  1. Introduction and Welcome
  2. Congrats and Thanks
  3. What we’re working on now
  4. Sprint work sessions
  5. Standup/check-in
  6. Open announcements/discussion
  1. Introduction and Welcome
  2. Congrats and Thanks
    1.  Time for more team congrats.  This week’s congrats go to @Michael Geheren.  He clocked many hours last week correcting missing screenshots and fixing broken links on the http://learn.wordpress.org website. So much so that he received a badge based upon our documentation.   
    2. Also in the mentions this week, #marketing has done a fantastic job preparing for the full launch of the Learn WordPress website. @webcommsat @nalininonstopnewsuk @meher @OGlekler @lmurilliom @yvettesonneveld. And to others from the marketing team who have helped in the meeting collaborations: @chaion07, @megphillips91, @lokesh1994, @herculespekkas @ugyensupport, @yashwardhanrana, @technocrews, @antialiasfactory and others
    3. Cross-team collaboration is really in full effect as we get close to the Learn launch.  We are anticipating a release to coincide with WordPress 5.6 shipping on Dec 8, 2020 (NEXT WEEK)
  3. What we’re working on now
    1. As we near the launch of Learn, we are checking over these areas to get lesson plans really ready for the wider public to discover. That has included fixing broken images, missing content, and more.
      1. https://make.wordpress.org/training/2020/11/25/high-priority-items-before-learn-wordpress-org-launch-part-2/
  4. Sprint work sessions
    1. @erica organized a sprint work session that occurred several hours on December 1, so there’s quite a lot of activity in our channel just before the meeting began.  Comments are mostly updated onto the High Priority post above.
    2. https://make.wordpress.org/training/2020/11/19/updating-sprint-ahead-of-learn-launch/ 
  5. Standup/check-in
    1. Courtney: Last week @Hauwa Abashiya and I sorted through what remains to be done before launch and organized it on the High Priority post as well as time spent on cross-team communications. Last week @Hauwa Abashiya and I sorted through what remains to be done before launch and organized it on the High Priority post as well as time spent on cross-team communications.
    2. Camikaos: Has been on vacation with no blockers and is now pushing for the Learn working groups to combine and be hosted under Training team, working to update anything prior to the full Learn launch, collaborating with Sandy E on trainings for Kids, recording some workshops from existing lesson plans
    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.

Meeting Survey

We’d like to kick off another meeting slot to help familiarize and onboard new contributors. These meetings will focus on how to get started with small and medium levels of contribution.

Our current meetings are at Friday at 11:00 UTC. We’re hoping to have a second meeting for the team that runs approximately 9 – 15 hours different to facilitate those in different timezones.

Lesson Plan Audit Update

  • See the far right 5 columns on our Trello board.
  • We have notes from @azhiyadev in the comparison categoryCategory The 'category' taxonomy lets you group posts / content together that share a common bond. Categories are pre-defined and broad ranging..
  • Lessons in the Almost Ready column are easy lifts to finish. Could we get volunteers to finish those?
  • Speaker Diversity lesson plans from @jillbinder are a priority, and Jill has rewritten a considerable amount as part of the #WPDiversity program.
  • Auditing each lesson on Learn also involves
    • Completing metadata
    • Checking for missing images, replacing as possible
    • Looking for 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.
