Special Announcement

@chanthaboune will be stepping away from the team as she’s been asked to lead a second team at work. Very special thanks to @chanthaboune for the spirit, insights, support, and contributions to this team. We appreciate everything you’ve done and will miss you (but will see you soon!).

We will need a new backup for @bethsoderberg moving forward.

Lesson Plan Updates

  • @jenwill is working on Enqueuing Scripts and Styles after a productive conversation in the Slack channel over the last week or so where the team decided to keep this plan simple, with room to expand into other plans as necessary later.
  • @donkiely is working on an updated version of the Child Themes lesson plan and it needs one more round of feedback before it heads into copyediting. Everyone is encouraged to take a look and leave their feedback in Slack.
  • We are not able to audit the lesson plans for the 4.8 release until our issue with images not showing up in our lesson plans is fixed. We’ve submitted a ticket with systems and are waiting for a response.

Copyediting Updates

  • @mike_piercy is going through and making edits for grammar, punctuation, etc.
  • Some of the image issues were fixed last week, but not all.

Testing Updates

  • @chanthaboune tried to do a 101 workshop with the beginner lesson plans last weekend but it didn’t work out for totally unpredictable reasons.
  • @chanthaboune reports that Hack the Hood is going to use some of the theme lessons and will implement them in their summer boot camp.
  • @mikepiercy asked about database syncing in workshop settings. We had a productive conversation about how hard this is to do and outlined a few different options. You can read the whole thing at this time stamp.
