Docs Team Coffee Break for February 2020

I came online at the scheduled time but did not see anyone joining. So I waited and sent a message across my workplace, weDevs which resulted in a few of my colleagues joining instantly.

We mostly talked about how to become a Documentation Contributor and what projects are there to contribute. I tried to answer various questions ranging from the Handbook to the weekly meeting. All contributors were encouraged to attend the weekly meetings.

We thank @atiktonmoy, @thisisyeasin, @reachmazharul & @gtarafdarr for joining the Docs Team Coffee Break for 2021. We invite all of you to join the coffee break for March 2021 as it progresses from planning to execution.

Summary of Docs Team Virtual Coffee Break: January 2021

The virtual coffee break for January happened on the 29th instant from 15:00 UTC to 15:30 UTC as per schedule. I facilitated the session with only Estela Rueda answering the call. We understand the fact that a lot of our regular contributors aren’t back from holidays yet and as the second wave of COVID is emerging in different parts of the world it is becoming a lot difficult that we can imagine for contributors to join in.

During the session we had a casual discussion about our lives and we tried to reflect on the collaborations that we contributed to during last year. We talked about family and friends including our journey for the documentation regarding the projects that we are working on. Personally it was great for me to receive first-hand advice from Estela about contributing to open sourceOpen Source Open Source denotes software for which the original source code is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified. Open Source **must be** delivered via a licensing model, see GPL. and WordPress.

P.S. Even though Estela asked me not to write a p2 or post screenshots from our virtual coffee break, I thought it would be a good practice to continue with the tradition of having an update for the team. I hope she won’t mind. Thank you all and stay safe!

Docs Team Monthly Virtual Coffee Break: January 2021

What is a Virtual Coffee Break

Coffee Breaks are informal discussions taking place in a Zoom call for 30 minutes among regular and new contributors to the Make WordPress Docs Team. We have an ongoing agenda which can be traced back to the most recent meeting summary to help facilitate the process. Currently @sukafia and @chaion07 are volunteering to take care of the responsibilities. We’ve also had @estelaris hosting one the coffee break for November last year. Join the next coffee break and express your interest should you wish to host one in the coming months.

What happens in a Coffee Break?

Contributors engage in casual and fun conversations in a safe virtual environment. We ask ice breaker questions to build rapport among each other that have resulted in a better sense of understanding with each other amidst the global pandemic that we are facing currently. Now is the time to support our contributors more than ever and the coffee break creates a difference simply by creating a scope and opportunity to hear one another out. You can join in and hang out with fellow contributors to the Make WordPress Global Documentation Team.

Past Coffee Breaks

We have a few summary dedicated to the coffee break sessions. Here are some examples:

Answering questions about our lives

I had the pleasure to put my online photography skills to test that I acquired through volunteering for WordCamp Europe online 2020 by capturing a few virtual selfies with permission from the participants. Thanks to @estelaris, @chaion07, @sukafia, @tacitonic & @kafleg for joining us.

Docs Team Coffee Break November Update!

Hello Folks,

As we inch closer to a second wave of COVID, it has become more important than ever to stand next to our fellow contributors. The idea of having a monthly informal discussion in the form of a ‘Virtual Coffee Break’ experience is something we are finding rather helpful while trying to maintain proper social distancing. Even though we would hope for majority of our fellow contributors to join in and support the same concept it may not always be the case. Understanding this, the team came up with the idea of rotation in the timing to serve multiple time zones. Additionally, we expect to write a dedicated p2 post with the information covering the Docs Team Coffee Break.
