Announcing a weekly new contributors meeting

As discussed at the last core dev chat, we will begin holding weekly meetings focused on new contributors to WordPress core, starting with our first meeting Wed July 5, 2017 at 19:00UTC (plus potentially alternate timeslots to accommodate contributors of all time zones, please comment below with a suggested UTC time).

The new contributors meeting is the perfect place to come if you are new to contributing to WordPress core and have questions!

@flixos90, @welcher, @stevenkword and @desrosj have all volunteered to rotate helping facilitate the meetings. We will:

  • Welcome new contributor questions, large and small.
  • Focus on assisting new contributors with tickets or patches.
  • Scrub the good-first-bugs report on trac.wordpress.org to ensure these tickets get attention.

We hope you will join us. What do you think? Any questions? Leave a comment below.
