:lion_face: Release your inner WordPress lion!

Yoast Contributor day is an event where everyone interested in contributing to WordPress joins to work on a specific task or project to improve the WordPress software and community even more. We welcome our external guests to join both online and in our HQ.

Theme this September: Release your inner WordPress lion! Lions are the symbol of courage, strength, and wisdom. Many of us tend to keep those traits hidden. We’re afraid of showing our strengths and passions, primarily out of fear of rejection. Contributing to WordPress helps people build skills and self-confidence. Also, people joining the WordPress community often come as strangers and leave as friends! Did we convince you to join already?

⏰ When and where?

September 14, from 10:00 AM till 4:30 PM (UTC+2). You're free to join for the whole day or only for a couple of hours – that’s up to you!

You can either join online or live at the Yoast HQ:

  • Online - all of us will be working in Zoom breakout rooms (download Zoom here)
  • Joining from the Yoast headquarters? The address is: Don Emanuelstraat 3, 6602 GX, Wijchen in The Netherlands. We’ll provide a working space for you. Bring your laptop and headphones, and you're good to go!
