Recap of April 25, 2017 Meeting

@coachwp took the lead on this meeting in @chanthaboune‘s absence, welcoming some new and returning attendees.

Lesson Plan Updates

@jenwill mentioned that she may soon be looking for feedback on the progress of the Enqueuing Scripts and Styles Lesson Plan she’s working on.

No other updates on new/assigned Lesson Plans.

 

@donkiely asked if there was any update on why the images are returning 404 errors. No-one on the meeting had any additional information and agreed to wait for an update from @chanthaboune.

@coffee2code later responded with an update: Images have to be restored and a request sits with Systems to look into it.

Copyediting Updates

@mike_piercy noticed some grammatical errors on some pages and @juliekuehl granted access edit to update.

@awakekat noticed some editing required on the Child-Theme quiz questions. @donkiely confirmed that this was marked as needing revision.

Q&A and Announcements

@juliekuehl asked if anyone knew if there was anything happening at Summit regarding Training. No-one on the meeting knew and @coachwp reverts this question back to @chanthaboune

Recap of April 18, 2017 Meeting

Lesson Plan Updates

Per @chanthaboune, these are lesson plans started but may need taking over:

  • Theme Internationalization
  • Enqueueing Scripts
  • Basic Theme Config
  • Speaker Lesson Plans
  • Finding and Using Theme Documentation
  • Theme Documentation

@donkiely gave an update on the Enqueuing Scripts and Styles lesson plan

@jenwill offered to take on completing the Enqueuing Scripts and Styles lesson plan. Yay!

@donkiely updated on his lesson plan reviews.

  • Conditional Tags – good shape, although uses theme files from Twenty Fourteen. Worth it to update those?
  • Custom Post Types – I just copyedited that in January, so it’s still good
  • Customizer: Taglines – did some light copyediting, but couldn’t finish since images are broken

@chanthaboune will give @donkiely access to the spreadsheet to directly update (and expanded all the rows so that he knows just how much work he’s gotten himself into!)
Led to a quick discussion about the missing images in P2. @chanthaboune will ping Scott-not-@coachwp about it.

The Style Guide is updated with the “built using” item in the Teacher Notes section.

Copyediting Updates

@mike_piercy is getting into copyediting and had some questions about navigation (the Next/Previous buttons that go to parent sections, not the next lesson plan; looks like the links are broken) and Online Tutorials.

@donkiely slacked off this week

Training Updates

@coachwp had some feedback about training the Dashboard lesson plan. Went very well, and it doesn’t need any changes. Next week he’ll be doing some training on themes.

Q&A and Announcements

@chanthaboune said that the WordPress Foundation intends to do some CMS agnostic, Open Source trainings this year in non-US locations. The plan is to use the lesson plans we’ve created for that, so we should probably take a look at those and see that they are all up to date/ready for use. @mike_piercy offered to help with the use of non-US English.

@jenwill pointed out that there are some contradictory times listed for the weekly Tuesday meeting. @chanthaboune is on it.

Recap of March 21, 2017 Meeting

@donkiely finished copyediting Improving Site Performance LP and is looking for feedback. He notes: I’m not sure that it couldn’t use an overhaul. It takes a rather conceptual approach rather than a hands-on walkthrough. First I’ve seen like that, so I’m not sure if that’s what we want. I feel like it needs fleshing out. There are some steps that can be demonstrated and not just talked about. I suppose it’s okay as an overview, so maybe a follow-on lesson that digs deeper?

See LP at https://make.wordpress.org/training/handbook/plugin-lessons/improving-site-performance/

@bethsoderberg, can you update Trello with this information?

@coachWP reported an excellent first session of his WordPress class for high school students using training team materials.

@chanthaboune wondered if we’re at a point right now where we can maybe backburner the creation of new individual lesson plans and instead focus on really getting the workshops into a polished state. The idea being that if we have them polished up and useable, we may get more proof of concept after they are used/tested.

@melindahelt shared https://www.raspberrypi.org/magpi/blog-box-wordpress/ as a potential way to have some tech workshops create and install WordPress to have a local install to work on.

@donkiely will work on auditing lessons that have not been copy edited since the last release to flag any lessons that should be updated based on the new features.

Recap of March 14, 2017 meeting

Lesson Plan Update

None.

Copyediting

@Donkiely said the Themes/Plugins Relationship lesson plan (https://make.wordpress.org/training/handbook/theme-school/themesplugins-relationship/) is copyedited but really needs someone knowledgeable in the subject to go over it. The LP seems more like an outline than a finished product.

@coachwp agreed. Paul and I worked on that and it might need more information.

@chantaboune volunteered to take a look at it.

@donkiely copyediting site performance LP.

Question regarding customizing header and background images and if it had been edited. @skarjune had fixed some problem found earlier and @estes.chris went over it as copyeditor.

Testing Updates

@coachwp did High Level Overview and One Touch Install using Bluehost and both went well. Question is being written up by @melindahelt.

Q&A/Announcements

@chanthaboune asked if we should be working to help create some movement around learn.wordpress.com work. @bethsoderberg replied: I think it would be super helpful if people workshopped a plan around how to present the completed lesson plans, perhaps a list of suggested workshops or a new teacher’s guide, etc.

@melindahelt pointed out that Trello cards can’t be edited. Thought is that it may be because people have to be granted membership, which is limited in free version. @melindahelt and @bethsoderberg will research further.

@melindahelt wondered if we would move the meeting due to DST.

Voted to vote. Discussion switched to audit of discussion times for everyone. Final decision was to meet at the same time DST.

Recap of March 7 Meeting

Lesson Plan Updates

None given.

Copyediting Updates

@donkiely: Finished the WooCommerce plan. Many changes, so a review is needed.

@bethsoderberg will mark it in need of review.

Testing Updates

@coachwp giving first session in NYC Mar. 8.

@skarjune started ongoing between workshop on WordPress Content Management with a focus group of 4 communications professionals.

This continued with a discussion of confusion between .com and .org, and between WordPress and commercial site builders. @skarjune is starting with getting a wordpress.com account as an introduction into the ecosystem. Also discussed is the differences in the admin interfaces and how that can be confusing to a person new to WordPress.

WCEU Community Summit

@chanthaboune and @bethsoderberg are trying to dig up the suggested topics from a CSV and PDF. Request for more topics.

@chanthaboune wondered if @wpaleks and @juliekuel would be available.

@bethsoderberg: one suggested topic is: Certification / Gamification / Testing / Whatever

@bethsoderberg, viewing Preview of CSV/PDF files, found several that were just titles with no description and tagged with other a bunch of other teams.

@bethsoderberg: I think it’s hard to propose much given that we know most of us won’t be there.

@chanthaboune agrees and suggest that we not have any topics but that she come as a rep proxy.

@bethsoderberg suggest a virtual “team summit” video meeting after WCEU to have an open forum with this team. Cannot talk about things discussed at WCEU because of safe spaces rule.

@donkiely: Is Trello current on what LPs are ready for copyediting.

@bethsoderberg: It is unless there are updates from last week.

@donkiely to update on some that he may grab

@esteschris: copyediting is done on https://make.wordpress.org/training/handbook/theme-school/customizer-header-and-background-images/

@morganestes tested https://make.wordpress.org/training/handbook/user-lessons/choosing-and-installing-a-theme/ at the OKCWP meetup Feb. 27. There’s a typo on the quiz that mixes up the right answer numbers, but the rest of the content in the lesson plan is good. The quiz is at https://make.wordpress.org/training/handbook/user-lessons/choosing-and-installing-a-theme/#quiz
