There’s a community summit next week after WordCamp 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. SF for those who don’t know. During this day we break into small meetings to discuss big picture items. These topics touch the entire community. In this case I’m specifically looking at adding more core Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. development topics to the list, because it’s pretty barren right now.
Here’s some thoughts we covered two years ago at the last official summit. The timing of this, for reference, was about three months after 3.4 came out, and two months before 3.5 came out. I pulled this off the schedule:
Here’s some potential topics that have been proposed:
Some other ones that I’m now proposing:
- After PHP The web scripting language in which WordPress is primarily architected. WordPress requires PHP 5.6.20 or higher 5.2
- i18n/multilingual roadmap
- multisite roadmap, 2.0
- next steps for updates (or: how can we auto update everything)
And now I toss it to you: what else should be on this list? Quick, you have a few hours before the initial schedule is built.
I’m reading through all of the relevant documents from the summit in 2012, and attendees for this year’s summit, you should too. I linked all of them above in the first set of bullets.
If you are not attending WCSF this year, you can ignore this post. If you are coming and planning to participate as part of the core Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. team, please click through and read it all. 🙂
Heads up, core team! We’re getting ready to publish details about the plans for WordCamp this October (which includes a mini team meetup), so if you’re thinking of attending, please read the post at https://make.wordpress.org/updates/2014/06/12/wordcamp-san-francisco-travel-contributor-days/ and take the short survey linked at the end of it so I’ll know how many team members to plan for (don’t worry, this isn’t a commitment or anything, I just need to get some rough numbers for budgeting purposes). Thanks!
Matt announced today at the 2011 State of the Word This is the annual report given by Matt Mullenweg, founder of WordPress at WordCamp US. It looks at what we’ve done, what we’re doing, and the future of WordPress. https://wordpress.tv/tag/state-of-the-word/. that plugins and themes are now hidden from the search results (on both WordPress.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/ and in the plugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party/theme install screens) if they have not been updated in two years.
For plugins only: Older plugins that are still compatible and secure only need to have their “requires” and “tested up to” version numbers bumped. If you do this, actually releasing a new version of the plugin is not necessary, so leave the version number the same.
Yo yo. Call for speakers for WCSF. Note that this year devs are the main attraction (Saturday at conference center is all dev, plus hack days before/after). http://2011.sf.wordcamp.org/call-for-speakers/
Who should we put on stage (and subsequently on wordpress.tv) to inspire developers?
