Three years ago today, I changed three lines of code in WordPress and did it without someone else signing off. In fact, I didn't write the code that went into WordPress that day.
I've not been a high volume committer in my three years ( I've made 283 total commits), but I have had the pleasure of working on user-facing features such as Shiny Updates for plugins and "Logout everywhere" along with helping to multiple underlying components. I also had the honor of being a deputy release lead for WordPress 4.7.
Here's to three years of helping to democratize publishing 🍻
