One of the great things about being a WordPress user is that you can actually help shape its future. As a free, open source piece of software, WordPress depends on its community to push it forward. And not just advanced developers, either. Literally anyone can get involved if they find the right point of entry–which is what this post is all about. However, before we get into the many ways in which anyone can contribute to WordPress, I’d like to take a moment and make a case as to why you should contribute to WordPress. Or, at the very least, consider it. Why Contribute to WordPress? There is no better way to learn something than to get your hands dirty working with it. And if that something happens to be literally any form of online publishing, then the platform you need to concern yourself with is WordPress. Simply put: WordPress is the future of publishing on the web. It’s the present too, but I think it’s important to point out WordPress’ strong positioning for future success. WordPress began as a blogging platform with the core mission of democratizing publishing. Over the years it has evolved from a mere blogging platform into the world’s leading content management system (CMS).
