Community: Getting Involved

There are a ton of ways to get involved with the WordPress project and give back. Whether it’s design/ui, code, answering questions in the forums, writing documentation, translating, or testing, it all needs to be done and everyone has the ability to pitch in and help somewhere. I run through the reasons you might want to contribute, ways you can work it into your schedule and workflow, and how to get involved in each area. I’m a developer through and through, so I spend a little extra time talking about testing (in my opinion our biggest need), and what out release cycles look like and how each stage will affect what the various contribution areas look like.
