Unlike other areas, I guess web development would be needing someone who truly knows what they are doing due to the sensitivity. So familiarity with IPB and wordpress (play0ad is wordpress, right?) would go a long way.

@implodedok would be the one you should get in contact with.

I saw that you mention about enrolling to a programming position in the future. You dont need to. Just pick a simple ticket and start working on it.

Skills and Experience: no previous work experience

I enjoyed reading your introduction, but this part bothers me a little.  Of course you don't need to be extremely experienced to contribute, but if I read your message right, you're on the other side of the spectrum.  So let me ask the difficult question:

What exactly do you have to offer Wildfire Games?  We're not a learning institution, we're a group of developers who write code, design art, etc.  If you want to contribute to our website (we are actually going to develop a new one in the future, so an extra web developer would actually be wanted), it would help greatly if you were at least familiar with PHP7 and SQL.  Wordpress experience would be good as well, but if you're at least a decent PHP7 developer or familiar with HTML5/CSS3, we could work on that.  But I have no idea what tasks you could fulfill with "no experience".

Please elaborate.

@implodedok I am not here to learn, i am here to build a website, i worked giving maintenace to americaeconomia-ca.com for 6 months which is a wordpress website and developed a tiny php framework for 3 months at Claro (i have the repository at bitbucket), i put i have no previous experience because i haven't build a portfolio to show, but i know we can improve this website greatly, not only in the way we present content which need some rework, like combining text, colors and media in a more appealing way but also in the backend which i am willing to help with. Knowledge: I can work with mysql, symfony, wordpress, nodejs + expressjs.

@implodedok Why do you need Wordpress? A static site generator should be sufficient.

Our website content is not static.  Having a CMS is a requirement for us.

That is good to hear.  Don't sell yourself short when presenting yourself.  This all counts as work experience, even if you don't have the portfolio.  Do you have any experience with designing websites?  (and by that I mean the visual side, not the HTML/CSS code)
