Design triage learning session on August 6th

During the weekly meeting a week ago, there was interest in having a video learning session using Zoom for design triage. This would be how to contribute using both TracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub. and also GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. for GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. It is aimed at being for designers who want to learn more about what triage is and how to use Trac and GitHub, but anyone is welcome.

Some points suggested to cover are:

  • What the life is of a ticket or an issue.
  • What labelling means: specifically what ones designers need to know.
  • How trac works for tickets.
  • How GitHub works for Gutenberg issues.
  • How design triage sessions work.

The session with be on August 6th at 16:30 – 17:30 UTC. This will run instead of the usual triage session and be an hour long. Zoom will be used for the session over SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at, the idea being to ‘see’ and screen share.

A link will be given as a comment here and in 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. #design before the start of the meeting. You will need to have the Zoom software installed to join.

In order to make this a session that everyone attending gains the most from I would love to know what you would like to see covered in this session. The session itself will have a format but questions along the way are most welcome.
