Next Meetup

Virtual Contrib2Core [Developers]
WHAT WE DO Note: The activities in this meetup are best suited for intermediate/advanced WordPress developers. Join Paul Bearne (Senior Freelance WordPress Developer) for a virtual meetup using Google Hangouts, where we come together as a team with the aim of adding to and improving WordPess itself (contrib to core). This is a series of monthly events using YouTube live recording on Google Hangouts. A new hangout link is published in the comments shortly before each session. All registered attendees will also receive an email, just before the meetup, containing this link. Sessions are interactive - you will help craft the code and create your own core commits. As at the beginning of January 2018, we had submitted around 20 patches of which about half have so far made it into a release from this project. You do not need to have experience of core commits, just to be reasonably comfortable with code and willing to come along, learn and do. There is guidance all the way, with opportunities to help with documentation and research. You can even just lurk and listen! At each meetup, we are working on writing unit tests for the original functions file in WordPress - there are around 200 functions to keep us occupied! WHAT YOU WILL NEED If you are new to core development, you will need to install https://github.com/Varying-Vagrant-Vagrants/VVV or have a working deployment build of WordPess. IMPORTANT TO KNOW The file we are working on is: https://github.com/pbearne/contrib2core/blob/master/src/wp-includes/functions.php We will use this repo to swap code as we work: https://github.com/pbearne/contrib2core More reading: https://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/ This is a shared event with The Ottawa WordPress Group and the Kingston WordPress Group and is open to anyone, anywhere!

What we're about

The Toronto WordPress Group brings together WordPress enthusiasts of all types, whether you are a designer, programmer or end-user; beginner, intermediate, or advanced.

Starting with informal "pub social" Meetups in January 2010, we've grown through pubs, cafes, libraries, and office spaces. At our peak we were running meetups with ~80 attendees per session. We're now running a handful of different meetup series in spaces around Toronto, from Etobicoke to Scarborough.

The group is evolving, as is the meeting structure. With presentations on a wide range of WordPress related topics, and great discussion about all things WordPress, meetings are lively and interesting. Join us, and find out why WordPress is so popular!
