A contributor day is an event dedicated to giving back to the WordPress project, often paired with a WordCamp. It’s for both seasoned contributors and people making their first foray into getting involved.
We had 334 contributors at the inaugural WordCamp US contributor day and anticipate easily surpassing that this year.
