WordPress and Drupal are two common open-source Content Management Systems. By open source I mean they are free to download and use, and they are powered by PHP and MySQL on the back-end. These systems are constantly evolving and being improved upon by a community of developers.
WordPress was started way back in the dark ages(2003) by Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little and has come a long way since it’s early humble beginnings. The latest version of WordPress as of this blog is 4.7 and this what you are reading now is being run on the latest WordPress (or WP).
