  • We’ve seen much activity regarding dev issues on our 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. board

What could we improve?

  • We could continue building the handbook so contributors have more precise guidance.
  • A Better and smooth onboarding experience. Am trying my best to work on this.
  • Is there a way we could improve engagement in the EMEA/America team meetings?

What will we do differently?

  • We can ease the onboarding process for newcomers and beginners.
  • We will definitely improve learning categorization about various tutorials, workshops, and lesson plans starting with basic to advanced levels, and make it easy to navigate and find.
  • The Training Team onboarding paths project has started! Hopefully, we’ll see some more engagement by new contributors once this has been launched.
