WordUp November Meetup: Contribution Special


The WordPress community thrives because thousands of people contribute to the project. This WordUp we'll be exploring how you can contribute - there's lots more to it than coding.

Whether you're a developer, project manager, marketer, linguistics expert or someone that just loves using WordPress, there are hundreds of ways you can contribute. A lot can come out of contributing: future collaboration on projects, learning new skills, finding business opportunities and of course a general warm fuzzy feeling of giving back!

We'll hear from three speakers covering the following areas: a general introduction to the different ways of contributing, core development, and marketing. We'll aim to have some practical sessions too, where fellow WordPressers will show you how to access tools and resources to help you contribute.

We'll be returning to the fantastic Platform 9, and pizza and drinks will be provided by Pragmatic.

Please ring up to floor 21 on the buzzer directly outside the venue, and someone will let you in. Once inside the building, take the elevator to floor 6.
