Special Meeting 19 April 2018

Please join us at 19:30 UTC for a special presentation!

There have been a lot of changes to the Training Team’s tools and workflow recently. A presentation to go over all the changes is going to be a better way to communicate them than our usual SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. chat. Therefore, this week’s gathering of the Training Team will video presentation (webinar) style. We will be going over the new TrelloTrello Project management system using the concepts of boards and cards to organize tasks in a sane way. This is what the make.wordpress.com/marketing team uses for example: https://trello.com/b/8UGHVBu8/wp-marketing. board and the GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that 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/ repositories and how they (and us!) will work together.

So join us at the usual time but in a slightly different location. We will be using the Zoom meeting service, and a link for the event will be posted in the #training Slack channel shortly before the meeting time. The presentation will be recorded.

If you have any questions (before, during, or after) please ask in Slack! Expect homework assignments!
