Let’s get to know Cristiano Zanca

That’s quite an introduction, Stefano! We would love to get to know Cristiano even better. That’s why we asked him some questions about his work and his passion for WordPress:

Hi, Cristiano! What do you do?

I’m a WordPress / WooCommerce extension plugin Developer and a WordPress eCommerce Developer/Maintainer.

Why do you think that you got nominated?

I’m involved in international WordPress Support as the Italian liaison, and I’m proud to be part of the fantastic WordPress community. Indeed, I do many things in the community, and I’m happy that I got nominated!

Why did you start contributing? Could you share your first contribution with us?

I started contributing in 2015, organizing the first WordPress meetup in Torino and the first Contributor Day in Milano, Italy. There I met Andrea Gandino, who activated the Italian Support Forum, and in agreement with him, I started taking care of it.

That would be Sergey Biryukov. Come on! Please Take a look at his profile! He is one of the most influential people in the worldwide WordPress Community.
