How about Contributing in WordPress? Giving back to the community? But you think that's very difficult? You need to be a developer, a master programmer? It must be! Contributing means you have to able to find mistake of genius programmer, and solve it.

You are wrong! Its a myth most people think, but to contribute in WordPress, you dont need any of those skill. Here In this presentation I will break the myth, I have shown how anybody could contribute, weather you are a developer, or a designer, or just a user, or a person who just like blogging, anybody could help-out. This presentation was a part of my session at WordPressians MettUp, June 28th, 2014. Hopefully you wilbe interested, I have shown 8 ways you could contribute. Lets see after following it if you contribute one. And this is a pure resource, I even thought to make it in HTML, so its not tradition presentation, its all about resource, what to do where.
