New Authors

Some new people will be posting to this blog as we add more people in positions of responsibility, just wanted to give some context.

  • Andy McIlwain (@andymci, Toronto ON, Canada) is going to be taking a lead role in helping with the meetupsMeetup Meetup groups are locally-organized groups that get together for face-to-face events on a regular basis (commonly once a month). Learn more about Meetups in our Meetup Organizer Handbook. program, as anyone who’s followed the team chats might have already figured.
  • Cami Kaos (@camikaos, Portland OR, USA) handles the billing/payments, contracty stuff, cameras, swag, etc for our support of WordCamps and meetups, and will start postly weekly updates so we can increase transparency about things are run (not to mention so folks can appreciate how much work goes into that support).
  • Rebecca Collins (@rebeccaAC12, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia) has been handling conference sponsorships for Automattic for more than a year, and while a bunch of those events are done as Automattic, some are done as WordPress. She’ll start coordinating the WordPress events via this team so that people will know where we’ll be, and so we can coordinate local volunteers for tables/booths at relevant events.

Welcome, Andy, Cami, and Rebecca!
