Master Remote Work by Contributing to Open Source Projects

If WordPress was a company, it would have 20,000 employees in all over the world. Contributing to WordPress provides a unique opportunity for you to prepare for the challenges of remote work. This helps you to stand out in the growing WordPress ecosystem, where the demand for high-quality professionals is growing as quickly as the community itself.
