by | Jun 3, 2023 | Meetup News | 0 comments

Learn how the WordPress open-source project works, how to join the community, and how to contribute. Even if you don’t know code!


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 shared 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.

She also shared more about how you don’t even need to know code to contribute.
