WP-CLI or WordPress Command Line Interface has become an integral tool for developers to launch and manage sites. To encourage new contributors to the project, Alain Schlesser is organizing the first WP-CLI Hack Day, Friday, July 20th beginning at 08:00 CEST.

Schlesser and other contributors will be available in the WP-CLI Slack channel all day and on the project’s GitHub site to answer questions and help people contribute to the project.

From 16:00-18:00 CEST, Schlesser will host a video call that’s open to everyone where people can join in, discuss issues, and visually work through pull requests. The goal is to reach 20 pull requests that have been merged during the event. A post on Make/CLI  blog will be published once WP-CLI Hack Day concludes summarizing any progress that was made.

To prepare prospecting contributors for the event, Schlesser has published a detailed guide on how to contribute to WP-CLI.

Folks can follow along on Twitter using the hashtag #hackwpcli. If Hack CLI Day is successful, more events will likely be created in the future to cover more time zones.
