We had an amazing MeetUp of WordPressians Group (6th meetup) at Dhaka, last Saturday (June 28th, 2014). It was our first meetup at HubDhaka, a great place of my dear friend Sajid. It was a super great meetup with all of our guys in WordPress Community.

Contributing In WordPress

How about Contributing in WordPress? Giving back to the community? But you think that's very difficult? You need to be a developer, a master programmer? It must be! Contributing means you have to able to find mistakes by genius programmer, and solve it! ♠

You are wrong! It's a myth most people think, but to contribute in WordPress, you don't have to have any of those skill. Here In this presentation I tried to break the myth, I have shown how anybody could contribute, weather you are a developer, or a designer, or just a user, or a person who just like blogging, anybody could help-out.  Hopefully you will be interested to contribute after going through this.

I have shown 8 ways you could contribute. Lets see after following it, if you contribute at least once.

And this is a pure resource, you could follow the slideshow presentation on top of the page, here I will add all resource for easy access.
