August 11, 2020 — An introduction to the WordPress open source project. In this brief workshop with Courtney Patubo Kranzke and Cami Kaos from the WordPress Community team you’ll learn a little bit about the history of WordPress software, understand better how building open source software differs from building traditional “closed source” software, and learn what teams the WordPress project is divided into. With this, we hope you’ll glean a better understanding of how the WordPress project functions and where you might like to get involved.
May 11, 2019 — Feedback, given or received, can be a gift or a curse. Explore the subtle art of communicating feedback in a way that’s beneficial to both sides while also helping the overall health of the project you share. I’ll draw from examples in open source communities, collaborations, and Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest to help attendees understand how everyone benefits when feedback is given about products and projects instead of individuals. While we’re in a feedback mindset I’ll talk about how to share critical feedback about the folks we work with while remembering that the person on the other end of the internet is a human too.
