Are you curious about how to Make WordPress but you are unsure of where to start? You are not alone. The wealth of information on how to create with WordPress overshadows the first steps to make and contribute to the WordPress Open Source Project.

Join me for this Meetup. I will walk you through the steps to set up your tools to contribute. We will:

  1. Sign you up for the Make WordPress tools ( and Make Slack) that allow you to see the magic of how WordPress is made.
  2. Sign you up for your preferred Make team updates.

Work alongside me. Or watch.

WHAT YOU NEED: This session requires you to be nimble. You will need several browser tabs open. Bring your computer or tablet with as few tabs open as possible. It is a good idea to start this session signed into your most used email account.


The Zoom link will be sent from to the email you registered your Meetup account with.
