WordCamp Europe 2024 presentation recap

On June 14, I had the privilege to present the Training Team’s vision for Learn WordPress at WordCampWordCamp WordCamps 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. Europe 2024. The presentation saw an engaged audience of 300-400 people in the main hall, with many more tuning in online. I wanted to document the feedback I received here for the team to consider as we continue improving Learn WordPress.

The presentation slides are available for download and reuse: Google Slides, PDF

Ideas from the community

  • Show Learn content in the WordPress dashboard.
    • Hosts would love for a way to show content right there without the user having to leave their site.
  • Provide Learn content in a way that hosts etc. can add/subtract modules as needed for their use cases.
    • Building a pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party was one idea as a way to achieve this.
  • Clarify how users can get help with the content.
    • Learn could show a call-to-action “click here for help” within content.
  • Offer a glossary so that users know what to call the things they’re learning.
    • There have been previous efforts to create a unified WordPress glossary (Slack conversation) which would be great to integrate on Learn for learners.
  • Provide certifications for learning achievements.

Looking for feedback

  • Would love everyone’s feedback with the introduction of the Learning Pathways.
    • What content are we obligated to leave on Learn? Ex. Classic editor
    • Until what version do we need to support?

@bsanevans suggests revisiting Learning Pathways annually to ensure they remain current. He believes that content irrelevant to the BlockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. Editor should be removed, noting that the classic editor was removed from the coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. over five years ago. By reviewing WordPress version usage stats, and focusing on content for versions 6.4 and 6.5, which cover over 70% of installs, we can keep Learn up to date with the majority of use cases.

@psykro suggests yearly updates for Learning Pathways and every six months for newer features like the Site Editor and Interactivity APIAPI An API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways. until they stabilize. He agrees that content related to features removed from the core should be removed. For WordPress versions, he proposes using a 5% usage baseline to determine content support, ensuring we cover versions 6.4 and 6.5 but also older versions if their usage exceeds 5%.

  • Training’s 2024 goals – we asked this question last week and didn’t get any feedback. I added a multiple-choice option if that is easier.
    • We’d like to send out a survey to the 10,000+ members of the Meetup.com Online Workshop group to get their input. What do folks think about these three questions?
    • What is currently working well with Online Workshops?

In WordPress, some common taxonomies are category, link, tag, or post format. https://codex.wordpress.org/Taxonomies#Default_Taxonomies. was created, allowing Courses to be classified as one of 4 Learning Pathways (designer, user, developer, contributor), and thereby be included on the new home page and taxonomy pages.

I have experience working with the Training Team!

Thanks for joining! Depending on your interests, there are a few ways you can get involved. For each of the tasks below, the team handbook should help you with process specifics. But if you have any questions, feel free to reach out!

Thumbnail Creation Project

In preparation for the relaunch of Learn.WordPress.org and Learning Pathways scheduled for July, we need to create a large quantity of small graphics – called thumbnails – to serve as featured images for each course, lesson, and tutorial. This will create a visually appealing site that will entice learners to dive in and get started on their learning journey.

Content Creation

Are you interested in creating content? If so, then creating content related to WordPress 6.5, WordPress 6.5.2 and WordPress 6.5.3 releases are our priority today.

Start by searching for a piece of content you’d like to work on in either the 6.5 project board , 6.5.2 project board, or 6.5.3 project board. Once found, comment on the GitHub issue so that we can assign it to you.

Content Translation

Are you interested in translating content? If so, then translating content related to the Localization Foundation project is our priority today. Do you speak Spanish, Japanese, German, French, Hindi, or Italian? Come help us localize content for either these five or our 8 other languages. There are a few courses about onboarding contributors specifically that will help in the WordPress mentorship program:

You can learn how to get started in content localization in this handbook page.

Content Reviews

Are you interested in editing content? If so, then reviewing content waiting to be published is our priority today.

Start by finding a piece of content to review in our content development board. This GitHub view has filtered all content waiting for reviews before it is published. Follow the team’s Guidelines for reviewing content and leave your reviews right there in GitHub.

Subject Matter Expert

subject-matter expert is someone who has extensive knowledge in a particular field or area and can provide advice, guidance, and direction in that subject. If you would like to help vet topics, please visit the Vetting Topic Ideas handbook page.

Triage Developer Issues

Are you a developer interested in working on issues for the Learn website? If so, then working through our Website Development project board is our priority today.

Start by reviewing issues “In Review”. Any help you can provide regarding issues “In Progress” would be great, too. But in general, any attention you can give to any issue would be much appreciated.

If there are enough interested Developers, then we can also create a developer-focused working group so that they can focus on related issues.

Cross-team collaboration opportunities  

Discuss or share ideas of how the Training Team could collaborate more with other Make WordPress Teams such as Marketing, Documentation etc.

Before you leave…

We’d love to hear what you achieved on the day. Before leaving the table, please submit the Contributor Day Attendee Feedback Form and respond to the relevant thread in Slack.

Looking for feedback

The team reps reviewed our 2024 goals this week and have a few questions for the team to discuss to provide clarity and achievability to some of the goals we created together. We are looking for feedback on how to proceed on two goals 

  • Goal: Brainstorm the evolution of Online Workshops
    • What are we hoping to accomplish with this goal? For example, Did we want to increase the programming? Like having the same topics over different time zones to reach more audiences?
  • Goal: Create and maintain shared resources that promote the Training Team and Learn
    • When do we feel satisfied that this is met? What resources are we lacking? We have slides and supporting materials for various things in our shared folder.
  • Request for feedback: AI-generated voiceovers for video content
    • What does the training team think of these AI voice videos? Please leave your feedback on the post!
  • Sensei has been updated to Sensei Pro to 1.24.0. Please raise an issue if you find one. Thanks @adamwood !
  • @psykro is also looking for additional feedback on his video The built-in WordPress debugging options #2378 as it presents us with a new video editing features. When providing feedback, he asks that consider the following while reviewing (some of which have been altered during the initial review)
    • use of sound effects (please see the first version of the video), some like it, some do not
    • transition speeds and use of blur effects
    • code examples, showing them in an IDE (integrated development environment) or not
    • use of dark mode vs light mode

Looking for volunteers

  • We are still looking to confirm WordCamp Europe 2024 Contributor Day table leads — do we have any volunteers?
    • We are also still looking for suggestions for things to do. Please share your thoughts by May 27th

Open Discussions

@piyopiyofox told us that @psykro wanted to start a conversation on what to do with out of date tutorials based on this content feedback on one of my original tutorials from 2020. From @psykro

“The learner came across my (very long) tutorial and shared feedback that the content was out of date. I replied with the updated tutorials for that same content.
However, I did note that the learner came to the tutorial via organic search, so it got me thinking, as we move towards the learning pathways/learn redesign, what should we plan for when it comes to older content.
We should probably do some sort of review as to what content is still coming up in online searches, and then add similar notices to the ones I added on this tutorial, about how there are updated versions.”

@west7 likes the notice on the tutorial page. @lada7042 agreed that we need to review older content. Also suggested if we can remove or need to keep the content and add the notice. While @piyopiyofox informed that removing the content from learn website will not remove content from WordPress.tv and YouTube, so we need to have a strategy to coordinate deprecation across all platform.

@cnormandigital suggest that we need to have a routine for updating the videos with the links to new content. @ironnysh suggest two notices, 1. Manually deprecation notice with links to newer versions, 2. Automatic FYI message that will added to every tutorial posted over a year ago.

They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party team that they will no longer be able to provide the following two features that were discussed at WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress.

For context, these were features #training had requested as part of our content type consolidation efforts around the site relaunch happening this year.
  1. Adding an instructor notes section to lessons
  2. Adding lessons to multiple courses

Based on this information, I’d like to discuss next steps with the team.

  • Feature 1, I think we’ll will want to work with #meta to still create this feature as part of the site redesign. But this should probably be done with as minimal custom development as possible to reduce future maintenance overhead.
  • Feature 2 is something I propose we reassess and consider alternatives for. Technically, I think Learning Pathways could still be launched without this.
  • The lesson page is getting a makeover too. Learn Design (post by Joen) Please add your comments to the post.
  • I am updating the wording in the Training team contributor badge reviewing section to make it more clear and add a link to the review template. I noticed under copyediting/reviewing there is wording “You should successfully move pieces of content from the “Review in Progress” stage to the “Published or closed” stage in GithubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers.

    • Do we want the reviewers to publish or close an issue?
    • Is it the author’s responsibility to publish or close an issue?
    • Thoughts? Should the wording be removed?

    We currently have a couple of folks still waiting to be matched with a guide, but no guides are available. What are some ways we could attract more guides, ideally in a variety of time zones?

Project thread: The second Learn WordPress Course Cohort

Project Objective

Conduct a course cohort on the same content as the 2023 cohort. Experiment applying learnings from the last cohort, with an aim to build a sustainable program the Training Team can continue to administer for Learners on Learn.

Project Overview

One of the Training Team’s goals this year is to run 1-2 outcome/project-based course cohorts. A course cohort is defined as a group of people who go through a learning journey at the same time. In 2023, the Training Team conducted a cohort where learners worked through the Course “Developing your first WordPress BlockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience.” on Learn. Participants gathered for a synchronous call each week where they could ask the instructor questions around the content they had worked through. The cohort received positive feedback from learners, but there were multiple takeaways in the administration of the cohort which are documented in this recap.

The aim of this project is to experiment applying the learnings from the last cohort, with the hopes of turning course cohorts into a sustainable educational offering on Learn. The project will use the same material as the last cohort, and will be offered to all applicants on the waiting list from the last cohort. All content will all be made available at the start of the cohort so that participants can move through content better at their own pace.

Meeting Note Takers

Meeting recap notes are one of the best ways to get started contributing to a team, and you can find details on how to write notes in this handbook page.

Looking for feedback

  • We are seeing inconsistency in the content review process, which makes it difficult to substantiate meaningful contributions. Any suggestions on how to make Guidelines for reviewing content easier?
  •  Some suggestions we’ve had so far include:
  • Ask content creators to link to the review checklist
  • Ask editors to use the review checklist

@piyopiyofox suggested: We could also try linking the review checklist to the content development checklist that’s already in the issue. 

 @bsanevans proposed automating the checklist. When a content creator marks an issue as //ready  with a comment, a bot would automatically add a comment with the review checklist link and instructions for reviewers.

@lada7042 suggested hosting a dedicated “review working hour” where people could collaborate on reviews for a set time. This could help people understand the process better and complete reviews more efficiently.

@zoonini enthusiastically endorsed Laura’s idea and even suggested hosting two sessions at different times depending on the outcome of the first one.

  • What thoughts do folks have about bridging the community team’s mentorship program with the Training Team’s guide program to funnel more people who may not know about Training directly into the team?

 @bsanevans asked @piyopiyofox and @lada7042 for clarification on the term “bridging” in the context of the conversation. 

​​@piyopiyofox reported the team’s interest in improving the pipeline from the general mentorship program to the Training Team. They suggested involving Training Guides in the broader program and potentially allowing participants to conclude their mentorship by contributing to the Training Team.

  • Just to add some context, the project-wide mentorship program is planning to launch its next group of participants (cohort) in November, around the time of the WordPress 6.7 release. Traditionally, they announce a call for mentees (people seeking mentorship) a couple of months before the program starts. This suggests an opportunity for us to be on the lookout for that announcement and see how the Training Team could potentially get involved at that time.

 @bsanevans added : Considering Kathryn’s comment over in the initial thread about our active guides being busy and Jenny’s interest in the next mentorship cohort announcement, perhaps we should pause this conversation for now. With the next cohort starting in 6 months, there’s time. @harishanker  is already aware of Training’s interest, and @jdy68 is following the program closely.  Closer to the date, with @jdy68  insights and hopefully more active guides available, we can all strategize on Training’s involvement more effectively.

And also thanks to @gusa and @zoonini for participating and sharing.
