Docs at WCSF

As I’m sure you all know, there will be a summit + contributor working days following WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. San Francisco this year. We should decide in advance what we are going to do. We have two working days (Tuesday & Wednesday) during which to tackle docs stuff.

My own feeling is that by Tuesday we’ll be pretty much talked out so I don’t think spending the two days in discussions about docs would be that productive. Instead, we should come up with a project in advance and spend the two days actively working on it. I think it would be best if we all worked together as a team on one single project, rather than working on different things.

Let’s use this thread to discuss ideas. Here are some possibilities:

  • Complete the handbooks – complete all of the content in the handbooks, review content, and make sure that V1 is 100% shipped.
  • Code Reference MigrationMigration Moving the code, database and media files for a website site from one server to another. Most typically done when changing hosting companies. – migration of content from the code references in the Codex to the code reference, including reviewing content, adding examples, and setting up redirects from the Codex
  • Support Hub – start making plans for a new support hub. Sketch out new content. Write content. Get someone to work on designs.
  • Codex cleanup – review of Codex content – editing, truncating, deleting pages that are out of date.

Please make your own suggestions – the sky’s the limit, though remember that we have two days and it’s off the back of WCSF and the summit, so be realistic 🙂

We should come to a consensus in the next few weeks so we can plan how to best use our time over the two days.

Also, can you please leave a note to say if you’re attending WCSF so we know how many team members we’ll have there. And can you note if you’re involved with any other teams and, if you are, how much of your time you think will be dedicated to that team.
