In this class, Topher shows you how to improve and contribute to a WordPress plugin.
Beginning with a fork of the plugin on Github, Topher demonstrates how to use PHP Code Sniffer to find all the non-compliant code. Topher then shows how to fix the code and then submits a pull request to the plugin author.
This is a great class for people new to WordPress plugins, Github or contributing to the WordPress community.
