Looking for feedback

Discussion: Bringing accessibility-first approaches into content development — this is a new discussion started with the team, and we need member’s feedback.

I also want to tie in a conversation @Courtney shared in #meta recently which ties into accessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers). (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accessibility) work as well https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C02QB8GMM/p1708544941159409 (note that this thread will take you out of the meeting)

Updates from last week’s dev-squad triage session

Dev-squad 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. https://github.com/ triage meetings happen in #meta-learn every Thursday at 07:00 UTC — if you have developer experience or are interested in helping manage that work please tune in later today!

Feb 14 attendees: @jonathan and @devmuhib

There were no new PRs or bugs to triage this week, so the team moved into triaging Content Feedback issues.

They also updated the Dev-squad triage handbook page to include details on validating Content Feedback issues for future meetings.

Props

In this section we’ve asked fellow Training Team members if they’d like to nominate someone to share props with. I understand we have the #props channel, but keeping it in house is also pretty awesome.

I’d like to start off by giving props to @devmuhib. I’ve seen you everywhere in the team lately, unafraid to give a helping hand, respond to P2P2 P2 or O2 is the term people use to refer to the Make WordPress blog. It can be found at https://make.wordpress.org/. discussions, support others, and be a friendly presence. – @piyopiyofox

@devmuhib wants to give props to @shailu25 for reviewing multiple Gujrati translations and @zunaid321 for reviewing multiple Bengali translations.

@psykro also sends his props to @digitalchild for successfully hosting dev squad for the first time last week, helping to draft the dev squad guidelines, and always being an enthusiastic dev-squad contributor. He also wants to acknowledge @cnormandigital and @ironnysh for their contributions to the learning pathways so far, and for the work they have committed to doing. 

I’d like to recognize @digitalchild for consistently working on form submissions that come into the team’s email account. Thank you! – @bsanevans

@piyopiyofox had a question which could be resolved by GatherPress – do we need a shared team calendar (Like a publicly visible Google Calendar)? We have a lot of onboarding sessions coming up for the team — like the ones with @bsanevans@west7@psykro and myself, and I wonder if it would be easier for teammates to join these if they could see what’s going on all at one place?

They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/. on Thursday, March 7th! We’ve prepared activities for new and experienced contributors to join on the day. See the schedule for WCAsia Contributor Day day here.

We plan on hosting an online event during Contributor Day, too, so that people who couldn’t attend WordCamp Asia can still participate remotely! Please follow this post to receive updates or register on MeetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another.

Instructions for preparing in advance can be found here: Welcome to the Training Team! If you are a developer, check out these Dev-squad guidelines.

Training Team Mission

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.


I’m new to the Training Team!

Thanks for joining! Please walk through our Onboarding Program. This will give you an overview of the team, help you set up the accounts you need to contribute, and even walk you through your first contribution!

We expect the onboarding program above to take 30-60 minutes. Once you’ve completed onboarding, jump into these other activities to continue contributing!

Write a script for a learning pathway lesson

Start by searching for a piece of content you’d like to work on from one of the User or Developer learning pathways. Once found, you can assign yourself as one of the contributors to the lesson and mention that you will write the script. You can add the script to the GitHub Issue once it is completed.

Review published content and submit feedback

The WordPress software continues to grow, and new features are always added. Reviewing published content and updating content is important in keeping the Learn WordPress website current. Follow the team guide about reviewing published content to leave feedback about any content below. (Reviewing older content would be helpful!)

Submit new content topic ideas

Have a look through the Learn WordPress website. Are there any topics you feel would be great to add to the website? Add your topic ideas to our GitHub repository from the link below:

New GitHub Issue: Topic Idea – Remember to use the “Content Development (general)” Issue.


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!

Content Creation / Scriptwriting

Are you interested in creating content? If so, creating content related to the Learning Pathway Project or the 6.5 release is our priority today.

Considering the time constraints associated with Contributor Day, it would be beneficial if you could develop a script for one of the learning pathway lessons. Alternatively, you could craft a script focused on one of the upcoming 6.5 features. If you have the capacity to complete the recording of the lesson when you return home, please let us know.

Start by searching for a piece of content you’d like to work on in the Recent Release project board or a lesson from one of the User or Developer learning pathways. Once found, you can assign yourself as one of the contributors to the lesson and mention how you will contribute. You can add the script to the GitHub Issue once it is completed.

Join an in-person discussion with @westnz to gain practical insights into lesson creation.

Here is also a helpful resource to watch: How to create a video tutorial for learn.wordpress.org

Content Translation

Are you interested in translating content? If so, then translate the content mentioned in the LearnWP Content – Localization GitHub Project Board. We have some high-priority content that needs to be translated. 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

Reviewing content waiting to be published is also a priority for us.

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.

Asked faculty to check in and answer the following questions.

  • What have you been working on and how has it been going?
  • Anything you’ve accomplished since the last meeting?
  • Do you have any blockers?
  • Can other Faculty or Training Team members help you in some way?

Open Discussions

  • @devmuhib question- Someone has translated several pieces of content, all of which seem to be directly copied and pasted from Google Translate. I have personally reviewed this content and can confirm that the translations are not good in quality and, at times, not readable. Despite multiple requests to modify the content and maintain a certain standard, the issues persist, and the content remains unreadable. What is the appropriate course of action for such translations? @bsanevans had a few suggestions
    • Raise some specific items in the translation
    • If in the same timezone, work on a translation together.

If there are any other suggestions please add to this thread. Translation Discussion

  • @jonathanbossenger brought up- our use of InstaWP to be discussed by the team.
    • @psykro and @bsanevans have added comments on the issue 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. https://github.com/.
  • @bsanevans brought up- Faculty members are added to the Learn Content Triage team on GitHub. This gives them access to triage issues, change statuses, and most importantly, check-off boxes automatically added by automation. (More info about this group in this handbook page.)
    • What do folks think about extending this permission to vetted content creators, too? 
      • @bsanevans gave more context in the thread.
      • We could offer this access to folks who, for example, meet all these criteria:
      • Is a vetted Tutorial presenter or Online Workshop facilitator
      • Has created 3 or more pieces of content
      • Has requested to be added to the GitHub triage group
