Spring into contributing! It's spring, and that means another edition of the Yoast Contributor day! This day we're planting seeds to create a bigger and better WordPress in the future. But we won't do that alone. We need you to join us! 🌱

This day will be open to everyone who wants to contribute to WordPress. No matter if you are an experienced contributor or a first-timer. Everyone can join! And apart from contributing to WordPress, this day allows you to make new connections and get to know many people from Yoast! 🥳

⏰ When and where?

When? May 13, from 10:00 AM till 3:30 PM (UTC+2). You're free to join for the whole day, or only for a couple of hours – that’s up to you!

Where? Online. All of us will be working in Zoom breakout rooms (download the Zoom program here).
