Introducing the Core teams

Last but most definitely not least, we bring you the Core team!

The Core team are the people responsible for writing the code that makes WordPress[dot]org. They not only write all new WordPress features (including Gutenberg) but also test them, fix reported bugs, recommend best coding practices and maintain a set of WordPress developer guides and tutorials.

Because the amount of work is so vast, the Core team has been separated into sub-sections, known as components (see full list).  Each person can contribute to one or several Core components, depending on their interests. 

We are super privileged to be able to bring you two very topical perspectives on the Make WordPress Core team: Gutenberg and Data Privacy.

Introducing the teams – Accessibility and Support

So, as mentioned in the schedule, we are super happy to have six teams on our first Contributor Day in Glasgow: Accessibility, Core (with special focus on Gutenberg and Privacy), Support, Theme Review and Polyglots.

Some of these teams have lately been busy with new developments and they are all very relevant to a lot of our work, as web developers, content creators and business owners.

In this post, we would like to introduce you to two of these teams: the Accessibility and the Support teams.

More on the other teams will come in a forthcoming post!
