    Zachary Skaggs: Codeless Contribution – Making WordPress Better as a non-Developer

    WordCamp Atlanta 2016Speaker: Zachary Skaggs

    April 4, 2016 — In 2014 Matt Mullenweg coined the phrase “Five for the Future” when asking those who make their living on the WordPress platform to give back to the WordPress community in some way by donating 5% of their time to the project. It’s an awesome goal, but can be intimidating and seem out of reach for a majority of WordPress users (especially non-developers). Here we will discuss many ways to leave a positive mark on the future of WordPress without writing a single line of code. From beginner to pro, ANYONE can contribute to WordPress with minimal effort if they know where to look.

    Jenny Wong: Sharing Knowledge

    WordCamp Cape Town 2015Speaker: Jenny Wong

    February 15, 2016 — The open source community works because of the amount of knowledge that is shared between people. Although everyone has knowledge and experiences to share, many do not feel they have anything worthy of saying.
    In this talk, you will learn that everyone has something to share, how to generate talk topics based on conversations you have every day with your peers, and discuss the different methods of sharing – not all of it is on a stage.
    We will also review the impact of the share mentality and how it is helpful even for your business.

  • Morgan Estes: Scratching an Itch - Taking the First Step to Becoming a WordPress Contributor

    Morgan Estes: Scratching an Itch – Taking the First Step to Becoming a WordPress Contributor

    WordCamp US 2015Speaker: Morgan Estes

    December 12, 2015 — was a mild-mannered developer until that fateful day: the day I submitted my first patch to WordPress. Although I didn’t realize it at the time, it was that moment that would begin to change the way I thought about development, community, and what it meant to be a contributor to an Open Source project.

    My contributions to WordPress have taken the form of talks, patches, code reviews, and documentation, but they’ve nearly all started in the same place: solving a problem that I (or someone close to me) had at the time. Together we’ll learn some ways for you to find a way to become a contributor and, just maybe, help scratch someone else’s itch at the same time.
