Contributing to WP: From Beginning to Closed Ticket

40 minute intermediate seminar

Description/Proposal

One of the greatest benefits of using WordPress is that it’s open source and is constantly being improved by the community. However, few people know exactly what that process looks like.

When you identify a bug in WordPress, where does that information need to be reported? Who fixes it? And how does it eventually get sent out to 25% of the web in the next WordPress Core release?

In this talk, we’ll look at the progression of a bug ticket from beginning to end and see how the software we use every day is continually improved.
