Theme Developer Handbook Status Report

A lot of activity has been happening in the THB lately. We’re migrating away from the spreadsheet which is pretty unapproachable and overwhelming to contributors and utilized Trello to help us finish the THB. We’ve got about 70% of the spreadsheet migrated.

In the navigation above under “Handbooks” you’ll notice that the spreadsheet has been deprecated and there is a new menu item called “Contribute to the Theme Developer Handbook.” This item will take you to the trello board.

Now that we have our new system in place, we’re in need of contributors! If you know of anyone that is interested in helping out please point them to the trello board. There are instructions on how to gain access to the appropriate sites and a step by step guide on how to contribute.

We are putting the tutorial side of the THB on hold until v 1.0 ships. All tutorial sections are housed on this page until we can reintegrate it with the THB. This setup will allow us to create a consistent and full step by step guide. Additionally, any usable material that is getting cut out of the THB is going onto this page in case we need it in the future.

We also are doing weekly google hangout meetings on Wednesdays from 12-2pm PDT to offer any training on trello, questions on contributing, and setting aside a time to actually work on the THB. Feel free to join us!

There is also a meetup in the Seattle area and one in South Sound which you can checkout.

In a nutshell:

Please please contribute! 🙂 Also, we welcome any feedback on the contributing process. Please reach out to @lizkaraffa or @sewmyheadon over slack with your comments/suggestions/pain points/etc. Thanks!
