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.

  45. @petyeah
    #WCPorto
    Don’t ever forget that you’re a citizen of this world, and there are things you can do
    to lift the human spirit, things that are easy, things that are free, things that you can
    do every day: civility, respect, kindness, character. You’re too good for
    schadenfreude, you’re too good for gossip and snark, you’re too good for
    intolerance, you’re too good to think people who disagree with you are your enemy.
    Don’t ever forget that a small group of thoughtful people can change the world. It’s
    the only thing that ever has.
    DECISIONS ARE MADE BY
    THOSE WHO SHOW UP
