more about the ones I could find. Either way, the fact is that there are young minds out there with experience, skill and talent that most of us only dream of.
People like Dev and Sam just further proof that we should never underestimate some based on their age. Even though I’m a few years old then these guys, I’ve still learned a lot from them. In fact, a lot of people have because many in the WordPress community have read many of the posts they’ve written or helps to produce.
