LearnWP Content Types

Our team uses 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/ for project management.

  • Sign up here.
  • Training team content planning here.
  • We do our actual content creation on Learn.WordPress.org itself and do not use pull requests for content.

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join in, comment on posts, and participate in meetings and on projects.

How you can contribute today

There are several ways that you can contribute to the team today.

Marketing team collaboration request

  • Continued work on crafting social media messaging to promote new content on LearnWP

Docs team collaboration request

  • Idea: visible change log at the bottom of pages that is automated
  • Discuss what needs to happen before Docs starts to link at Learn materials (Lesson plans and workshops merge) to prevent many broken links.

LearnWP Needs Analysis

  • Rough draft of a Needs Analysis (this will be editable during WCEU)
    • This connects to the WordPress certification goal
    • What is the goal of this Needs Analysis doc? See Needs Analysis examples
  • Overhaul Submit Idea form
    • We’d like ideas for topics to go into GitHub, and the team is working on having a matching lesson plan for each workshop. Submit a topic (GitHub issue)
    • People will still apply to host workshops or Social Learning Spaces. These will go to a team Helpscout email and the Faculty team will vet the applicants.

Submit a topic to GitHub Issues – Social Learning Space

  • Host a Social Learning Space about how the Training team uses GitHub
    • Training around how to submit an issue or topic idea in GitHub
    • Showing folks how to read our project board
  • Discuss in person at WCEU on how to apply and host a Social Learning Space
