🐝-Docs Team Sprint Feb 25, 2021

🐝-docs stands for Block-Editor End User documentation.

What makes Contributor Days at WordCamps such a great event is the concerted focused time and working alongside of each other in person. You meet teammates from around the world, you can get instant answers to questions, help when you get stuck and have short discussions on important issues. It does wonders to motivation, productivity and camaraderie. Just because there aren’t any in-person WordCamps, doesn’t mean we can’t have remote Contributor Days, I call ’em a Team Sprints. It might be the next best thing.

So, dear team members, Contributors, current and future once, you are invited to join us for our next sprint on February 25, 2021. To accommodate different time zones, there will be two 2-hour sessions, starting at

The Team Sprint will be held on Zoom and the URLs will be published on Thursday in #meta-helphub channel an hour before the session. The accompanying chat will also take place in #meta-helphub, so contributors joining us asynchronously can leave comments and questions, too. Follow-ups can then happen in #meta-helphub threads.


The topics will mostly be determined by the people able to join us, and what we would want to work on the next two hours. These are only suggestions, covering all four projects and more.

  • Onboarding of new contributors
  • Virtual walk through our tools and documents (TrelloTrello Project management system using the concepts of boards and cards to organize tasks in a sane way.

The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience., Handbook, Google Docs, using a test site etc)
  • Early peak on Scheduling updates to published posts on WordPress.org (demo)

What else do you want to talk about? Leave questions and suggestions in the comments or on #meta-helphub

Hope to see many teammates on Thursday.

PS: Yes, there is also a coffee break scheduled for Thursday. It gives you an opportunity to hang out with the rest of the docs team! It’s way too early for me, though.
