The Contributor Track

WordCamp Seattle 2014 Contributor Day

This year we’ll have a track on Sunday that’s dedicated to contributing back to the WordPress open-source project.

It’ll be similar to the Contributor Days we’ve done in past years, where people of all skills and experience levels get together in a casual environment to give something back to the WordPress community. We’ll be working in teams to improve WordPress’s documentation, code, support, official websites, and maybe a few other areas as well.

Everyone is welcome to come, even if you’ve never contributed before — especially if you’ve never contributed before! You don’t need any special skills, everyone has something they can do. We’ll have experienced contributors from various teams there to help you get started and answer any questions you have.

It’ll be going on all day on Sunday, so feel free to come and go as you please.

What to bring:

  • A laptop or tablet is the only thing you really need.
  • If you want to bring a power strip and extension cord that could come in handy, but we’ll have some already there too.
  • A pair of headphones, if you plan to subtitle videos.
  • If you plan to work on code, you can get a head start by setting up Varying Vagrant Vagrants and the WordPress Meta Environment for a local development environment.
