WordCamp US 2022 is right around the corner and so is Contributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/.!

Now, we’d like to hear your ideas! What kind of tasks should we focus on?
You can look at what we planned for WordCamp Europe’s Contributor Day earlier this year for inspiration. ✨ We’d especially like to hear Deputies Community Program Supporters (formerly Deputies) are a team of people worldwide who review WordCamp and Meetup applications, interview lead organizers, and keep things moving at WordCamp Central. Find more about program supporters in our Program Supporter Handbook.’ ideas for what activities first-time contributors can take part in.
