Michelle Frechette – Contributing to WordPress, the Open Source Project

As part of the WordPress community, many people contribute to the open-source project. And many of us may want to but are unsure about how to join in.

In this session, Michelle Frechette will share different opportunities to contribute to WordPress (both officially and to the community at large), as well as sharing how to make sure that any time you DO contribute, it counts toward your company’s involvement.

You’ll also learn more about how you don’t even need to know code to contribute.

Michelle Frechette is the Director of Community Engagement for StellarWP at Liquid Web.

Michelle was called “The busiest woman in WordPress.” by Matt Mullenweg at WCUS 2022.

In addition to her work at StellarWP, Michelle is the Podcast Barista at WPCoffeeTalk.com, cofounder of underrepresentedintech.com, creator of wpcareerpages.com, the president of the board for BigOrangeHeart.org, Director of Community Relations and contributor at PostStatus.com, co-host of the WPMotivate podcast, author, business coach, and a frequent organizer and speaker at WordPress events. Michelle lives outside of Rochester, NY where she’s an avid nature photographer. You can learn more about Michelle at MeetMichelle.online.
