Docs Meetup Roundup – Sept 26, 2013

1. DevHub Landing Page

On 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. – we’ve got some landing page designs from @saracannon so things are going in the right direction.  Here’s the writeup from last meeting.

2. Theme School Curriculum

Theme School Curriculum is happening on make/community. I’ll get in touch with Courtney to see how we might help each other.

3. Theme & PluginPlugin 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 Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party Developer Handbooks

We’re making slow progress on the Handbooks. Two monthly Docs Meetups are working on Handbooks to drive progress.

Was some discussion about if/how to add Theme Hook Alliance to the Theme Dev Handbook and we decided that we’ll add it as a resource link rather than featuring a page.

There’s also an in-person Docs Meetup two weeks later and we’re always on IRC, so feel free to join in there too. The more participation, the faster we’ve got a terrific resource in the Handbooks.
