It Takes a Village
With the release of WordPress 6.4 on the horizon, and the return of WordCamps in force this year, I’ve been reflecting on the sheer number of people it takes to make the WordPress community run and flourish.
And I also read posts like Marieke’s post Knowing Me, Knowing You, and how easy it is for us to work within small circles that can seem impenetrable to those just entering the WordPress space.
Like Marieke, I always vote for more parties – in person or virtually – to get to know more people. Over the last six months my local (online) meetup has had more people outside of Rochester attend than local folks. And as a result I’ve gotten to know some pretty awesome people.
So let’s do have more parties, more events, and more getting to know one another.
And remember that the PacMan concept works better if we’re also looking to invite people into it than just leave space for others to join.
