WordCamp Asia 2024 Contributor Day Recap

WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. Asia 2024 Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/. was held on Thursday, March 7th, in the beautiful city of Taipei. The Training Team shared a large conference hall with most of the other Make Training Teams, which made it slightly challenging to address the entire group. However, it did foster a positive atmosphere enriched by community spirit. 

Our plan for the day was shared in this post: WordCamp Asia 2024 Contributor Day.

This year, we had a total of 15 in-person contributors and 7 online contributors, giving us a total of 22 contributors to the Training Team on Contributor Day!
