Weekly Handbooks Check-in

It’s time to get back on the handbook bandwagon, folks!

We’re starting a weekly check-in meeting between those responsible for the progress of a number of the handbooks, @hanni (general helper), @sewmyheadon (editor of the Theme Developer Handbook), and @blobaugh (editor of the 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 WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party Developer Handbook), and anyone else who is both interested in the progress of the above, and wishes to find out more about getting involved.

The goal of this status meeting is to ensure that we’re keeping an eye on content coming in, making the requisite progress (here’s to getting back the momentum we lost!), doing all we can to support both current, and potential contributors. Most importantly, we want to keep the outlines of the handbooks on track to meet the common goals of outlining the process to build both a theme and plugin for those newer to the process, whilst also providing an appropriate level of reference for those familiar more familiar with theme and plugin development. More to come on this subject.

Please feel free to join, it’ll be in #wordpress-sfd at 5PM Pacific, every Wednesday. Open to all!
