Save the date! WP-CLI Hack Day on Friday, April 26th

We’re happy to announce the third 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 Hack Day! 🤓🎈

On 🕓 Friday, 26th April 2024 we’ll officially kick off the WP-CLI Hack Day at 🕗 Friday, 26th April 2024, 0800 UTC. From that point on, @schlessera, @swissspidy, and I will 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 🕓 Friday, 26th April 2024, 0900 UTC to Friday, 26th April 2024, 1000 UTC and then again between 🕓 Friday, 26th April 2024, 1500 UTC and Friday, 26th April 2024, 1600 UTC 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 🕕 Friday, 26th April 2024, 2200 UTC, 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 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! 👍 The official hashtag for the event is #hackwpcli 📣
