News

Monthly Sprint

We’re 2 weeks exactly from releasing WordPress 6.0

To see all content that we have related to 6.0 to create, revise, or review, here’s a link to all 6.0 content. https://github.com/WordPress/Learn/projects/2?card_filter_query=label%3A6.0#column-17929305

We would like to have as much as possible content on the 24th

This is a similar goal to #docs.  Of course, we know getting everything out at launch is still a stretch goal, or even lofty dream.   But when picking what to work on next, if possible, picking something that we could have ready at launch would be a fantastic priority.If you’ve picked something up but know you reasonably won’t have it in near the end of next week, consider opening it up for others that might have capacity to do so

We’d like to conclude most new content being created by the end of next week so that we have a few days to review.

Meeting Agenda for May 10 – 12, 2022

If you are not yet ready to create content, we also need help with folks reviewing/proofreading content regularly. See the “Review in progress” column here. https://github.com/WordPress/Learn/projects/2#column-17929306

If anyone needs a site that won’t expire in 4hrs, pingPing The act of sending a very small amount of data to an end point. Ping is used in computer science to illicit a response from a target server to test it’s connection. Ping is also a term used by Slack users to @ someone or send them a direct message (DM). Users might say something along the lines of “Ping me when the meeting starts.” me and I can help get you one that will last up to 14days

The Training Team Faculty Program is now live

Folks who are interested in getting involved can use this link here to apply to join

@Destiny has been doing a phenomenal job reaching out to folks that have recently joined the channel, reviewing if they’ve filled out the initial get started forms, and also outreach to the faculty members.

We will get some training out soon on using GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can 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/ as our team does, but until then, know that it’s much like a forum or place for comments.

#meta has asked to help us elevate connecting our GitHub profiles on WordPress profile

You can go to your profile, select edit, and connect your accounts here Doing so will help with integrating to the GitHub WordPress organization and our team’s specific boards

If you are not attending WCEU, there are still good ways/reasons to get involved. 

Contributor days in person are a time for folks to meet all the teams. There’s an opening session and then tables usually in a large conference area. People can break off to different teams to meet and greet.

As a team, we usually plan for the international camps together, and one person might take on the role of any comms with the organizers.  Other times the coordinators are for more local camps.  One person on the team that might prep the post on Training’s site welcoming folks for smaller city-level camps.

The Training Team Faculty Program is now live

The Training team Faculty Program is now live and accepting applications for folks to join the faculty team.

Use this link here to apply to join the Faculty Program today! You can also check out this page here for more information on how prospective faculty members’ applications are evaluated.

What is the Faculty Program?

The need for a Faculty Program similar to Community Deputies Program (see details here) was explored in October 2021 (see post here) as a path forward to better identify volunteer positions for folks joining the team, organizing work, and ensuring that the team is meeting the targets set together.

Note that just as you do not need to be a Community Deputy to contribute to community work, you do not need to be a Faculty Program member in order to contribute to the Training team’s goals. The benefit of a formalized and publicly listed Faculty team is that it makes it easier to know who is doing the work and able to set targets for getting things done.

The four broad role categories of responsibilities instituted in this program are:

  • Content Creators: Content Creators contribute new content to Learn WordPress. 
  • Editors: Editors assist with editing content created by the content creators.
  • Subject matter experts (SMEs): SMEs work with content creators and editors to provide expertise in their relevant subject area to ensure that the content is accurate and complete.
  • Administrators: Administrators perform the management and operations work involved in the Training Team and Learn WordPress.

You can read more in-depth information about these roles on the Areas of Responsibility page here, and explore what types of tasks can be performed within these roles in the Training Teams roles page here.

What’s next?

Existing Faculty members will be processing any applications that come in through the form, and will also start reaching out to community members who may be a good fit.

Know of someone who may be interested in joining the Faculty Program? Share this post!

April Retrospective

Each month, the Training team works in Sprints. These are goals we hope to accomplish for that month. At the end of the month, we conduct a retrospective by asking ourselves a few questions. For reference, here is last month’s retrospective: March 2022 Retrospective.

We will publish the retrospective post for April in early May. For convenience, the contributor responses to the retrospective questions in Slack are linked below:
