Live onboarding sessions for the Documentation team

We are organising onboarding sessions for everyone interested in getting started with the Documentation team. We know that our “Getting started” documentation is out of date and getting involved can be very confusing and frustrating so we hope to ease the process with live sessions via Zoom.

Sessions will be short, 10-20 minutes, covering one documentation project at a time. All sessions will be recorded and published at WordPress.tv. This means that you can watch them over and over again, at your own leisure. If you want to actively participate in sessions and ask questions, you are very much welcome to do so.

All sessions will happen via Zoom. You do not need zoom.us account, browser is enough. You may choose to turn your camera and mic on or off, whichever works best for you.

Developer documentation – BlockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. 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. editor handbook
