    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.

    February 15, 2016 — In this session, Drew will be sharing insight into how a WordPress release happens, including an overview of all the moving parts, teams, organization, and execution. A lot of people have this idea that the core team is solely responsible for new versions of WordPress getting released, which couldn’t be further from the truth – it’s an intricate ballet of multiple contributor teams coming together and executing a broad vision.
    He will talk about how a release cycle is structured, how and where the decision-making happens, as well as all of the various contributors and teams that play their own part in a successful release. It’s very much opening the black box of how a release works.
