May Sprint

Will hold off on May Retrospective and extend the May Sprint due to WCEU.

We are now breaking sprint posts into sections that mimic our boards on Github:

  1. Learn Content

If you would like to contribute to an issue:

  1. Pick a topic from the Next Up – You Can Help column.
  2. Assign yourself to the issue. If you are unable to do this, please comment on the issue and a Team Admin will assign you to the issue. Once you’ve selected your issue (card) please move it to the Drafts in Progress column.

Content Development

For every column in our Content Development board, we have a “How to use this column” issue to help you navigate the project board.

Every column in our Content Development board has a “how to use this column” issue.

  1. Creating content from the “You can help” column
  2. Reviewing someone else’s content that is almost ready to be published
  3. Revising abandoned issues to be ready to go live. That includes many long-time lesson plans that mention brands and now meet our brand guidelines, or just need a refresh due to updates.
