Docs Meetup Roundup – Oct 24, 2013

First, thanks to @kimparsell for leading last week’s chat and posting in my stead while I was out of town.

Here’s what happened this week in our chat. If you’re interested, you can read the full chat logs.

1. DevHub

@saracannon and @sams posted new DevHub design mockups and would like your feedback at:

2. Epub Docs

As @kimparsell noted last week, there was an offer to publish the WP Docs in epub format, but unfortunately, it required proprietary code, which is a no-go 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., so we won’t be pursuing this at this time.

3. Inline Docs

@kimparsell is working to finalize the standards change re: the parser and they’re making steady progress; currently at 73 files completed, 185 files total (39.45%)

4. 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. Sofia Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus.

@kimparsell and @sewmyheadon have posted here on with some guidance for the contributors at WordCamp Sofia for Inline Docs and Handbooks.

5. WordPress 3.7

@DrewAPicture and @ipstenu whipped the Codex WordPress 3.7 page in the Codex into shape. Great job!

6. Docs Sprints

Had a Docs Sprint last weekend and had four contributors working on the Handbooks. Thanks to all who showed up!

We’re still holding two Docs Sprints per month that anyone can join via IRC or in-person if you’re in Seattle. Would love to get some more participation so feel free to join us in IRC on Nov. 2 at 10am Pacific (5pm UTC).
