WP-CLI Hack Day

We’re currently planning the first ever WP-CLIWP-CLI WP-CLI is the Command Line Interface for WordPress, used to do administrative and development tasks in a programmatic way. The project page is http://wp-cli.org/ https://make.wordpress.org/cli/ Hack Day! 🤓🎈

On 🗓 Friday, 20th July 2018 we’ll officially kick off the WP-CLI Hack Day at 🕗 08:00 CEST. From that point on, I’ll be generally available in Slack #cli channel and on the GitHub wp-cli organization to onboard new contributors, help people pick issues to work on and remove hurdles that keep them from finishing their PRs. This will continue more or less without interruption during the entire event.

From 🕓 16:00-18:00 CEST we’ll have an open video chat that everyone can join, where we can discuss remaining issues live and chat about the progress we’ve made. This extended video chat session will then conclude the event. Shortly after 🕕 18:00 CEST, I will post a make/cli blog post about the progress we were able to make during the allotted time frame.

The 🎯 goal for this first WP-CLI Hack Day is both simple and ambitious:

Finish the day with 2️⃣0️⃣ pull requests that have been merged during the event ❗️

Everyone is welcome to participate! This event is supposed to be fun and inspiring, and we expect people to help each other make progress along the way.


Let’s make this happen! 👍

Update: the official hashtag for the event is #hackwpcli 📣

Note on times:

The times are in CEST timezone to fit my schedule. ( ⇒ See time range and copy into calendar )

I’m fully aware this is not ideal for everyone around the globe. Hopefully, this first try at such an event will be a big success, and we’ll try it again with more helpers and an extended time zone at a later date.
