Workshop Revision and Updates:

Should we revise old videos, create new videos, or create supplementary videos?

  • UIUI UI is an acronym for User Interface - the layout of the page the user interacts with. Think ‘how are they doing that’ and less about what they are doing. sometimes changes subtly from when a workshop is originally published to the present
  • Text/Screenshots are easy to change; videos take a lot more work
    • QueryLoop UI has changed; the entire video had to be redone, including transcript and subtitles.
    • It’s difficult to replace videos on WordPress.tv, and old videos may be referenced other places, such as in courses
    • This feels like too much work for a small change.
  • Suggestions to fix this issue: Add supplementary videos; include WordPress version in each video to avoid confusion; reach out to video creators to edit their videos (who have the option to pass it along to someone else if they no longer want to work on a video they created)
  • What types of changes merit video updates?
    • Changes that make a significant difference in a user’s ability to use the feature require updates/supplemental videos
  • A Problem with Supplemental Videos: These may not be able to stand alone on WordPress.tv, so where could they live?
    • These supplementary videos could live in learn.wordpress.orgWordPress.org 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. https://wordpress.org/’s media library but this may not be an ideal solution
  • Could a slide repository help solve this issue of resources? Yes – there is a longstanding request for a slides plugin that would be super helpful to the team
  • A process for cataloging what exists on WordPress.tv, templatizing workshop content, and structure around Version Number, Dates, and the Need for Updates would be ideal
  • Temporary resolution: Lots of great ideas – there will be a stand-alone meeting scheduled to discuss this issue further.

WCEU Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/. Planning Meeting

Feedback Required!

  • Recording Five for the Future contributions
    • It’s linked in Josepha’s post on 5ftF, but https://github.com/WordPress/five-for-the-future/issues is a helpful repo to review issues in.
    • Special Interest – How do we clearing spam pledges? How do we track contributors folks editing on team sites, Learn, triaging HelpScout, etc? It would be helpful for someone to gather team data on these.
  • Seeking Feedback on Annual Meetup Survey for 2021-2022
    • Community is working on the annual survey of MeetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. organizers, and we’d like to consider more ways that Learn can support them. Please check the post and share ideas.
  • Discussion: Contrib Handbook, Part 3
    • Relates to a Code of Conduct. What are your thoughts on a wider-reaching Code of Conduct?  Check the comments on that and add some as you can.
  • A great way to contribute is to give thoughtful feedback to the issues linked above from all contributors and teams, not just the training team — definitely consider taking some time to give that feedback!

Sprint

May Sprint

We are now breaking sprint posts into sections that mimic our boards on GithubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/:

  1. Learn Content
  2. Website Development
  3. Training Team Administration

If you would like to contribute to an issue:

  1. Pick a topic from the Next Up – You Can Help column.
  2. Assign yourself to the issue. If you are unable to do this, please comment on the issue and a Team Admin will assign you to the issue. Once you’ve selected your issue (card) please move it to the Drafts in Progress column.

Content Development

For every column in our Content Development board, we have a “How to use this column” issue to help you navigate the project board.

Every column in our Content Development board has a “how to use this column” issue.

  1. Drafts:  you’ll find the person assigned to the issue in the drafts column.
  2. Reviews: these are ready for feedback, proofreading, comments, etc.
  3. Published
  4. Help Needed
    1. Content
    2. Ready to Create – You Can Help
      1. High Priority
      2. Medium Priority
      3. Quick Fix
    3. Topic Ideas

When you think about how to contribute to the training team, opportunities include:

  1. Creating content from the “You can help” column
  2. Reviewing someone else’s content that is almost ready to be published
  3. Revising abandoned issues to be ready to go live. That includes many long – time lesson plans that mention brands and now meet our brand guidelines, or just need a refresh due to updates.

Website Development

If you want to contribute to the site functionality of Learn then please have a look at our Website development project board.
Items on this board also have a priority label (high, medium and low) as well as good first issues.

  1. High Priority Issues
  2. Medium Priority Issues
  3. Good First Issues

Training Team Administration

We will use this board for our general admin like meeting notes recap. We have created templates that you can use.

Open Discussions

  • Do we add Learn WordPress Content Error reports to GitHub? If not, where is the best place to report this?
    • Yes; as long as these are simple ways to contribute (spelling, broken links, etc.)
    • Yes; it would be good to add to GitHub under ‘high priority’ and add the label ‘Helpscout’ to it
    • @piyopiyofox will create a new template for this.
    • Harder fixes (i.e. videos) should go directly to the content creators
  • How can we add starter files to exercises so learners can use and access them?
    • Direct folks to Github and teach them how to download the file from there
    • We would need to make an area in our repo for this
    • We may create a repo specifically to store useable assets for learners and teachers to utilize
  • We have a need for organizational contribution, specifically to go through lots of learn content, then use categories and tags to group related content
    • We may have a screensharing session in the future to teach people how to do this
    • See Slack link for more details about what this entails

WCEU Contributor Day 

Contributors attending WCEU will be meeting after May 24 (6.0 release) to plan contributor time and collaboration with Docs and Marketing.

Social Learning Spaces Re-naming

Social Learning Spaces is difficult to translate and the some perceive this to refer to social welfare rather than community, as discussed in #polyglots#training and #marketing. The discussion included recommendations to specify the community aspect or knowledge sharing. A post will be created to gather more formal feedback.

Monthly Sprint

We’re 2 weeks exactly from releasing WordPress 6.0

To see all content that we have related to 6.0 to create, revise, or review, here’s a link to all 6.0 content. https://github.com/WordPress/Learn/projects/2?card_filter_query=label%3A6.0#column-17929305

We would like to have as much as possible content on the 24th

This is a similar goal to #docs.  Of course, we know getting everything out at launch is still a stretch goal, or even lofty dream.   But when picking what to work on next, if possible, picking something that we could have ready at launch would be a fantastic priority.If you’ve picked something up but know you reasonably won’t have it in near the end of next week, consider opening it up for others that might have capacity to do so

We’d like to conclude most new content being created by the end of next week so that we have a few days to review.

Meeting Agenda for May 10 – 12, 2022

If you are not yet ready to create content, we also need help with folks reviewing/proofreading content regularly. See the “Review in progress” column here. https://github.com/WordPress/Learn/projects/2#column-17929306

If anyone needs a site that won’t expire in 4hrs, pingPing The act of sending a very small amount of data to an end point. Ping is used in computer science to illicit a response from a target server to test it’s connection. Ping is also a term used by Slack users to @ someone or send them a direct message (DM). Users might say something along the lines of “Ping me when the meeting starts.” me and I can help get you one that will last up to 14days

The Training Team Faculty Program is now live

Folks who are interested in getting involved can use this link here to apply to join

@Destiny has been doing a phenomenal job reaching out to folks that have recently joined the channel, reviewing if they’ve filled out the initial get started forms, and also outreach to the faculty members.

We will get some training out soon on using GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers.

#meta has asked to help us elevate connecting our GitHub profiles on WordPress profile

You can go to your profile, select edit, and connect your accounts here Doing so will help with integrating to the GitHub WordPress organization and our team’s specific boards

If you are not attending WCEU, there are still good ways/reasons to get involved. 

Contributor days in person are a time for folks to meet all the teams. There’s an opening session and then tables usually in a large conference area. People can break off to different teams to meet and greet.

As a team, we usually plan for the international camps together, and one person might take on the role of any comms with the organizers.  Other times the coordinators are for more local camps.  One person on the team that might prep the post on Training’s site welcoming folks for smaller city-level camps.
