My name is Ilias Benetos! I was born in November 1987 on the island of Chios in Greece. I have Greek citizenship but at the same time, I am an American citizen. From a child, I love sports, games, gadgets, computers and everything related to that technology. At the age of 8, I got my first computer. I will never forget the joy I felt as soon as I got it in my hands (In 1 week it wasn’t working. Why? I dig on the system file folder and delete everything). That was the beginning of my “madness” with computers.
By finishing school I decided to make my dream come true and deal with Information Technology. I studied in the Department of Applied Informatics in Management and Economics of ATEI of Patra. In the last year of my studies, as part of my diploma thesis, I built a “browser game related to a mafia character”. That’s it!!! I now knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life…coding!!!
After completing my studies and my military service, I started working in a technical computer shop and I took over my first projects that mainly concerned websites and web applications as required by the customer. In the last 3 years, I have been working with New York-based companies remotely.
Wordpress is the ultimate cms to build a website, but for most customizations according to customer needs, we are continually improving and processing the WP source code. Here the themes and plugins come to life. I’ve used infinite plugins and themes in my client projects. Unfortunately, there are a lot of badly coded with missing standard features plugins/themes, and that always aroused me.
My passion and love for programming I have prompted me to create the name iBen. Build plugin and themes for WordPress for developers which they think like me.
I hope through my products I could help you solve the issues you encounter when implementing your own projects.
You will love my products because if you are a serious WordPress developer i’m thinking like you.
