Docs Chat: Mar. 27, 2014

Thank you to everyone who came. For anyone unable to attend, you can read the logs here.

The following is a summary of the topics that were discussed.

1. DevHub: @siobhan said there are two issues left to address with the parser. Once that is finished, attention turns to completing the handbook and code reference themes. (3/25/2014 team meeting summary)

2. Admin Help: @jazzs3quence said they are looking back at the original user testing videos, and prepping for new user tests. They have received some good feedback on the list of admin tasks. Starting this week, the weekly meeting on Mondays will be held at 17:30 UTC.

3. Handbooks: @blobaugh said he received an email from @jdgrimes, offering to donate some tutorials on unit testing for 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 Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party Developer Handbook. @sewmyheadon said there is nothing new to report on the Theme Developer Handbook. He said the next Docs Meetup in Seattle is April 5th, and hopes for another good turnout to work on both handbooks. You can attend in person in Seattle, or remotely in the #wordpress-sfd IRC channel.

4. Codex Updates for 3.9: The Codex will need to be updated after 3.9 is released. @siobhan suggested we go back to doing a virtual sprint for the updates. We can build the task list for the sprint from the 3.9 version page that @DrewAPicture is working on.

5. Upcoming Docs Conferences: I posted earlier this week about upcoming docs conferences. @siobhan will be speaking at Write The Docs in Portland in May. I’ll be attending the OpenHelp conference in Cincinnati in June. OpenHelp contacted @siobhan about whether we plan to send a team and/or sponsor this year’s conference in Cincinnati.

6. Docs Chat Time Change: Starting this week, the meeting time will shift to 23:00 UTC on Thursday to get us back to our old schedule – 4pm PDT, 5pm MDT, 7pm EDT, 12am London (Friday).
