Plan for WordCamp US Contributor Day

Hello team! Tomorrow is WordCamp US Contributor Day. We have a few main groups of priorities for contributor day tomorrow. We will plan to split into two groups to deal with the following priorities. Contributors can work on just a piece of this or move to the other group mid-day if they’d like. They are as follows:

Priority A: Audit of Lesson Plans to Identify Needed Updates

  • Audit existing plans for WordPress 4.9 (and, really, 4.8 as well based on summer 2017 release date) and make a list of plans that need content updates.
  • As part of the audit, we need to make a list of any plans that need to be copyedited again.
  • We have learned that the images missing from some lesson plans can not be recovered, so as part of the overall audit would like to replace screenshots included in the plans.
  • We should take a hard look at WordPress 4.8 and 4.9 and create a list of any new features that need to be addressed in the “WordPress 101 Track.”

Priority B: Building a Team Roadmap for 2018

  • We need to finalize our new meeting time.
  • We need to take the ideas discussed over the summer regarding our new planned workflow and create a plan to implement these ideas. I am anticipating this is a huge task that will take much of the day. Our notes on next steps for implementing a lot of this are contained in this meeting recap post from 9/12/2017.

We have not heard from team members who can not make it in person about times for a video call, so we are not currently planning to have one. I think we should plan to recap WordCamp US on a team video call in a meeting over the next few weeks instead. Tomorrow we will document everything we do and share through the Make site and Slack.

WordCamp US 2017 Contributor Day Planning

WordCamp US is approaching and will be in Nashville in early December, with a contributor day on the Sunday, December 3rd. Since this will be an opportunity for many contributors of the training team to meet in person we want to make sure we’re gathering a list of all of the items we’d like to address as a team beforehand to make the most efficient use of our time together. That said, for those who are not able to make it in person, we will work as a team to make sure that you are updated and able to participate as much as possible in what we’re working on this day.

We’ll chat about this subject over the next few weeks in team meetings and will use this post as a place to store our thoughts and asynchronously share our ideas.

Please add your ideas in the comments!
