We’re trying to get a quick headcount for Sunday, please fill out this form if you’re planning to attend on Sunday:
If you’re not planning to attend, you should! No matter what your experience level, you can help WordPress improve. More details about Contribution Sunday here:
We’re excited about Contribution Day on Sunday where we all pitch in to give back to WordPress. After all, it’s done so much for us! And don’t be fooled for one minute thinking that only developers can contribute! There are so many ways to give back to WordPress and the community that it will make your head spin. So we hope that no matter who you are, and what your experience with WordPress is, that you’ll consider pitching in and helping move things forward.
Whether you’re a designer, developer, systems or support specialist, or writer, there’s a way for you to contribute:
- If you’re a programmer, contribute code directly to core*
- Write or update WordPress documentation
- Design wireframes for new features (or ones you think could be improved)
- Help out with your knowledge of accessibility or other relevant standards
- Answer questions on the WordPress.org forums
- Work on the wordpress.org website itself, including the plugin and theme repositories
People who come to Contributor Day will be 1000% focused on contributing to or learning to contribute to the WordPress project — although we have fun, this is a working event. If you’ve been looking for an opening to add your contribution to WordPress, this is the perfect opportunity!
* CODE CONTRIBUTORS
If you’re planning on helping out with WordPress core code (writing patches, testing bugs on trunk, etc), then you’ll need to get set up with a few things. To save time on the day, we strongly recommend that you set WordPress up locally on your laptop. You’ll need to install a local web server and check out a copy of WordPress from Subversion. Hint: Using Desktop Server (from our sponsor SeverPress) makes the first part really easy
It’s time for us to finalize our t-shirt order for WCLAX, so please log in and make sure you’ve correctly indicated your T-Shirt preference. Log in and change that radio button now or forever hold your peace.
