WordCamp 2007 – Getting Involved with WordPress

Mark Jaquith and Lloyd BuddThis latest video from WordCamp 2007 features Lloyd Budd and Mark Jaquith on the topic of Getting Involved with WordPress.

This lecture occurred on Saturday July 21, 2007 from 3pm-4pm in San Francisco, CA at the Swedish American Hall.

If I had to summarize Lloyd and Mark’s comments into just one sentence it would be, “you don’t have to be a programmer to contribute to the development of WordPress.”

The community can use your assistance with everything from helping with documentation, to testing and bug reporting, to building themes (like mine) and writing/updating plugins (like mine).

Heck, you can even help out by attending events like this and taking photos or videos of them. Lorelle is giving back by making a low cost book called Blogging Tips available. (I guarantee she didn’t do it for the money!)

So without further ado, here are Mark and Lloyd to give you the details.

The instructions at Chapter 3. Installing PHPUnit looked pretty easy but since I wanted to do my testing under XAMPP I knew there would be problems. Hopefully the problems would be minor. [...]
