Gutenberg testing planning group chat

As the GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ project develops, it’s now time to think about a testing plan. A way to get this tested on as many users as possible, on as many environments as possible.

As a first step, come and join the first Gutenberg testing planning group chat at 19:00 UTC on Wednesday. Join #core-flow to get the link to the group chat just before it starts – it will also be added as a comment here.

Why a chat to plan? Coming up with a scalable plan on how to progress testing is important. A few points for discussion:

  • What are our initial testing goals?
  • What format should the testing be in?
  • How do we reach outside WordPress to test with as many people as possible?
  • How do we scale testing?
  • How can we improve gathering feedback

… If there are any other points you think we should add please put them as a comment.

This chat will be recorded and a video put up after to ensure that everyone gets a chance to keep up. Notes will also be taken.

From this chat a plan will be formed that will be posted for iteration from feedback. This will then form the structure for testing Gutenberg.
