What We Do
Every month the East Bay WordPress Meetup brings together both newbies and experts to talk about everything WordPress.
This meetup is mainly for people who build WordPress sites for a living, though we welcome anyone who is interested in learning more about how to use WordPress.
If you have a suggestion for a meetup topic or would like to present, contact the meetup organizer.
Meetups last 2.5 hours and usually follow the following format:
- Quick demo by a meetup member
- Open Q & A
- Main Presentation
Once each year we hold a Contributor Day where members of the group contribute to WordPress

Meetup Notes & Handouts
Our small but mighty Contributor Day 2017 team decided to put the Gutenberg Test Site to use and test the new Gutenberg editor. (Special thanks to SiteDistrict for hosting the test site. If you missed Contributor Day, you can still use the test site.)
If you haven’t contributed to WordPress before, take a look at this great slide deck from Petya and follow these directions to get set up with your WordPress.org and WordPress Slack accounts.
Here’s a way to contribute on Contributor Day and beyond: go to the new Gutenberg Test Site, create an account, and try out the Gutenberg Editor. If you test the site, I’ll give you a Gutenberg Tester sticker at the Contributor Day meetup.
