Our GitHubGitHubGitHub 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/ project boards
A week ago, a few team members were at WordCampWordCampWordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. Asia contributor day and that was a nice experience. here is some highlight:
25 contributors participated (including online)
A dozen new contributors onboarded
Started new content translations for Japanese, Arabic, and Khmer
Worked on promoting the Individual Learner Survey
Cross-team collaboration with Marketing and Docs
Discussed team goals for 2023
Marketing collaborated with Training during contributor day by drafting social media content for the resources available on LearnWP
@digitalchild looking to automate anything new that we publish going to the spreadsheet the contributors use for social promotions and ensure the theme of Learn WordPress maintains its functionality when the redesign comes our way.
Learn.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/ website development project
Due to go out as a post on the Learn WordPress website at 07:00 on March 1st. We will need to think through a subscription process to get more folks signed up for the newsletter on the Learn WordPress site. Ideally, we can give the link to Marketing to share the new updates more broadly going forward.
Daylight Savings Time ends on March 12, 2023 for AMER and March 26th for EMEA– let’s vote on what to do?
(This will open till March 7. We will show poll result in our next meeting, which is on March 8)

Online Workshops in WordPress Admin
A discussion has started to include Online Workshops in the WordPress admin dashboard widgetWidgetA WordPress Widget is a small block that performs a specific function. You can add these widgets in sidebars also known as widget-ready areas on your web page. WordPress widgets were originally created to provide a simple and easy-to-use way of giving design and structure control of the WordPress theme to the user.: Proposal: Modify the Events and News widget to show topic-based meetups worldwide.
The Individual Learner Survey has now closed. We have had 583 responses. Project analysts @webcommsat and @salonipatel, will now review and analyse the survey data. The deadline for this is March 5, 2023. (Note this was the original deadline for analysis before the survey deadline was extended)
Other work in progress
The following items are other projects that team members have volunteered to take on.
Training Team Site GutenbergGutenbergThe Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ blocks – @amitpatelmd
@courane01 said: “Join in on Friday’s coffee hour to learn how LearnWP uses Sensei Pro and what features we might want to consider including on the site. I’ll record and post the replay on the team site.”
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.
Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join in, comment on posts, and participate in meetings and on projects.
