Marketing WordPress to Developers

This subgroup focuses on providing development–related information, technical use cases and examples, technical best practices, and in general help developers understand how, when, and why to use WordPress when developing websites. Providing information for theme and plugin developers would also fall in this category.

Read about the other marketing subgroups in our new handbook we’re building.

Today’s Meeting

As local WordCamps continue to host contributor days or tracks, we’ve noticed a bit of frustration in the onboarding process. We decided to tackle getting on WordPress, Slack, and Trac in the following documents. We’ll write the copy and ping Community.

We decided to write a marketing brief for onboarding to make.wordpress.org which we submitted to meta’s trac.

We also made a Trello card for Navigating Trac, requested from some of the Core folks.

Also, we are finalizing and reviewing the copy for Why WordPress.

We will not meet again before Contributor Day for WCUS, so if you plan to be there, some of these projects are a great place to get started.

Meeting Recap

@iviolini added suggestion to wishlist and created a Trello card.
Provide feature and future functionality information to community through regular channels

@mcdwayne points out building personas:
A persona is a global description of a type of ideal client clone of image editor personas.

Mentioned persona’s Trello card examples.

Marketing to Developers Trello board is here.

  • @vishalmukadam ask what is a persona:
  • And one the best explanation was given by @nagpai:
    Different profiles of developers who use WordPress to build websites. Personas are profiles with a name and personality attributed so that it becomes easy to “talk” to them and device communication.
  • @mcdwayne And in one line “what a developer looks like.”
  • @yvettesonneveld also explained in a good way.
  • @hardeep Are designers and freelancers counted in this persona list or is it strictly developers?
    @skarjune Says those are traditional job labels but the workflow and deliverables to clients have changed in the WP ecosystem.
  • @nagpai explains there are two types
    • I could think of two types of developers.
      1. Coding school – Traditional coders who did PHP or other platforms earlier and now use WordPress as a ready framework.
      2. Power user school – The likes of Matt who began as content writers and went about improvising or building something that suits their needs, one step at a time.

This meeting was attended by @bridgetwillard @mcdwayne @vishalmukadam @iviolini @skarjune @nagpai @yvettesonneveld and @hardeepasrani.

Team Infrastructure

Coming off of WCEU’s contributor Day, we as a Marketing Team as a whole, are working on systems and processes to help our meetings be more productive. To that end, we are working on making the meetings more efficient and focused (see this Google Doc).

Feedback, as always, is welcomed.

Several things were discussed in today’s meeting lead by @mcdwayne.

  • We now have Trello Boards thanks to Contributor Day efforts. This is the one for this subgroup.
  • We are working on developing a persona document to help us focus our efforts.
  • We have also started two tasks in the Meta Marketing Board for onboarding and how we run our meetings.

Note: Trello boards are public but you must have an account to contribute. Please PM @yvettesonneveld and she’ll add you to the Developer board.

See you next month!
