Help Out Development

Posted January 19, 2006 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under Development.

Behind the scenes of WordPress there are dozens of people spending hundreds of hours a week keeping the WordPress community humming. There are many ways to contribute to WordPress but following the 2.0 release a lot more emphasis has been placed on the development and testing side.

We recently decided to split WordPress up into logical divisions and allow people to volunteer to help out with particular sections, be it as an organizer, a tester, or a coder. You can view the various sections and sign up to help with one on the Codex. In a week we’ll begin contacting the various rockstars who volunteer to coordinate and organize everybody.

  12. [...] Just because I’m a whore to WordPress, I’ll mention this to you masses (or, rather, you two). For those of you who don’t regularly check their Dashboards (assuming you use WordPress), Matt’s looking for outstanding young (or maybe not so young) men and women to help with the development of WordPress. So, you should go on over to the Codex page regarding Responsibilities and sign up under an area you can help out with. “Why?” you ask? Because you’ll be helping out, and that’ll give you warm fuzzies… (plus, you get to be a “rockstar.”) Leave a Reply… [...]

  13. [...] Schwer zu glauben, aber WordPress wird in diesen Tagen 3 Jahre alt. Es freut mich mit anzusehen, was aus diesem Projekt geworden ist. Als Blogsoftware, durch die auch dieser Blog angetrieben wird, steht es großen (und auch kommerziellen) Kollegen wie z.B. Movable Type inzwischen kaum noch nach und ist in manchen Belangen, meines Erachtens nach, gar um eine Nasenlänge voraus. Den Geburtstag nehmen die Entwickler zum Anlass die Community einzuladen mitzuhelfen und zwar nicht nur bei der Fehlersuche. Jeder kann nunmehr seinen Beitrag leisten, um WordPress noch besser zu machen. Happy Birthday. [via Jörg] [...]
