New Person Thread

  • @Ali-WPFiddlyBits — Hi, it’s Alison from #WCLDN. @siobhanseija — It’s great that @Ali-WPFiddlyBits joined in today. At WordCamp London, she worked on one of the case studies. I haven’t looked into it yet so I’m not sure of its status right now. I think someone was checking it!

Celebration/Achievements in the Last Week

  • @siobhanseija — While catching up with what happened in the marketing channel earlier, I was very happy about the sub-meetings in the channel. I think those are great!
  • I “pitched” my first company in the wild on the WordPress showcase hopeful to get a submission from them shortly.

Task Lead Updates

  • @maedahbatool — I have started working on this card → https://trello.com/c/y60QTWFc/261-wordpress-translation-day-4-blog-post. Managed to get one of the Locale Manager for Translation @saqibameen on board. He’ll be working with me on this. Hopefully, we’ll be able to get the final draft ready by next week. Since we are approaching May 11th.
  • @siobhanseija — That’s great Maedah! I was asking @abhanonstopnewsuk how this was coming along as indeed, the date is getting closer.
  • @swinterroth — I’m still curious about this item, wasn’t sure if a status meeting was ever planned with @abhanonstopnewsuk: https://trello.com/c/cTgoVoy4.
  • @siobhanseija — I think @abhanonstopnewsuk is very happy that you’d like to join this project! She won’t be able to make today’s meeting as she’s out for a few days. I think she’ll be back this weekend. So maybe you could start by reading what’s already there and maybe writing up some of your thoughts? Then Abha can help you jump right in when she gets back.
  • @siobhanseija — (Sorry no Trello card, will make one right now) I did a quick read of @ndidinkabu’s blog post about WC London, which is a really nice overview of her experiences there. I think this is great for people that are hesitant about contributor days! I’d like to add a bit of text to introduce her story and explain what CD is and why we’re sharing her story. Then I’ll share it with @abhanonstopnewsuk for a final check and it’ll be ready to publish asap.
  • @harryjackson1221 — Submit a Site wireframe https://trello.com/c/RoESDCbZ/12-submit-a-site-wireframe. This week, we met Monday regarding the Showcase Action Plan. Since it was a Holiday, there was not many of us. We are closer to agreeing on the form content and should be able to wrap that up in the coming week. For anyone that wants to attend, it is in this channel on Monday, 2 PM UTC (10 AM EST)! This is a great way to get started contributing if you are new.
  • @siobhanseija — Here’s an update from @abhanonstopnewsuk who couldn’t attend today’s meeting: The next series of video interviews have been produced. The production of Video interviews with Sabrina Zeidan, Dan Maby and Gary Jones have been completed and were published on WordPress.TV earlier in the month. https://trello.com/c/L6zZr4FK. We are working on subtitling of these videos. If anyone would like to assist with subtitling these short videos or one of our longer interviews which are being finalized, please reply to this thread or contact @abhanonstopnewsuk or @siobhanseija on how to get started with Amara for subtitling. Thanks especially to @Rubio for his ongoing work on this series.
  • @harryjackson1221 — Gutendev Case Study https://trello.com/c/xcoEwXFj/8-gutendev-case-study-submitted-by-gutendevcom. @makewebbetter has begun working on this case study, so I am going to add you to the card as the task lead and move it into “In Progress”. If you need any assistance, feel free to message me, I am glad to help out! I will also email them in the coming week, to see if we can get more information from them on their project.
