Contributing back to the open source projects we use can seem intimidating, especially if you're not sure where to start. In this talk, Jason Clarke (Associate Director at 10up, and former front-end developer) will talk about the benefits of contributing to open source projects and share specific, tactical steps for diving into contributing to code, documentation, and much more.

This Meetup is intended for web developers who work with WordPress and are interested in learning about theme and plugin development, core contribution, and hosting.

In an effort to accommodate different user types, we'll be alternating between general and developer focused sessions. Same format as before, but with focused topics and discussions.

If you are not a developer, we recommend you attend the General WordPress Meetup (http://www.meetup.com/Southern-Maine-WordPress-Meetup/events/qlwcnkysqbvb/).
