Welcome to the official blog of the core development team for the WordPress open source project.

Here, we make WordPress core. Follow our progress with general updates, status reports, and the occasional code debate.

We’d love for you to help out.

Looking to file a bug?

It’s easy to create a ticket¬†on our bug tracker.

Want to contribute?

Get started quickly. We have some tickets marked as good first bugs for new contributors. There’s more on our reports page, like patches needing testing.

We also have a detailed handbook for contributors, complete with tutorials.

Weekly meetings

We use IRC for real-time communication. As contributors live all over the world, there are discussions happening at all hours of the day.

We have a project meeting every Wednesday at 20:00 UTC in the #wordpress-dev channel on chat.freenode.net. (Quick start: There’s a web interface.)

You can find meeting agendas on this blog. You’re welcome to join us or listen in.
