This weekend has been a weekend of WordPress events, here in Spain we had WordCamp Barcelona and in US there was WordCamp US.
I attended at WordCamp Barcelona, since five or six years here in Spain we are an a very active community.
I read the post in PostStatus of "The State of the Word 2016" and I see some opportunities in the nonprofits world arround WordPress.
In this post I read: "Also, the organization will start to promote hackathons for non-profits and NGOs."
Could some attendees of WCUS comment some details about this words of Matt.
Thanks and regards from Spain ;)
I was not on in Philadelphia, and after Post Status articles and also after the article on WPTavern, I decided I needed to listen to Matt's State of the Word via LiveStream myself. Although I found it very enlightening in many aspects, I was not able to learn more details on the nonprofit support via the Foundation. In the Q & A, someone asked about the education initiative in underdeveloped countries, and he said that the training team would start developing curriculums to be taught be volunteers in the various communities, with 'support' from the foundation. He did not say anything else.
I had the feeling that he doesn't have much more than the cornerstones of a plan. I read in WordPress Slack community-team channel, and I have not seen anything either.
I am though very excited about the outlook as this is one area, I have been working in the last six years in my local community.
Maybe RL attendees have more insight from the hallway tracks of from the Contributor Day.
Happy Monday, ladies, and gents!
I talked yesterday with a Community Wrangler at Automattic via Slack.She told me that by the end of January they will have more details of collaborations with nonprofits.I will remember this in January and I will share this information with this community.
Cheers Javier, would be great if you could follow up on that.
Javier, thanks so much for sharing the do_action link. I've been wanting to organize this kind of a hackathon for a few months. Extremely happy to see that I don't have to do all the work as far as structuring the event. And please do continue to keep us posted!
