Find out How WordPress can Change Education with Mahangu Weerasinghe of Automattic

If you were at WordCamp Mumbai, there’s no chance that you escaped being mesmerised by Mahangu’s presentation skills. He’s coming to Pune to discuss Beyond the Blackboard: Building Education Products for South Asia. Whether you are an educator, learner, interested in the social and economic impact of education or education is just your business, he’ll help you see WordPress in a new light, as a simple but powerful educational tool!

Hailing from Colombo, Sri Lanka, Mahangu first found WordPress when he stumbled upon 0.70 in the dark recesses of #wordpress on Freenode. He has used and provided support for every major release of the software, and is excited about the impact the platform can have on South Asia.

Though once a high school English teacher, his desire to make online publishing more democratic led him to Automattic, where he now works as a Happiness Engineer. He sincerely believes that stellar support will play a pivotal role in helping WordPress power the next 24% of the web!
