The WordPress training team helps people learn to use, extend, and contribute to WordPress through synchronous and asynchronous learning as well as downloadable lesson plans for instructors to use in live environments, via learn.wordpress.org.

One of the largest-scope discussions involved the development of our WordPress.orgWordPress.orgThe 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/ front-end site. Currently, our dedicated URLURLA specific web address of a website or web page on the Internet, such as a website’s URL www.wordpress.org is learn.wordpress.org, but a proposal was made to change to teach.wordpress.org.
The reasoning behind the proposal is that our content is— in fact— focused on how to teach WordPress topics, rather than learning. We’d like to open the discussion on this since it will be a rather large change. Please make a comment on this post with your feedback on the proposal so that we can discuss it in our upcoming meetings.
GitHubGitHubGitHub 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/ Restructuring
As we collaborated with the Meta team with the goal of translating our Lesson Plans in GitHub to the front-end, we reached the conclusion that a restructuring of our repositories will be needed.
In order for the front-end to be most easily kept up-to-date, as well as provide a mechanism for a final editorial review before content is published, a new master repository will be created with individual lesson plans as submodules within it. This will allow our current workflow to remain mostly unchanged, and the Team Leads can perform an editorial review before pulling into the master repo. @jessecowens has volunteered to spearhead this project.
We’re still looking for folks who have the time and expertise for a few vital roles in the Training Team:
Taking notes from team meetings.
