Meeting Note Takers

Meeting recap notes is one of the best ways to get started contributing to a team. Please refer to this guide to get started.

Faculty Members Update

Please check the faculty members’ full list here. https://make.wordpress.org/training/faculty-program-members/

Proposal for GitHub Process Updates

Based on the discussions during the August 24th / 30th Supplemental SME Meeting and recent Monthly Faculty Meeting, folks have requested changes to the GitHub Content Development Board’s issue triaging and management. This proposal offers improvement suggestions to the current GitHub processes in order to clarify workflows for Faculty and Training Team Members.

WCUS 2022 Update

WCUS took place last weekend and you can scroll back to find out what went on that day ( please note that this link will take out of the flow of this discussion) https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C02RW657Q/p1662918243308299

Individual Learner Survey

Courtney requested that we all take the survey, promote it on social, and ask others to take it.

August Sprint Retrospective

At the end of the month, we run a retrospective and review

  1. What went well?
  2. What could we improve?
  3. What will we do differently?

Check out the feedback from last month and if you missed it you can add your comments to the post.

 Course Creation – Making the process public

Jonathan is publicly documenting his process for course creation.

I’ve been thinking a lot about how to make the process of course creation public and open to feedback. As such I have decided to try and build the content publicly, by using a separate GitHub repository in my personal account. You can read more about my reasoning on this comment on the course issue in GitHub.

Allie has an idea for a course about creating courses.

Here is the link: https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C02RW657Q/p1662927462402609

Training team badges

Pooja has been working on a post regarding how training team badges are awarded. This will shortly be circulated to the team to review and comment.

Handbook Updates

The following pages in the handbook have been updated:

Open Discussion

There is some confusion as to which GitHub Projects board should be used.

  1. This is the original board for content: https://github.com/orgs/WordPress/projects/2
  2. This board was created to test GitHub automation:  https://github.com/orgs/WordPress/projects/33

Courtney shared the following thoughts :

We prefer the point where media comes in to be on LearnWP itself. We’ve had issues of media being hot linked to GitHub still. Also, all currently live posts should be revised using the revision 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 tool on Learn itself. We moved to only creating on Learn because GitHub can intimidate a lot of folks. The old way of writing on GitHub was a much steeper step up for folks that don’t know it. I think the key for the team is to be consistent so we know where to go to view work someone has partially done.

Looking for feedback: Handbook page about content localization

The Training Team has wanted to make contributing localized content for Learn WordPress easier. As of today, you can now find a page in our handbook that will walk you through both translating existing content, and creating new content in locales other than English!

New handbook page: Content Localization

The workflows listed are a combination of processes currently used by Training Team members, and some new ideas to better track contributions and maintain consistency across translated content. The team is looking for contributors to try these new workflows and help us identify how we can make them even better.

Please share your experience creating localized content for Learn WordPress with these new workflows in the comments of this post. If you have any suggested improvements to the newly created handbook pages, please share those below, too! We will continue to update the processes as we receive feedback.
