Handbooks Chat: 19th Feb 2014

@sewmyheadon, @blobaugh, and, @hanni had our first checkin yesterday.

  1. Stated utility and purpose of the meetings: to support each other as far as possible, and ensure we’re all the right track with regards to the goals of the handbooks, focusing on incremental progress rather than becoming bogged down with concern over current timeline.
    @hanni’s purpose to allow each editor to focus on their handbook whilst watching for potential problems or unwanted divergences, reviewing diffs on an at least weekly basis and helping out with editing when and as she can.
  2. Agreed on the provisional contents the reference portion of 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 cut up by @blobaugh and @hanni).
  3. Started on new spreadsheet for the Plugin Developer Handbook to reflect structure update and porting of existing content (links forthcoming).
  4. @sewmyheadon will be meeting with @philiparthurmoore to integrate the ThemeShaper tutorials and restructure Theme Developer Handbook as needed over the next ten days or so.
  5. Welcomed new contributor @lorax who’ll be attending the docs chat today to get involved!
