Contributor Meetups

The SoSo WP Meetup is organizing monthly WordPress Contributor Meetups, where folks can get together to help with WordPress documentation, support, coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. code, internationalization, and lots more.

We’ve been holding monthly Documentation Sprints at the WordPress Seattle Meetup for over a year and wanted to kick off our SoSo WP Meetup doing the same.  Now there are two monthly weekend meetups you can join from anywhere to contribute to WordPress.

We need all experience levels – this isn’t just for coders. We need writers, screenshot-takers, editors, and of course, developers.  If you show up, we’ll find a way you can help.


What if you’re not in the Seattle/Tacoma area?

We use the The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. IRC chat #wordpress-sfd for chatter while we’re at the meetup, so if you’re in another state, country, or planet, you should be able to participate as long as you’ve got a good internet connection.

How long are the Contributor Meetups?

We’ve found that 3 to 4 hours on a Saturday is just about all the average contributor can handle and be productive.

Our first Contributor Meetup will be from 10am to 1pm, but we may adjust these times in the future.

  1. Head on over to and join the South Sound WordPress Meetup.
  2. Then, RSVP for any meetups that interest you and ask any questions you have.
