Support Internship Update: Week 9

Hi all.

So last week, things seemed to really get kicked off on IRC in regards to 3.7 and 3.8 planning. There’s some really exciting things being talked about and I’m really keen to help out where I can. For 3.7, I’m hoping to help improve the in-line docs throughout coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress.. I think this would fit in nicely with my Support internship, and could potentially lead to my first core contribution. 🙂

On the subject of contributing to core, Helen Hou-Sandí wrote a great blog post on “TracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub. Gardening” last week. Approaching Trac is pretty daunting for newcomers, but Helen’s outlined a good approach to take with this, and Trac curation is definitely another area of WordPress that I’m going to try and get involved with. For those interested, the blog post can be found here:

Aside from this, I aim to do some more theme reviews this week, and of course, keep replying to forum threads.

Next week, I’ll be backpacking around Europe, so there will be no blog posts from me for the next two Mondays. Thanks to everyone for all your positive feedback on my internship thus far. Speak to you again in a couple of weeks!
