Rocío Valdivia - How to get (more) involved with WordPress

Rocío Valdivia - How to get (more) involved with WordPress

I would show a summary of all the teams and ways of contributing to the open source WP project and how to start contributing in any of them and what they're for. The idea is to show to the audience how easy it is to be a contributor no matter their level of technical knowledge, etc. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the project!
