What we are working on now

Learn WordPress launch has happened!

Really huge milestone for many of the .org Make teams. This has been a cross-team initiative spanning #training, #marketing, #community, #WPTV #meta and more. Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this launch. @webcommsatat, @meher, @oglekler, @lmurriom, @harishanker, @hlashbrooke, @nalini, @azhiyadev, @coreymckrill, @melchoyce and more have been amazing to see in action this week.

To date, #training has had more than 150 contributors involved in our lessons plans. To celebrate the launch we will be holding a virtual get together tomorrow Wednesday 16 December 2020 from 1 pm to 1:45 pm UTC. @webcommsat reminded everyone that registration will close Tuesday 14 December 2020, 8 pm UTC. As a celebration, @meher has a fun quiz (non WordPress) for us to participate in during the event. Bring a pen and paper to write down all your answers.

Marketing help wanted

#marketing has done so much towards the launch today. However, they still need our help as part of the ongoing promotion of the Learn siteLearn site The Training Team publishes its completed lesson plans at https://learn.wordpress.org/ which is often referred to as the "Learn" site.. Share socials with #LearnWP – refer to Slack timestamp for specific channels.

Marketing is seeking quotes on how people use the Learn website and why contributing to Learn and Training is fun, and how you can encourage others.

We’ve appended the links directly to the social platforms mentioned to draw your attention to those. You will find them under the “Action Items” We’d love for you to share it today AND ongoing – #marketing has a lot of promotions planned for the next couple of months.

@webcommsatat mentioned that the first week is crucial so please follow the channels mentioned and like, retweet items to your network to help us amplify the messages. #marketing has a 6 month campaign with lots of opportunities for you to get involved. They will be sharing images and videos from official accounts and are making arrangements with a number of sites and podcasts. If you have any suggestions for others please let her and @meher know. They are also working on campaign messages and videos os off you are interested in this area, do connect with them. They look forward to welcoming you all to the event tomorrow.

Big thank you to @onealtr and @geheren for helping with these follow-ups.

Merging all Learn groups

We are in the process of merging the Learn working groups to all who call the Training team home. Please welcome the contributors who are focusing on the workshops areas. We expect additional meetings to occur from our team 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/./blog and in the #training Slack channel.

The proposal has been out for quite a while without objection, so work has begun to merge the two. This opens up many opportunities for collaboration of planning and organisation of content between workshops and lesson plans.

Learn landing page

The first phase of visually organizing lesson plans has begun. We are still working towards the agreed lesson plan landing page.

Learn is now in the main site nav on .org, in the footer and for most localised version as well. Thanks to everyone who has been working cross-team on headerHeader The header of your site is typically the first thing people will experience. The masthead or header art located across the top of your page is part of the look and feel of your website. It can influence a visitor’s opinion about your content and you/ your organization’s brand. It may also look different on different screen sizes. menu and footer changes.

Team organization review

As a team, a lot of our procedures and workflows have changed since we resumed regular meetings several months ago. We need to revisit our Handbook and Trello board around ideas for our workflow.

We have a lot of Learn site functionality Trello board and team workflow/processes to organize as well. A few of us have been capturing ideas leading up to the launch today for some of those areas.

We also need to do a brief round through revising out procedures, workflows, ensuring we track contributions and auditing methods. @carike highlighted the big issue with the current auditing tool is that it make it difficult to use for collaboration and therefore makes the audit tools un-auditable. A username and date for each change as part of the post_meta data would be highly appreciated.

@evarlese and @azhiyadev have expressed an interest in helping prioritise these needs soon. Once this has been completed we can then resume content creation. We expect this to be done over the next few weeks.

Tentative guideline for editing lesson plans

We have an audit tool in the works to replace the features we miss from 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/. #meta is working on this but we do not have an ETA yet. Our tentative guideline for editing live lesson plans until then is:

  1. Copy/paste live content to a draft post
  2. Title the work in progress as “DRAFT: Title of original”
  3. Save, but do not publish
  4. Leave a message in Training

This will allow anyone to pick up and continue the work, track revisionsRevisions The WordPress revisions system stores a record of each saved draft or published update. The revision system allows you to see what changes were made in each revision by dragging a slider (or using the Next/Previous buttons). The display indicates what has changed in each revision. and set media images on Learn site for others to access.

It is not always a vertical column on the side. It can be a horizontal rectangle below or above the content area, footer, header, or any where in the theme. with a container around the individual lesson plans.
    • For the single lesson plan page, there’s some ongoing discussion with a general agreement that we would prefer to avoid accordions in the design for 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) concerns, but would like to use breadcrumbs or another feature to help orient readers or educators within a lesson plan or series.

Introduction and Welcome 

  • Welcome to new Contributor Hetvi Patel

Congrats and Thanks

For anyone new, we want to acknowledge contributions made to the team so please fill out our contact form, if you haven’t already done so. It will also help us provide you with access to various Training team accounts.

What we are working on now

We are currently working on these last steps before launching Learn.WordPress.org on December 15!

  • @courane01 said we are nearly done with tasks for launch!
  • One of the last big projects is a “partial landing page” so when someone visits the Lessons Plans page, things are laid out a bit better and more organized. @evarlese has been working on this. Currently, they are digging back to one of our design team collaborators who originally worked on the InVision layout @courane01 shared last Friday to get parts of this working.
  • @courane01 said there are still 2 lesson plans that need to be written:
    • Creating/joining Slack, orientation to channels and etiquette. @geheren took this on. @webcommsat can help review when done.
    • Joining Get Involved Teams – See Contributor Day Handbook. No one took this task to @courane01 is doing for now (but she has a lot going on for launch, if someone has time to take on).

@courane01 gave a shout-out to the #marketing team for coordinating with the #training and #community teams on the launch! They would like feedback:

  • Suggestions for the channels for external outreach and promotion. Where do you or those you know get their news about WordPress?
    • They could also really use non-English news sources in the outreach effort.
    • There is a link in Slack to a Google Doc to share ideas.
  • Marketing is also seeking quotes on how people use the Learn website and why contributing to Learn and Training is fun, and how you can encourage others.
  • @webcommsat also asked for volunteers to help with social sharing graphics

To celebrate the launch, @webcommsat announced that we will be golding a virtual get together on Wednesday 16 December from 1 pm to 1:45pm UTC.

  • There is a link to the Eventbrite on Slack.
  • Bring your party drinks, snacks and fancy backgrounds. This will be a cross-team event
  • If there are too many people, @webcommsat said we will plan a second event. Limited to Zoom’s numbers.
  • They will also be sharing graphics and social media items, plus a fun quiz.
  • One thing: @webcommsat asks that we check with everyone before photos are taken and shared on social media to be respectful to where people may be joining us from. We will take official photos, so make sure your Zoom name if it includes your email address, etc.
  • They are trying to organize a big virtual cake too, so reach out to @meher if you can participate.
  • Down the line, there will be a 6-month party too!

Standup/Check-In

  • @courane01 spent the last week working on cross-team communication. She followed up with @jessecowens and @sippis on slides and screenshots for #marketing. Her only blockers are time. By Friday, she will have any of our screenshots from herself and the team ready for #Marketing. She will also be working on the Get Involved lesson plan (see above), unless anyone else can take on.
  • @onealtr committed to learn last week on how to facilitate the meetings and was taught by @courane01. He led today’s meeting and it went great!
  • I (@geheren) took last week off after my “mini sprint” the week before. I went back to work after a week+ of vacation and needed to catch up. This week I will be working on this recap and the Slack lesson plan.

Action items

@courane01 shared where comments are needed:

What we are working on now

We are currently working on these last steps before launching Learn.WordPress.org

  • @rastaban joined Training on Tuesday and cleaned up one of those complex code lesson plans “The Loop
  • @rastaban and @webtechpooja both encountered the 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 that presents code in lesson plans have a bug with closing PHPPHP PHP (recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML. http://php.net/manual/en/intro-whatis.php. snippets in particular. A bug report has been filed and hopefully can be resolved soon.

There has been a lot of progress on the other high priority items:

We have a release date of December 15, 2020, for Learn. This was a group decision with #marketing and #community-team to give WP5.6 and Learn some space in the communication and press. Thank you to #marketing for the thoughtfulness and work put into the release comms for Learn.

  • The launch for Learn will also include a social media pack. If you have any networks that you think would be useful in promoting Learn WordPress for launch and during the 3-month campaign, please let #marketing know.
  • #marketing would also welcome your input into a collaboration they shared in marketing this week. You can find it at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1PUJDhb7YDfRUj3CX_6IJSd2ANKQfkbmEl3KP5mY9q_c/edit
  • #marketing is collating a list of external promotional opportunities and scheduling these for both maximum promotion and to help ensure the material that is being shared is consistent and up-to-date. It allows them to keep up the momentum and include calls to action and calls for volunteers as needed. If you think you can help with this then please get please tag abahanonstopnewsuk in the #marketing slack channel
  • #marketing will share how you can be involved with the Learn WordPress launch closer to December 15, 2020.
  • #marketing also has internal fun plans to celebrate the Learn WordPress launch. If you would love to get involved, let them know. @webcommsat promises cake (virtual of course :-)).

One of our last steps on launch is coordinating wth #meta for some visual organization.

  • @coreymckrill has been working with the Training team to help with the flow and functionality of the site.
  • @dufresnesteven provided the work done roughing in Jan/Feb this winter. The team at the time envisioned an MVPMinimum Viable Product "A minimum viable product (MVP) is a product with just enough features to satisfy early customers, and to provide feedback for future product development." - WikiPedia including much of what is shown on the visual organization. Note, this is a 14-page file. If @chetan200891 or @jessecowens can point to any comments that happened around reaching this point, it’d be appreciated.
  • Before launch, we’d like at least a small portion of that organization to be present. Giving new visitors a bit of visual organization and flow through the site will help. @evarlese and @courane01 have been providing input into this. If anyone wants to contribute to the conversation, then @courane01 will be available in the Training slack from 17:00 UTC today. You can comment asynchronously.

In terms of what is left before launch, that the team can do, it would be nice to have the following lesson plans created:

  1. Joining the Making WP Slack
    1. The following content might be useful https://github.com/WordPress/contributor-day-handbook/blob/master/*Start%20Here%20-%20General%20Guides/How%20to%20join%20the%20WordPress.org%20Slack%20instance.md
  2. Joining Get Involved teams
    1. This will need to link to the Contributor Handbook on WordPress/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 well as the links to the onboarding videos from Make WP slack.

There is 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. in Learn lesson plans with our template. We ask that you do not hit publish, as we do have a revision process before taking lessons live.

Standup/Check-In

@courane01 committed to and completed cross-team efforts, monitoring what’s left to be done, onboarding new contributors as well as helping to onboard @onealtr to facilitate the Tuesday meetings in the near future.

@evarlese helped with the sprints and subsequently worked on updating/finishing content in lesson plans.

Would others like to assist with those lesson plans OR visual organization? Feedback on initial flow and help sorting the material is greatly appreciated. We can loosely organize that here in the channel or @courane01 can organize a blog post with approximate timeframes. We’d love to see the team share in the stand-ups in an ongoing manner. After launch, we will revisit internal documentation/procedures, our forms and more.

Open announcements/discussion

Please comment on the proposal to move the Learn Working Group to Training to better organize and unify the work of Learn.

As part of the progression, @evarlese has published the collective thoughts of those noted in the footer on Learn WordPress: Blue sky thinking. This is a brainstorm type document on where Learn can go, with a 3-year vision roughly presented. Please leave your feedback.

If you have any additional ideas/suggestion or would like to voice support of these thoughts, concerns or other, please do.

Action items

@courane01 will continue to work on the release prep work, especially getting a minimum version of visual organization. Also, follow up with @sippis and @jessecowenson downloadable slide options.

@evarlese will focus on helping with visual organization and anything else that may come up before launch.

@azhiyadev will assist with feedback on initial visual flow and help sort the material.

Learn WordPress: Blue sky thinking

As we get closer to launching Learn WordPress, and we continue to explore ways to improve the platform, a number of contributors started to pull together some ideas in this post for what we’d like to see Learn look like in the future.

This originally started as a Google document, so I’ve tried to capture most, if not all, of the comments shared in revisionsRevisions The WordPress revisions system stores a record of each saved draft or published update. The revision system allows you to see what changes were made in each revision by dragging a slider (or using the Next/Previous buttons). The display indicates what has changed in each revision. of this list. However, these ideas are just a starting point to collect all of our ideas and visions for Learn. Please keep adding thoughts, ideas, clarifications, and so on as you think of them!

Project Goals

Learn WordPress is an online platform that offers free educational content for anyone interested in learning how to publish with, build for, and contribute to WordPress. It is intended to be the primary learning resource for anyone wanting to learn how to do more, and help others do more, with WordPress.  

We aim to:

  • Educate about WordPress
  • Appreciate the power of WordPress and how it’s made
  • Celebrate all the cool things people are doing with WordPress

What could this look like?

Think of this as answering the question: “What could Learn WordPress look like in 2023?”

    3. Bud Manz has been working and gone on holiday and will spend time next week working on needs-design-feedback tags and helping @camikaos (she/her) on the sprints
  6. Open announcements/discussion
    1. Slides: For next week, Courtney will continue any cross team collab, and thanks to @Jesse Owens, will also check that all the slides in 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/ are available on lesson plans.  Jesse has been pivotal in that work.  Hoping to find a low-lift way for users to get a PDF print of the slides we currently have.
      1. Option 1: Instruct the audience to print the slides and use their browser’s print-to-pdf option
      2. Option 2: Have the lesson creator do those steps, and add them to the repositories
      3. Option 3 would be to add a “Print” button in the slide decks themselves
  7. Last announcement: https://make.wordpress.org/community/2020/12/01/proposal-moving-the-learn-working-group-to-training/
    1. The idea is that the training team would be the home for all Learn WordPress site info. We’re currently split between #community-team and #training for content, P2s, working group discussions.  Unifying Learn work to the Training team could really help us organize and streamline decisions.
