During the WordPress development chat today, one of the topics of discussion centered around the suggestion of changing the Hello World post that is seen with every new install of WordPress to something that contained useful WordPress specific information such as links to the release mailing list, the codex and other helpful material. I’d like to break down how this change came about to show how easy it is to contribute to the WordPress project without writing a line of code. It first started out as a discussion on the WordPress Hackers mailing list concerning the addition of email notifications to the core of WordPress to keep administrators abreast of new versions of WordPress as they were released. The discussion became long winded but a response by Lynne Pope provided one of those why didn’t I think of that moments. Change the sample data – instead of, “this is a […]

Back in early July, I asked the question is WordPress a thankless community? Not surprisingly, this post struck a chord with both developers and end users. The point of the article was to raise awareness that there are a number of people who give to the WordPress community and it seemed as though a large portion of the community was not stopping to at least say thank you for the contributions. In the article, I present a few different methods for showing appreciation or for giving back but too many people in the comments focused on the monetary aspect of the situation which is not what I had in mind. In this post, I’m going to highlight a number of different ideas, comments, and blog posts that came out of the discussion. First, we have Matt Mullenweg who shares his thoughts on the idea that WordPress is a thankless community. […]

Jane Wells recently put the call out to the WordPress Professionals mailing list asking for recommendations for Women WordPress developers. That is, those who develop plugins or patches for WordPress, not bloggers. Personally, when I think of women involved with WordPress, I think of Lorelle VanFossen, Lisa Sabin Wilson, and a few others. Other than Lisa who develops themes, I can’t think of any women off the top of my head that contributes routinely to the development of WordPress or plugins. If you are a female WordPress developer and you live on the West Coast, preferably around San Francisco, CA get in contact with Jane Wells as soon as possible. You may end up with the opportunity to present at WordCamp San Francisco.

Helping out the WordPress project comes in two flavors, direct and indirect.

Adobe Contribute and WordPress

Adobe Contribute and WordPress Adobe contribute now works with WordPress and other blogging tools to allow users to post and publish content from within Adobe, Macromedia and Microsoft applications directly to blogs as well as other publishing applications and CMSs. Lots of tricks and features built in, including workflow and authoring permissions (not sure how it is implemented). I like their selling point that it will help users get started with blogging by integerating blogs into existing and familiar publishing environments.
