WordPress 3.7 was released last night while I was on my way to our local WordPress meetup. Once I arrived, I promptly updated to the new version, because I like to stay on top of the newest releases, but also for another reason… Yes, I am listed as a Core Contributor in this version!
I’ve been wanting to help out WordPress core for some time and for this version I decided to start by volunteering to help document a few files in the inline docs for hooks initiative.
This is my first time contributing to WordPress core and I’m sure it won’t be my last. I love the community around WordPress and plan to give back by contributing more code to WordPress core and also continue to participate in my local meetup and WordCamps.
If you are interested in WordPress at all, I’d suggest getting involved!
