WordPress and You: Community Engagement

How long have you been working with WordPress? Long enough to recognize that there is an army of people behind it? Behind WordPress is a collective that helps drive not only the software itself but also an entire ecosystem of products, services, blogs, and businesses.

Community is to WordPress as Bacon is to Breakfast

Breakfast without bacon may fill you up, but is it really worth eating? The WordPress community works in the same way – without the community around it, WordPress just wouldn’t be the same.

In this session we’ll chat all about the community – what it is, who it’s comprised of, what your role in it is, and why engaging with it is the only way you can truly benefit from everything it entails.

WordPress is its Community

You cannot have WordPress independent of its community. Sure, you can use the software without ever knowing one iota about the WordPress community, but this software wouldn’t exist if not for the community.

Please join us to learn about the impact and effects of having such a large and passionate base of users and contributors. Uncover the ways that you can bring about meaningful contributions – to both the community and the software – as well as how you can directly (and indirectly) benefit from getting involved.

If you work with WordPress, if your business depends on a WordPress-powered site, if you sell products or services related to WordPress, or even if you’re just trying to figure out what this WordPress thing is all about: this is your session.
