Sunday, August 25th, 10am-4pm

This year we’re using Sunday for a Contributor Day. We encourage you to join us and contribute no matter your skill level! There will be space for developers to contribute to WordPress Core, expert users to contribute towards documentation efforts, and anyone who is willing to help answer as many questions as they can in the WordPress.org support forum. Please note: this is not the space for you to come and ask for help — we’ll have a Happiness Bar on Saturday for that — instead, this is an opportunity for you to come and offer help in some capacity (chances are you will have learned at least one neat tip on Saturday that will help you answer someone else’s question in the WordPress.org support forum, at the very least).

If none of the above things sound right for you, we encourage you to join us anyway and use this time as a study hall to work on your own site. This is a great opportunity for you to immediately put to use the knowledge you gained on Saturday.
