HelpHub Meeting Recap, Jan. 26: Development kickoff

Thanks to everyone who was present for the first HelpHub meeting of 2016. It was great to get things going again for the year. Read the meeting agenda and the Slack logs (login required to view chat logs).

We didn’t actually discuss the content planning side of things, as there were a couple of people who need to be involved there who were unable to make the meeting. We should be hitting that next week though.

Ultimately what we finalised at this meeting was the development team as well as the development workflow for the project. You will find all of this info on the HelpHub GitHub repo.

Aside from that the development flow as well as the project collaborators are listed on the GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers.

Note that next week’s meeting may be 1 hour earlier – I just need to confirm if that will work for the key players before I schedule it, but I will post the agenda (with the meeting time) at least 24 hours before the it starts.
