WordPress is popular in higher ed for a lot of reasons, and being open source has to be near the top of the list. And that means that you — yes, you! — can contribute bug fixes and new features to the project. But actually showing up and contributing can be intimidating. How do you get started?
This episode features WPCampus community members Brian DeConinck and Joe McGill. Joe previously worked for Washington University in St. Louis, and now works with the WordPress development firm Human Made. In January, he spoke at WPCampus Online on the topic Showing up: learning how to make a contribution.
Joe joins us the show to talk more about contributing code back to WordPress, and contributing to the things we use and care about more generally.
