Finding Your Way Around WordPress

WordPress is powerful software with a large, diverse community — even if you know how to use WordPress, it can be hard to know how to get started in the community! In this session, Angela will share lessons learned from one year of participation in the WordPress community, including key terminology, an overview of the teams and skills that build WordPress, and tips for cross-discipline communication, all with the goal of helping you get involved.
