One thing I really wanted to do after I come to Thailand was to have WordPress meet-ups. And it happened 🙂
Siobhan is a writer, who works at Audrey Capital, which is an angel investment and research company created by Matt Mullenweg. I had seen her speech in WordCamp Sanfrancisco 2013 on WordPress.tv and never thought I was meeting her in Bangkok 🙂
Here’s the video.
Here are other resources about her.
The talk title was “Get involved in WordPress”, was about how to contribute to WordPress and here’s a list of hows (I made memo of the talk but couldn’t write them all so I researched by myself too. It’s a bit different from Siobhan’s talk.)
- Read WordPress › Make WordPress Core « WordPress Development Updates and find something interesting.
- WordPress › Make WordPress UI « A Better User Experience is good for designers and for those who want to contribute through using new features and report things.
- iOS/Android/BlackBerry App developers, WordPress › Make WordPress Mobile is waiting for you.
- WordPress › Make WordPress Accessible « Equal Access For All, which I heard of for the first time is also important.
- Translating WordPress to your language is one of the way you can get involved even if you’re not a programmer.
- Documentation will help many people.
- Codex is something people including me are always looking at.
- Handbooks are the new documentations. There are two kinds of handbooks, for Developers and for Contributors.
- Inline Documentations are docs in the core files. It’s a nice way of getting involved for you who understand code if you read, but maybe it’s difficult to write patches with codes. Inline documentations will not only be just inside the core files but also will be extracted from core to new website.
- Somebody wants to turn wordpress.org web site into responsive?
- And off course the core. It maybe fun to look at WordPress core components because there you can choose topic you want to try.
- It’s also nice to see Bug Reports « Make WordPress Core. They have links to tickets which “Needs patch, but has none”, “Has Patch and Needs Testing ” and so on.
And here are 2 more links which are good for new contributors and designers.
