Recap of June 6, 2017 Meeting

Lesson Plan Updates
@jenwill has continued working on enqueuing scripts and styles. my rough draft is maybe halfway through and it’s already really long. Requests feedback. (https://make.wordpress.org/training/?post_type=handbook&p=8646&preview=true)

Suggestions were made regarding adding WP-CLI to lesson plan, probably as multiple plans. @pbarthmaier asked if it should be part of a previously-suggested developer track.

Copyediting Updates
@mike_piercy: I wasn’t here last week but have made it through roughly half of the grammar edits while checking the inconsistencies in the nav links.

Testing Updates
@melindahelt is planning to use training materials for a full-day workshop at WCKent.

Q&A and Announcements
@bethsoderberg
1. I have heard from a few folks who are interested in helping me lead meetings, take notes, keep everything organized and on track, etc. I want to leave the conversation about that open for another week or two to make sure folks have the ability to pipe up if they’d like to. Please DM me if you’d like.

2. Proposal a mini summit since none of us will be at WCEU Community Summit. We can talk about it again next week.

New member @myselfkhayer asked about how to contribute.

Special Announcement

@chanthaboune will be stepping away from the team as she’s been asked to lead a second team at work. Very special thanks to @chanthaboune for the spirit, insights, support, and contributions to this team. We appreciate everything you’ve done and will miss you (but will see you soon!).

We will need a new backup for @bethsoderberg moving forward.

Lesson Plan Updates

  • @jenwill is working on Enqueuing Scripts and Styles after a productive conversation in the Slack channel over the last week or so where the team decided to keep this plan simple, with room to expand into other plans as necessary later.
  • @donkiely is working on an updated version of the Child Themes lesson plan and it needs one more round of feedback before it heads into copyediting. Everyone is encouraged to take a look and leave their feedback in Slack.
  • We are not able to audit the lesson plans for the 4.8 release until our issue with images not showing up in our lesson plans is fixed. We’ve submitted a ticket with systems and are waiting for a response.

Copyediting Updates

  • @mike_piercy is going through and making edits for grammar, punctuation, etc.
  • Some of the image issues were fixed last week, but not all.

Testing Updates

  • @chanthaboune tried to do a 101 workshop with the beginner lesson plans last weekend but it didn’t work out for totally unpredictable reasons.
  • @chanthaboune reports that Hack the Hood is going to use some of the theme lessons and will implement them in their summer boot camp.
  • @mikepiercy asked about database syncing in workshop settings. We had a productive conversation about how hard this is to do and outlined a few different options. You can read the whole thing at this time stamp.

Recap of May 9, 2017 Meeting

Lesson Plan Updates

@jenwill and @pbarthmaier are still woking on Enqueuing Scripts and Styles.

@donkiely is almost done with Child Themes (twenty sixteen) but it’s mostly ready for critique. He wants to go through it a few more times and explain some things more clearly. He thanks @melindahelt, saying she was helpful in most of the heavy lifting.

He’s using Twenty Sixteen because that’s what the current plan is using but will make it easy to update to Twenty Seventeen. It was in Twenty Sixteen because that was the latest theme when @melindahelt did the first version.

The lost images issue has not yet been resolved.

@donkiely will clean up the shortcake and HTML tags in the Style Guide since the page doesn’t show the tags, just their effect.

Copyediting Updates

None given.

Testing Updates

@coachwp doing 2 (plugins and the editor) next week.

Q&A and Announcements

None given.
