Following up on our experiment with a Support Volunteers Orientation back in December, our next Orientation session will be on Tuesday, February 6, 2018, 17:00 UTC

We will “meet” in the #forums SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at channel, and walk through the basics of helping out on 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. support forums, and give some pointers for getting started. Experienced volunteers are welcomed as a refresher.

If you know someone who would like to start helping in the forums, please do encourage them to come and start contributing to WordPress!

To participate, new volunteers will need to create a user account if they don’t already have one, then create an account on Slack and join the #forums channel. If you already have a user account (perhaps you have posted a question in the forums before), then you can use that account.

Update: Here’s a link to the Slack transcript of the orientation:
