WordPress: It’s Made of People!

Every open-source project is built on a community of passionate users and contributors, and WordPress is no exception. But many would-be contributors aren’t sure where to start, or even if they’re qualified to try. Every one of our hundreds of contributors started as an ordinary WordPress fan who was driven to give something back to the project. In this session, I’ll introduce you to some of the ways you can get involved with the community no matter what your interests or skills. You’ll hear the stories of some of the WordPress community’s stars (and hidden gems), and get concrete tips on how to develop your skills to contribute more in the future.

Getting involved with the community is the best way I know to increase your WP skills, grow your network, and give something back to the WP world. This session is intended for anyone who knows and loves WordPress, but who isn’t sure how to take the next step.
