Our new sponsor WPEngine has given everyone extra incentive this year to give back to WordPress and it’s something you’ve probably never done after a WordCamp weekend…
It’s September now, but when WCDFW rolls around this year, it’ll be October — and you know what that means — Fright Fest over at Six Flags will be in effect on the weekends, and you’re invited! WPEngine is offering free tickets to people who come and give back to WordPress for all the things it’s given us. So when we’re all done at Contributor Day, we’re packing up and hitting Six Flags for a night of thrills …and chills
Please Note: You have until Friday, September 19th, 2014 to RSVP in order to be eligible for the free Six Flag tickets!
Coming from out of town? Why not stay that extra day… Are you from around here? You probably never go to Six Flags anyway, so now here’s your excuse to go have some fun!
If you’ve responded with interest for attending Contributor Day, now is the time to RSVP, we need an accurate head count to make sure we have enough tickets to go around and to make sure we have a space big enough to host our Contributor Day.
What is a Contributor Day?
I think WordCamp San Francisco 2013 put it rather nicely —
Whether you’re a designer, developer, systems or support specialist, or writer, there’s a way for you to contribute:
- If you’re a programmer, contribute code directly to core!
- Write or update WordPress documentation and tutorials
- Create visual mockups of new features, or those being modified
- Help out with your knowledge of accessibility or other relevant standards
- Mobile developer? Help out with the apps!
- Answer questions on the forums and help other users or people who are new to WordPress
People who come to Contributor Day will be 1000% focused on contributing to or learning to contribute to the WordPress project — although we have fun, this is a working event. If you’ve been looking for an opening to add your contribution to WordPress, this is the perfect opportunity!
RSVP now for WCDFW Contributor Day 2014
Contributor Day is scheduled for Sunday, October 5th, 2014 from 12pm to 5pm at Hampton Inn & Suites – Forest Hill, 6555 Park Brook, Forest Hill, Texas, 76140. This location has been donated by the Pods Framework team who is holding their own PodsCamp in the same space on Friday (the day before WordCamp DFW).
There will be snacks, refreshments, coffee, wifi, and power strips! Also, be sure to bring a computer with you and have WordPress setup locally if you’re hoping to contribute code.
After Contributor Day, we’ll all head out to Six Flags Fright Fest and let loose after a long weekend of WordPressing — which was packed to the brim by PodsCamp, WordCamp DFW, and Contributor Day!
