What is a WordPress contributor day and why should I come?

Contributor day gives you a special opportunity to work together and learn from some of the best contributors in the community. Together you too can contribute to the awesome CMS that runs about 27% of all the websites on the web.  On this day you have a perfect chance to give something back to the community and you will definitely learn a lot in the process.

Everyone is welcome and you can contribute regardless of your skill level. You don’t have to be a developer or a designer to start contributing.  If you have never contributed before, this is a perfect time to get started. You will be guided by experienced contributors in a friendly and relaxed environment. So take the chance of taking both WordPress and yourself to the next level.

It’s really fun and rewarding and after a day of presentations you get a chance to learn by doing. You will also meet a lot of nice and interesting people to expand your network.

A lot of people think the contributor days are more rewarding than the main WordCamp event, both in terms of knowledge and networking.

In addition to the usual WordPress Contributor Day Sessions we also plan to  offer several 2-3 hour workshops on optimising your WordPress website (SEO / Marketing) and getting started with WordPress (how to setup and configure your own Website / Blog).

Come learn how WordPress is made and help make WordPress!

See you there!

The Contributor / Workshop Day will be held on Sunday, 23rd April, at Stockwerk Coworking Space, Pater-Schwartz-Gasse 11A, 1150 Vienna.  Times will be announced soon.
