How We Work Together

To find what the team is working on visit our latest monthly Sprint, Blog or Content Trello Roadmap.

Meetings

The Training Team meets weekly to coordinate tasks and review progress. We meet regularly in SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/., an online chatroom. A few times per year we hold our meeting by video conferencing.

  • Join the WordPress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ Slack channel #training where we communicate with each other. To get up and running on Slack go to make.wordpress.org/chat/ for information.
  • Attend our next weekly chat on our Slack channel. That is a great way to find out what we are working on and how you can jump in (see the Welcome page for times).
  • Drop in during our office hours on our Slack channel where you can ask questions, say hi and let us know what you are working on.
  • Meeting agendas and recap notes are posted on our blog. Commenting there is encouraged!

When writing Agenda or Recap notes, the team has a reusable 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. for each with important details to welcome new contributors. We even have a guide that you can follow.

Organizing Tasks

On a monthly basis, the Training team uses the Sprint method to determine what we are working on and to determine our timeframe for delivery. 

What is a Sprint?

We then use a shared Trello board to manage our current projects, progress, and needs. You can see what the team is currently working on and items that are available and need a hand. Each task which could be a lesson plan, workshop or course has a corresponding card in TrelloTrello Project management system using the concepts of boards and cards to organize tasks in a sane way. This is what the make.wordpress.com/marketing team uses for example: https://trello.com/b/8UGHVBu8/wp-marketing. whereby all comments are noted on the card. The team is notified in Slack of any updates made in Trello.
