A few weeks ago, @courane01 and @webtechpooja shared an idea to host a session where contributors – or potential contributors – could shadow Community team and Learn WordPress contributors in reviewing and vetting workshop submissions. Let’s make that idea happen!
Currently, when someone submits a workshop idea to Learn WordPress, they fill out the workshop presenter application. That application is then reviewed according to the same guidelines that the Community team has developed for WordPress and meetup 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. group applicants. So far, Community deputies vet most workshops – but others are welcome to learn and contribute as well.
On Tuesday, June 29, 2021 at 12:00UTC, we’ll host a Workshop Review Ridealong via Zoom in the #training channel to review a sample workshop submission together. If you’d like to attend, please add a comment to this post!
This ridealong will be an opportunity for Training and Community team members to observe the review process, express interest in helping to review workshops themselves, and also look for opportunities to help improve our documentation to make sure the expectations and standards are clear for anyone who wants to contribute! We’ll also go over next steps and requirements for folks who would like to help vet Learn WordPress workshop submissions after joining.
