March 20, 2021 — WordPress Internationalization (i18n) and localization (l10n) happen through the Polyglot Project, which is driven by a team of passionate volunteers who provide translations for a specific language.
i18n and l10n are important contributions to WordPress as an Open Source project. Having WordPress available in all languages makes it accessible to everyone.

May 10, 2020 — In a world increasingly run by software, failures can be caused by bugs.
Failure to find and fix bugs quickly has a financial, personal and reputational cost to an organisation. It can impact on product delivery time as well.
A large portion of developer’s time is spent in debugging.
However, when was the last time we worked on improving our debugging skills?
This is one of the rarely discussed topics.
This meetup talks about improving our debugging skills, that can help us make it simpler to quickly find and fix critical bugs, so that we can deliver to ever-shortening deadlines and boosts overall productivity.
This online free meetup will cover:
1. Common challenges and misconceptions of developers when debugging.
2. Thinking in the right direction for quick fixes.
3. Tips on debugging WordPress backend and front-end.
4. Can exploring WordPress core help in debugging?
5. Is manual debugging better?
6. Real world examples
Chandra and Imran will also share their experience and best practices, when debugging.
