Docs Meetup Roundup – Oct 10, 2013

1. DevHub

@rarst and @toscho are both now working 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.

2. Handbooks

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. EU worked on 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 Handbook.

Virtual Docs MeetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on will help you find options in your area. worked primarily on Theme Developer Handbook.

3. Virtual Docs Sprint

The first virtual Docs Sprint went well and we had 5 or 6 contributors from three different countries. 🙂

Got feedback from one contributor that virtual meetups can be boring unless you’re already working on something; so we’ll likely even meet in-person (in the Seattle area) on virtual docs meetup days. Would love to see other contributors organize their own local in-person Docs Sprints.

We have another Docs Sprint this Sunday, October 20th so join us on IRC or in-person, if you’re in the Seattle area.

4. Theme School Curriculum

@courtneydawn and @sewmyheadon met on IRC during the Meetup and looked at both the Theme Dev Handbook and Theme School Curriculum and see significant overlap, so we’re going to review both efforts and see how we can leverage good content in both places without duplicating work.

5. Inline Docs

@kimparsell reports that they’re still plugging away and got new contributors from both WCTO and WCEU (yea!).  Thanks contributors!

Current status: 67 of 184 files complete (~36%).

Have a great week!
