Open Discussions

  • How can we make Training Team meetings more engaging and less about reporting?
    – What topics/conversations would you like to share in each weekly meeting?
    • Two cents from @jominney
      • Some things other teams have done that I’ve seen helpful:
      • ‘check in’ section where team members can share what they are working on or have recently completed.
      • ‘ask for help/I’m stuck on…’ section where team members can ask any not-so-silly questions they have.
      • Something I personally would love to see because there isn’t great communication between a lot of teams
      • Does anyone have any relevant news they’d like to share from other teams that would be helpful for the training team?
      • For example, Milana from the docs team recently did a bunch of work on automation in 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. that @Ben Evans is now looking into as a way to improve our processes too. There is also a lot of work happening with the contributor mentor program that will be relevant to our team.
