What should I bring in Contributor Day?
Laptop – You’ll need to be able to access the Make WordPress Slack instance and the team’s online-based onboarding materials.
Name Badge – You’ll need your name badge to enter the ballroom, or be able to show your VOW clearance on your smartphone.
If you want to contribute to the design, core, or meta teams then you need to set up a local development server. So, we recommend Varying Vagrant Vagrants (VVV). Here are some setup instructions that will help you to set that up. But if you’re not able to setup by your own, someone can help during the contributor day.
