Design Meeting Notes for 26 February 2020

These are the weekly notes for the design meeting that happens on Wednesdays. You can read the full transcript on our Slack channel and find the meeting’s agenda here.


We are still looking for volunteers to help run meetings and triage, as well as notetakers. If you are interested in helping, lets us know in the comments.



@bemdesign shared an external post with us to show how much we have improved on 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. and the positive effect that it has had on the community

We also mentioned that WordPress 5.4 Beta 3 was released yesterday and invited contributors to help with testing and bugs.

It was also shared a post on the Findings in the reclassification of documentation and mentioned that contributors have been working since 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. Vienna on it but we still need more contributors to help reclassify the 170+ articles.

@bemdesign invited the design team to participate in accessibility bug scrubs on Fridays at 15:00 UTC, followed by a team meeting at 16:00 UTC
