Contributors will be hosting a live product demo on Thursday, March 2, 2023 at 12:00 PM EST via Zoom. WordPress contributors Anne McCarthy and Rich Tabor, who are helping lead the release, will give viewers a tour of the features coming in 6.2.
“This is a slightly different format from the previous 6.0 and 6.1 walk-throughs, focusing on showcasing the great work that’s been going into the release,” Marketing Team contributor Jonathan Pantani said. “Future releases can expect to see this, a walk-through/discussion, or both types of live events become part of the release cycle.”
The event will be moderated by Nathan Wrigley, who will guide the discussion and present questions from the audience. Questions can be submitted in advance in the Make WordPress Slack via the #walkthrough channel. The livestream will be recorded and published in a follow-up post after the product demo has concluded. There is no registration for the event. Those who want to watch and participate live can launch the meeting using Zoom at the scheduled time.
