#WPLDN Event Details

All WordPress London Meetup events are free of charge, designed to be accessible and inclusive for all and promote a positive and safe environment for attendees, volunteers and organisers.  By attending an event you agree to comply with the #WPLDN Code of Conduct.

DESCRIPTION:

Whether you’ve never contributed to WordPress (http://make.wordpress.org/) before, or if you’ve done so for years, you’re invited to the first WPLDN All Dayer a WordPress Contributor Day. This is your chance to learn how to contribute, hang out with others who love to contribute, and push some of your own contributions — all in one day.

It will be a day of fun, active day of learning, supporting, coding, testing, documentation and hanging out. Members from different teams including core, documentation and themes will be present to help you get up to speed with how you can contribute to WordPress.

Don’t know exactly what you want to do? No problem! Just show up and we’ll help you find a team that suits you. .

Not a coder?

That’s okay too, you do not need to be a developer to be contributing back to WordPress. There are plenty of non-code ways to contribute to the WordPress community, including documentation, testing, support and polyglots. .

To keep ourselves fuelled, we are putting on lunch, snacks and brews during the day.

Be prepared:

Teams:

Contributions to WordPress are split into different teams. A list of the teams can be found at https://make.wordpress.org/ Please review the different teams ahead of the event and see which ones interest you

If you are unsure of which team you would like to join that is completely fine, there will be people on the day who can help discuss what it is that you are looking to help with.

If you would like to join multiple teams, that is also not a problem. During the day you will be free to switch between teams as you want.

Set up ahead of time:

To ensure that we maximise the day, we recommend that you have the following downloaded and installed on the day. If you have any issues, don’t worry there will be support on the day to help get you set up.
