One of our goals for the Gift of Open Source this year is to lower the barrier for contributing to open source projects for new contributors. The Pantheon Community team has partnered with AmyJune Hineline (@volkswagenchick) of Kanopi who offered to run some workshops during Gift of Open Source. AmyJune speaks at a LOT of community events in the WordPress and Drupal spaces with a main focus on making participation in open source accessible to everyone. AmyJune will be presenting throughout Gift of Open Source using training materials aimed to help those that are new to contribution, non-coders, or not quite comfortable jumping in alone.
The second two workshops in this series are scheduled Monday December 7 at 12 and 2 PM PST. There will be a short demo and talk component with LOTS of time scheduled for Q&A. Bring your questions! If you cannot attend live, never fear! These will be recorded and we will have those recordings available for those that would like them. If you have questions you’d like answered during the live event, you can leave a reply to this forum post or send me a DM.
Coming up first from 12-1 PM PST , AmyJune will be talking about WordPress Community Contributions . Check out her description below and join us on Monday at this link (no registration necessary).
The WordPress community is diverse. With over 30% of the web running on its software, the community relies on all forms of contributions. Code is important and so are all the other parts. Let’s take a walk through the many avenues of how to contribute back to the WordPress project.
The second workshop from 2-3 PM PST covers WordPress Trac Queue 101 . The workshop description is posted below. Join us Monday at 2 PM PST using this link (no registration necessary).
The WordPress community believes in democratizing its software in the form of patches and documentation. Learn how to navigate the WordPress trac queue, use custom queries, and more.
