We would love to hear what you would like to learn more about during the contributor day. -Our plans are flexible depending on what you would like to do.

We would like to start with a one hour introduction to theme reviewing, between 14:00-15:00 UTC and we will do that in two groups, using Zoom. You do not need to use a camera or a microphone to participate.

We will talk about why we do reviews, how we perform reviews, and perhaps do a quick theme review together.

After our break, we would like to focus on full site editing and blockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor.

So, for this part, we will have to wing it :). The goal is to test, learn and to create a theme together that eventually can be added to the theme directory.

Team members and team representatives will also be available on slack during the afternoon.
