December 10 Meeting Summary and 4.5 Call for Volunteers

We gathered together after the marvelous release of 4.4. Many congrats to @wonderboymusic, his deputies @sergeybiryukov and @ocean90, and all contributors who helped out! See the full transcript for the entire chat.

On 4.4

What’s Next?
@helen is building a product design team that is kicking off shortly. I’m excited about this — it’s an opportunity to really step up our game in the UX space. She’ll be building out a few projects and calling for volunteers on make/design, so watch there if you’re interested in getting involved.

Officially, 4.5 doesn’t kick off until early January, but I’d like to start off with a ready-to-go set of teams. The time between now and then is also great for preparing feature plugins that you’re interested in seeing merged.

4.5 Call for Volunteers
Currently looking for those interested in:

  • Being a Release Backup/Deputy
  • Contributing to Week in Core Summary Posts
  • Working on a particular development focus or feature

If you’re interested in contributing in any of these areas/roles, please leave a comment! Feel free to ping me in the Make WordPress Slack (@mike) if you have any questions on these roles.
