        Congrats on the ticket sales! You’ll find, I think, that once you’ve started announcing some speakers/setting your schedule those tickets will start selling a bit faster.

      WordCamp OKC finished out last weekend! I had a call with Lynn to followup. She said everything went smooth. A few bullets.

      • Had their team followup Thur 4th for camp followups
      • Video team is working on processing videos
      • Vendors are paid
      • Need to double check sponsor fulfillment was completed, but I’m pretty sure it was.
      • Said they managed to schedule out an entire years worth of meetups!
      • Showed signs of standard camp planning burnout 🙂 … they’ll be back

      I’ve been mentoring WordCamp Omaha and last week we took at look at what progress we wanted to see in the next week or so. Some highlights:

      • The venue is all squared away; the contracts are signed and insurance certificates sent.
      • Calls for speakers and sponsors are live on the site, so if you’ve been looking for a Midwest event to get involved in head on over!
      • The site’s design isn’t final, but they are publishing content and will make a big announcement about the new design when it happens.
      • Our next meeting is this Thursday.

      Other Things from the Week:

      • Got WordCamp Rochester’s post published on Central.
      • Reached out to the WPCampus folks to see how things went and have a conversation.
      • Did some training/hand-off on annual survey result emails.
      • Had some conversations about @wordcamp.org emails.
      • Worked with Central folks to determine WordCamp travel schedules.

      Held our monthly WordPress Contributor Meetup in Seattle on Saturday and had three new members attend, and was able to give them a tour of the make.wordpress.org teams and get them started with contributing in their interest areas.

      That’s my favorite part of Contributor Meetups: getting new people engaged.

      Realized today that I’ve been organizing regular Contributor Meetups in Seattle since May 2013 and have learned a lot about what works to get people engaged. Where’s the time go? Need to write up a post . . .

      My one-sentence recommendation for Meetup and Contributor Day organizers:

      “Show up, smile, shake hands, call people by name, thank them for contributing, and encourage them to come back.”

      Contributing often feels thankless to new folks, so I try to make sure they’re included, appreciated, and that they know they’re making a difference.

      Hi 🙂
      I’m not sure this is the correct place for posting this. Please guide me if I’m doing anything wrong.

      I submitted the request at https://make.wordpress.org/community/meetup-interest-form/ for a meetup.com group called “Saigon WordPress”.

      It has been 10 days and I have not received any feedback yet. Is that normal or my submission was failed somehow? 🙂

      Thanks.

      @brandondove, I’ve been meaning to check in on the mentor dashboard. Josepha said there were some discrepancies between it and the spreadsheet, and those were preventing you from being able to ditch the spreadsheet yet.

      If you can give me a link to the spreadsheet and a description of the discrepancies, I can look at fixing them so that we no longer need the spreadsheet.

    • Brandon Dove 4:38 pm on August 11, 2016 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      @iandunn, yes, a few. I was talking to @kcristiano about it yesterday and he had some ideas. My tracking spreadsheet is here (I’ve given you access): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1QnPnSpbhrEFeBaYeZimnzkwjIsAG63apY05IBEfdz5I/edit. The two sheets that are relevant are “WC Status” (data) and “Mentor Assignments” (report).

      One of the first things is that there are a ton of mentors in the list that aren’t official mentors. It looks like they’ve been placed in the mentor fields by orgs or someone else in the past. The number of mentors in the dashboard is 65, while the spreadsheet shows 29.

      Because we’re listing the mentors by email address, some folks are showing up more than once which is also skewing our numbers. The only way I can think to correct this would be to make the mentor fields on the WC CPT a select list of known mentors. This would also require that we have a checkbox or some other field to check against on user profiles to allow users to be flagged as a mentor.

      There are some other enhancements that can be made to match the functionality of the spreadsheet, but we can get to those over time. This dashboard has definitely made my life easier, so I appreciate the work that’s been put into it so far. Thanks!

      • Ian Dunn 3:26 pm on August 12, 2016 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        Ah, yeah, I intentionally didn’t do anything with usermeta or better UI so that we could get a quick v1, but it looks like that’ll be important for the next iteration.

        Should we restrict the mentor field to only Super Deputies, so that organizers can’t set/modify it?

        How should inactive/past mentors be represented?

    Outreachy week 4: WordPress Meetup Organizer Training 

    The last week I was working with a newly created WordPress Meetup Organizer handbook. The training as it is now can be found here. As you can see, the pages were moved to the testing site and small quizzes were added. You are very welcome to try it out, and if you have any feedback regarding the way it works please feel free to let me know.

    Some changes we will implement later are:

    • Replace the links to the handbook materials with the links to the equivalent training site materials – after it will be decided where exactly will this site be hosted,
    • Possibly expand the introduction and conclusion a bit.

    Another alteration of the initial plan I didn’t mention last time is that we decided to have small quizzes after each lesson as opposed to larger quizzes in the end of each module, that is composed out of several lessons. The reasoning for that is that Sensei is designed in the way that if you want the “composed” quiz, all of the questions have to be linked to the module’s last lesson – which can become a disadvantage if you decide to move one of the lessons to another module or delete one of the lessons — the questions appended to this lessons will get orphaned and end up impeding the learning experience. On the other hand, having all questions based on the lesson’s content linked to exactly this lesson enables a more flexible, chunking and reuse-oriented structure.

    Next week I’ll be working on questions for the WordPress deputy handbook-based training. And I will also get to go to WordCamp Europe, which I’m so excited about! I’m really looking forward to seeing community members in person and witnessing all the WordCamp glory and bonanza in real life, not just imagining it while reading the WordCamp organization-related materials. So please expect a full report about this trip next week 🙂 Also, at WordCamp Europe the WordCamp and Meetup organizer courses will be ready for testing on contributor day.
