Dave Martin: Contributing to WordPress Core – A Getting Started Primer


December 7, 2012

Thinking about contributing to core, but don’t know where to start? Millions of people use WordPress every day. Contributing patches can be exhilarating, but also a tad intimidating as you’re starting out. At the end of this session you’ll have all the knowledge you need to begin contributing. We’ll cover getting a local install of trunk for development, as well as writing and applying patches. We’ll look at navigating Trac, where to get answers to questions you may have, and the dynamics of the core community.
