Welcome to Yoast's Contributor Day! We themed it "Bring the animal in you" so we'll explore our primal instincts and unleash our creativity. In today's tech-driven world, it's vital to reconnect with nature's energy and diversity. Animals offer abundant inspiration and valuable life lessons.

Embrace your inner animal and embody different creature's characteristics and strengths. Whether it's the grace of a feline predator, the endurance of a wildebeest, or the intelligence of a clever corvid, there's an untapped animal waiting within each of us.

Yoast Contributor day is open to everyone who wants to contribute to WordPress. It doesn't matter if you are an experienced contributor or if you are a first-timer. Everyone can join this day!

⏰ When and where?

When? October 4, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM (UTC+2). You're free to join for the whole day or only a few hours – that’s up to you!

Where? Online, in Zoom breakout rooms. If you are from Yoast and want to work from the office, that's not a problem. We will have some rooms booked in Buildings #5 and #6. However, keep in mind that we all will work entirely online.
