CommHub Meeting today

With WCEU over and being back from my holiday, I would like to get CommHub rolling again.

There is a commhub meeting today at 16:00 UTC.

I believe the wireframes are ready to be reviewed by the community, and want a first wave of opinions.

Anyone who is planning to attend the meeting, please review the wireframes and come along with your input. We will go through the frames, see if anything needs improving before doing a shout out to the whole community.

CommHub Meeting notes:

Last week notes:

We discussed the saving perferences on searches; the idea being that if someone is logged in you can save it against their .org profile. A suggested solution to not having favourites but being able to save someones perferences is by allowing users to add a location to their WordPress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ profile. Commhub search can then grab this by default and show the closest events in the list of upcoming events without a default distance range. All these defaults can then be changed by the user. To make this more intruative, we would need to make it more obvious that the location in a user’s WordPress.org profile matters. This could be
We’d need to make it more obvious that your location in your wordpress.org profile matters though.

Not much has happened between last week and this week as I forgot to put up the todo list for the team. So last week’s todo list has become this week’s todo list.

This week’s todos:

  1. Clean up the wireframes so there is a clear walkthrough path
  2. Fill in the blank pages so theres a full set of
  3. Simplify search to just have one box and one “search events”
  4. Move the refine panel to the right side instead of the left
  5. Export widgetWidget A WordPress Widget is a small block that performs a specific function. You can add these widgets in sidebars also known as widget-ready areas on your web page. WordPress widgets were originally created to provide a simple and easy-to-use way of giving design and structure control of the WordPress theme to the user. text should just export the events on the current page to XML/iCal
  6. Iron out the terminology across the site. Meet Up / User group all need to be changed to just say *Group*
  7. Remove Favourites from MVPMinimum Viable Product "A minimum viable product (MVP) is a product with just enough features to satisfy early customers, and to provide feedback for future product development." - WikiPedia into future features book
  8. Ensure all the links everywhere are clear so that people know its a link.
  9. Make a sitemap (even if its a rudimentary one )

@shelob9, I am starting from the top, so if you want to start from the bottom and create a sitemap, we can meet in the middle.

Hi everyone I’m going to have to postpone…

Hi everyone, I’m going to have to postpone the meeting today as I’ve come down with some sort of food poisoning, and I’m not able to attend.
Please could you pick a date & time that would be convenient for the meeting? Otherwise we will do next week’s meeting as normal.

I’ve visualized a couple of premises and thoughts…

I’ve visualized a couple of premises and thoughts re: commhub as a result of contributor dayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/. at WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. London. There’s also a poll on polyglots to evaluate whether these thoughts are of meaning in general, or an edge case.

CommHub Update

Last week:

Slack Log (Requires 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/. login to view. Set one up if you don’t have a Slack account)

We have created a myBalsamiq project for CommHub.

By doing so:

  • Anyone with a my Balsamiq account can help create wireframes.
    If you want to help with creating and modifying wireframes, please create a myBalsamiq account and let me know what your email address is so I can add you to the CommHub project team.
  • Anyone can go and review and comment on the wireframes created without needing an myBalsamiq acccount. You can do this by just going to https://wp-commhub.mybalsamiq.com/projects/commhub/grid

We also found out that as we are an open sourceOpen Source Open Source denotes software for which the original source code is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified. Open Source **must be** delivered via a licensing model, see GPL. project we can go for a free project plan. I have been collecting everything together ready to send off to them.

The full list of MVPMinimum Viable Product "A minimum viable product (MVP) is a product with just enough features to satisfy early customers, and to provide feedback for future product development." - WikiPedia features which need to be wire – framed are listed on the Google Spreadsheet.

We are continuing with mocking up the MVP requirements using Balsamiq. It would be great to find some UXUX UX is an acronym for User Experience - the way the user uses the UI. Think ‘what they are doing’ and less about how they do it. / accessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers).

We also worked together to update my very poor attempt at creating a description for the project. Thanks to @mikelking and @shelob9 for helping to review & improve the description.

@camikaos, hope you find the description below ok:

Yesterday we reviewed the descriptions that the team had put together and debated over a few.

We have updated the spreadsheet and is now available for everyone to review.

From a teams perspective, the next stage is to start wire framing and looking at the flow of the project.

If anyone has any ideas how to do wire framing in a collaborative manner, please let me know.

It will also be good to get someone with some UXUX UX is an acronym for User Experience - the way the user uses the UI. Think ‘what they are doing’ and less about how they do it. knowledge to review our wireframes so we don’t make something awful to use.

Till next time!
