A couple of days late due to travel to 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. Norway, sorry!

Past Week:

  • First training for women will be weekend of March 1st in DC, will confirm venue this week.Second training will be end of March in SF.
  • Gathered a Support/Dev brain trust of WordPress women (Christine Rondeau, Mika Epstein, Andrea Rennick, Amy Hendrix, Kailey Lampert) to work on training curriculum in proposed format.
  • Set the first team reps chat for Jan 31st at 20:00 UTC.
  • Massive time suck due to community upheaval over GPLGPL GPL is an acronym for GNU Public License. It is the standard license WordPress uses for Open Source licensing https://wordpress.org/about/license/. The GPL is a ‘copyleft’ license https://www.gnu.org/licenses/copyleft.en.html. This means that derivative work can only be distributed under the same license terms. This is in distinction to permissive free software licenses, of which the BSD license and the MIT License are widely used examples./WordCamps issue. Need to address this with all team reps.
  • Jen at WC Norway.
  • Worked on improvements to make.wordpress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users.
