  • Seeking out contributors for all areas of the site – lesson plans, workshops, and discussion groups.
  • Planning and implementing enhancements to improve the experience and effectiveness of the platform.
  • Attending regular meetings in SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. to update on progress and engage in real-time discussions around the work being done.

Our first meeting will take place on Friday, 4 September 2020 at 10:00am UTC in the #community-team channel in the Making WordPress Slack group (register for Slack here). The primary purpose of this meeting is for everyone to meet for the first time and to deicde what areas each individual will focus on. Here’s an agenda we will follow, but I expect plenty of discussion branching off this:

1. Welcome and introductions
Who’s in the group?

2. Group responsibilities
What are the group responsibilities and what do they each entail?

3. Volunteers for leadership roles
Are there any areas of team responsibility that you would like to take a leadership role in?

4. Next steps
What are we going to do next? How is Learn WordPress going to grow?

5. Next meeting
When will we meet again? What regular schedule would work well?

See you there!
