Boston WordPress Hack Day on the Horizon

Have you ever been interested in contributing to WordPress, but didn’t know how to start? We’ve all been in that position. That’s why we’re putting together a day long WordPress hackathon! We’ll kick off the day with an introduction to core contributing and some information about the WordPress 3.6 development cycle, then we’ll have some lunch and spend the rest of the day working individually or in groups on tickets for core. Bring your laptops, bring your notebooks, but most of all, bring a desire to join the team and contribute.

WordCamp Boston 2012

July 14th marked the beginning of yet another successful WordCamp in the City on a Hill, making it Boston’s third time to host the event. Approximately 600 speakers, attendees and volunteers arrived at Boston University from all over the world to congregate around a common entity, our beloved WordPress.

Saturday morning kicked off with one of what I found to be one of the most well-presented and informative talks, How We can have Nice Things, by K. Adam White.  The session was focused on demonstrating how the modern WordPress developer can spearhead new and upcoming web technologies such as CSS pre-processing, server-side Javascript, client-side templating, and source control.  Doing so allows developers to expand and update their creative process outside of the traditional LAMP stack workflows.
