This year we’ve changed the format of Tuesday Trainings to better get directly at the issues that seem to be on the minds of folks in our community. How are we doing that? Great question. We’re either seeking to answer commonly asked questions or address commonly heard complaints, concerns, and confusions.
And this week, well this week what you all want to know is exactly what I would like to focus on. It’s been a while since we’ve received a topic request. I very much want this series to be of benefit to community members like you. Yes YOU!
Rather than having the same few people come up with ideas or answer questions that came in ages ago I wanted to take this week as an opportunity to truly open the Tuesday Training doors up for questions.
What kind of questions?
Well that’s up to you. I want to know what you all want to know. But I also don’t want to leave it all on you. If there’s anything you’re wondering about in WordPress community right now please share it in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer it, or find a person more appropriate to answer it. You can leave it as a comment on this post or send the question in to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject: Tuesday Trainings.
Still don’t have a question?
Sometimes coming up with ideas out of nowhere is challenging. And we don’t know what we don’t know so I also thought I would share a list of ideas we have waiting in the wings. If there’s one you would particularly like to see answered please let me know in the comments.
