Contributor Day at The Innovation Village:
But the excitement didn’t end there. On the third day, we transitioned to The Innovation Village, where more than 40 attendees gathered for Contributor Day activities. It was a day dedicated to giving back to the WordPress community.
One of the highlights was a website hackathon, where participants worked together to support startup entrepreneurs and various WordPress projects. The spirit of teamwork and the desire to make WordPress better were evident throughout the day.
