Contributor support dates announced for 2021

If Contributing (more) to the Global WordPress Marketing Team happens to be on your list of potential new year’s resolutions, we have great news for you. We are super excited to start the next series of onboarding sessions for new contributors called ‘Contributing Made Fun & Easy’.

Join us and discover how to best contribute your talents, get to know the tools we use, and adopt good practices for working remotely and asynchronously.

At present, this is going to be a four-part series that will take place on a biweekly schedule. The first session will take place on Tuesday 19 January 2021, at 11:00 am UTC.

These introduction sessions are aimed to help both newcomers and those who would like to get a refresher to get on board with the team and the tasks that are underway. The Global WordPress Marketing team continuously makes an effort to market WordPress and its community to the outer world. Also, we’re an inclusive team, working hard to make everyone feel comfortable and welcomed.

The initial session starts off with basics covering details about:

  • the WordPress project
  • its code of conduct
  • getting to know each other
  • how marketing team works and its tasks
  • setting up your WordPress profile

If all this piques your interest, please complete the form to sign up for this session. These sessions are for new contributors, returners to the team, and those who have pledged to support marketing team but need some guidance on where to start. Every week we also publish tasks linked to the agenda and on the Marketing SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. to help people get started or find a next task.

If you have pledged to support the marketing team on the Five for the Future and don’t know where to start, these sessions are a great way to begin contributing.
