Before we start with the definition, let's first post some facts about WordPress:
WordPress is a free open source blog tool and a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL… WordPress is used by more than 23.3% of the 10 million websites as of January 2015. WordPress is the most popular blog system used on the web, on more than 60 million websites… ”(Wikipedia)
What we learn from this is that many people can use WordPress, without being PHP experts, and since it is open source, anyone with some basic internet knowledge can use WordPress to build websites. But it does not qualify one as a WordPress developer.
So what is a WordPress developer?
