About What is the BaapWP Project?

The Name

Baap Baap Hota HaiBaap in Hindi literally means father. That’s where the nickname Bapu for Mahatma Gandhi comes from; he’s the father of the nation.

However, culturally baap has evolved into an adjective that means awesome or great, as in “She’s such a baap WordPress developer!”. That’s kind of similar to the western phrase “Who’s your daddy?”. 

So, the name stands for the chief goal of the project: helping WordPress developers become awesome in every sense.
