Devchat agenda, July 27, 2022

1. Welcome

Last week’s summary.

To continue a theme: devchat is not just for release squads or project leaders, or coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. committers and component maintainers. Did you know that when you sign up for a WordPress 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/. account, the first channel you join, by default, is the Core channel?

That should tell you: devchat is for everyone who has any interest in the WordPress project—which means you. And when you give your valuable time to join the meeting, that’s a pretty big compliment to the people who are there too. So if you typically come as an observer, let the group know you value that hour in the day enough to spend it with them. And say hey, with a hand-wave or some other emoji.

Devchat agenda, July 20, 2022

Last week’s summary.

1. Welcome

Seriously. Devchat is NOT a meeting just for senior developers, or component maintainers, or champion coders, or people in leadership roles — though it is a good place to find people like that. Devchat is for anyone who cares about WordPress, whether you can write a line of code or not.

In short, Devchat is for you. So please say hello with an emoji — a waving hand 👋, or something that’s special for you. For example, @marybaum almost always joins a meeting with 🎾, and @sergeybiryukov signs in with a ❤️.

2. Announcements

If you have an announcement, make it here.

If you’d like to have someone at the meeting make it for you, leave it in the comments.

3. Blogblog (versus network, site) posts of note

A Week in Core, from @audrasjb

Please list other posts in the comments.

4. Upcoming releases

The next major is 6.1.

The next minor is 6.0.2.

If you have an update for the group about either release, please plan to be at the chat. If participants have a question, and you are likely to have the answer, you may well get a pingPing The act of sending a very small amount of data to an end point. Ping is used in computer science to illicit a response from a target server to test it’s connection. Ping is also a term used by Slack users to @ someone or send them a direct message (DM). Users might say something along the lines of “Ping me when the meeting starts.” asking if you’re in the house.

5. WCUS 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/.

What would you like to see at the CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. contributor table? @marybaum has some thoughts. Let’s take a minute and talk about yours too!

6. Open floor

Component maintainers and early tickets get priority; after that, it’s up to you! If you leave your item in the comments, you will get time.
