Updates from Design Team

@zetaraffix shared 2 mocks for the front page and asked for feedback.

I would like to focus on pushing the data visualization as much as we can, giving last year’s work an updated look but without wasting too much time on disruption.

@ibdz shared his Design Proposal slide deck


Some ideas:

The team continued discussion after the meeting about the direction.

Livestream Session Idea

@tobifjellner‘s idea: collect i18nInternationalization Internationalization (sometimes shortened to I18N , meaning “I - eighteen letters -N”) is the process of planning and implementing products and services so that they can easily be adapted to specific local languages and cultures, a process called localization. This is the process of making software translatable. Information about Internationalization for developers can be found in the Developer’s handbooks. questions from developers (on the wptranslationday.org website?) and have an interactive Q&A/AMA panel.

Updates from Outreach Team

@jordicuevas is working on call for local event organizers P2p2 "p2" is the name of the theme that blogs at make.wordpress.org use (and o2 is the accompanying plugin). When asked to post something "on the p2" by a member of the Polyglots team, that usually means you're asked to post on the team blog https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/. post and will be sharing the draft (Google Docs) with @webcommsat.
