Contributor Day — Sunday July 23th

Whether you’ve never contributed to WordPress before, or if you’ve done so for years, you’re invited to WordCamp Boston Contributor day. This is your chance to learn out how to contribute from the experts, hang out with others who love to contribute, and push some of your own contributions — all in one (well, really less than one) day.

We’re planning a fun, active and intense day of learning, coding, testing, documentation and hanging out. WordPress experts and contributors will be present to help you get up to speed quickly with how to contribute to WordPress. Don’t know exactly what you want to do? No problem! Just show up and we’ll get you plugged into a team that needs your help. Not a coder? That’s okay too — there are plenty of non-dev ways to contribute to the WordPress community, including documentation and more.

Just bring your own laptop and we’ll take care of the rest
