Dev requirements for

As per this post on the Community P2, we are going to be using to host the workshops that will be made available to the community.

The Training team has been working on a new site design, which is on a demo server here: with the code available on GitHub. We have tacit confirmation from @chetan200891 to collaborate with the Training team on making this site a hub for WordPress learning – including the excellent lesson plans that they have been working on, and these new workshops along with planning for synchronous discussion groups around the content.

The next step here is to finish the work on the learn site (which already looks fantastic) so that it meets the requirements that we need. This includes:

  • A new CPT and taxonomyTaxonomy A taxonomy is a way to group things together. In WordPress, some common taxonomies are category, link, tag, or post format. for workshops (I don’t think a full-featured LMS is necessary at this stage, but we may want to consider thsat for the future)
  • Frontend layouts for the new and existing CPTs
  • An additional call to action on the home page that directs people to the workshop content
  • A link to an external scheduling platform for discussion groups

Please discuss any further dev requirements in comments on this post.

I’m very excited about this platform and the collaboration between Community and Training on the work here!

/cc The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. (since we’ll need design work done on this too)
