When a (newbie?) user goes to WordPress.org and clicks "Get Involved" they reach a page (make.wordpress.org) that contains a complete list of the different volunteer teams that contribute to making WordPress what it is today.

But to a new user, when they are thinking about getting involved with WordPress, it's likely they are (primarily? also?) looking for something in between downloading and using WordPress, and making a full commitment to joining a WordPress volunteer team.

I think it would be valuable to include content and links that point visitors of this page to showcase the 630+ WordPress Meetups that happen Worldwide, the numerous upcoming WordCamp events, and a resource kit for joining and/or hosting a WordPress Contributor Day.

These are all great ways to get involved with WordPress as they are a logical bridge from WordPress user status to WordPress volunteer.


Include Links in sub-nav menu at make.wordpress.org that point to:

  • Official WordPress Meetups
  • Upcoming WordCamps
  • Contributor Day Resources (Hosting, Onboarding, etc.)

  • Priority changed from high to normal

It's a great idea but potentially could be improved further by the community team. I think it's worth bringing in the Community Team to weigh in on this.

I'd suggest you make a proposal at #community-team on slack or https://make.wordpress.org/community/

Great suggestion, we'll reach out with a proposal to #community-team asap to weigh in and hopefully improve on this. Since #marketing team meeting was cancelled today, it will likely be after next week's meeting.
