January 2023 Faculty Meeting

The January Faculty Meeting has been posted and the discussion period is between 15–31 January, 2023.

Information Sources For WordPress 6.2

What you’ll find in here are the links to GutenbergGutenberg The Gutenberg project is the new Editor Interface for WordPress. The editor improves the process and experience of creating new content, making writing rich content much simpler. It uses ‘blocks’ to add richness rather than shortcodes, custom HTML etc. https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ changelogs. We anticipate Gutenberg versions 14.2 – 15.1 to be merged into WP 6.2. There are links for CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. TracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub.https://core.trac.wordpress.org/. which would be all things not Gutenberg, or beyond FSE. We expect more yet to come in between now and Feb 7, but ideally on Feb 7 when betaBeta A pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process. 1 releases, we can start work on this.

Before we start the work, folks can volunteer for any issues tagged as 6.2. Just hold off on screenshots and videos until then.

There is a new #training-notifications Slack channel

This is a new dedicated Slack channel for notifications about Tutorials, Lesson Plans, Online Workshops, and Courses that have been recently published.

Projects

Content Localization Foundation

This project thread expands upon our Project Proposal: Content Localization and seeks to outline the tasks we aim to complete to accomplish the project’s goals to increase and expand availability of content on Learn WordPress to a variety of non-English locales.

Latest Update

  • Project members have been added as Contributors to 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. so that they can create and edit their translated content directly on the site prior to publication.
  • @piyopiyofox is working on a guide outlining content translation creation -> publication with videos and will have a draft ready this week.
  • 3 pieces of content have been published! Congratulations @pitamdey and @sagarladani!
  • There are more published translations to come! @piyopiyofox is reaching out to Local Ambassadors this week to see how we can get other translators in other key languages activated for the project.

Training Team Onboarding Paths

  • We discussed what a good way would be for contributors to add themselves to a list of contributors for each area of contribution. We’ve decided to create a Google Form which would be connected to a Google Spreadsheet team admins can maintain. The form would be embedded into the onboarding docs. Here is how the project is going.
  • We also discussed what would be good “first contributions” for each of the five onboarding paths. Ideally, these “first contributions” would be things people can complete in 30-60 minutes. We will be creating guides for each process in the Handbook, and linking to them from the onboarding documents. These are the first contributions we decided on.

Learning Needs Analysis

We are working to create a needs analysis document to help determine the most high-impact resources to provide on Learn WordPress. Please see the post Project Overview: Learning Needs Analysis for a more in-depth background and overview.

This project will be lead by @westnz and the project is in need of more project members. Please comment on this post if you are interested in helping out!

The deadline for the survey to be completed is on the 15th of February. The marketing team was briefed by @courane01 at their January 17th meeting of our need to have a marketing push before the cutoff.


Looking For Feedback

@amitpatelmd is looking for feedback on these two handbook pages:

Request for Testing: Slides Plugin

  • @victorr has forked the original Slides 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 referenced in this post and is in the process of unit testing and prioritizing Core 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. supports for the plugin.
  • We attempted to reach out to the original plugin dev but had no responses.
  • By sourcing this as a custom post typeCustom Post Type WordPress can hold and display many different types of content. A single item of such a content is generally called a post, although post is also a specific post type. Custom Post Types gives your site the ability to have templated posts, to simplify the concept. on Learn, it will give contributors an interface they are familiar with.
  • Thank you @victorr and staff have contributed towards the development work, and @meaganhanes for some scoping and testing.

2022 Year in review / Achievements

The team took some time to recognize our achievements from 2022. (See Training Team Goals for 2022 to see what those goals were.) Here are the achievements we listed:

Training Team: Discovering our Values

Come join @angelasjin and @bsanevans on January 23rd to discover the Training Team’s shared values!

Faculty Program Update

You can find last month’s updates from Faculty members on December 2022 Faculty Meeting.

Learning Needs Analysis

Check out the post above to understand the history and progress of the team’s desire to conduct a Needs Analysis. And if you haven’t taken the Individual Learner Survey yet, please do!

Bite-Sized Content on Learn

Conversations have started around creating 1 minute long videos on Learn. (Similar to TikTok videos, but about WordPress and hosted on Learn.) There is interest in collaborating with the Marketing Team on these, too. A blog post on the topic will come soon.

Change considered regarding the Settings icon in the editor sidebarSidebar A sidebar in WordPress is referred to a widget-ready area used by WordPress themes to display information that is not a part of the main content. 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.

Discussions are happening around the settings icon seen in the editor. Please contributed directly to this GitHub thread with your thoughts.

Projects

Two projects gave updates at this week’s meeting.

  1. Find the Content Localization Foundations project’s update on their project thread.
  2. The Training Team Onboarding Paths project members have a check in call next Monday. They should have draft onboarding documents ready for the team to review next week.

Open Discussions

Should we move the Learn WordPress feed out of the training Slack channel and into a new channel?

Each time a new piece of content is published on Learn WordPress, there is a notification in the training Slack channel. This was initially set up to notify team members of activity on the site when there wasn’t a lot of activity yet in the channel.

However, now that there is more activity in the Slack channel, and much more content getting published regularly, the idea was raised to remove these notices out of the training channel and into its own new channel.

If you have thoughts about this, please comment below.

Please use this issue to request a Training Team Badge.

If you would like a badge on your WordPress.org profile that acknowledges your contributions to the Training Team, you must meet the criteria: https://make.wordpress.org/training/handbook/getting-started/team-profile-badges/

Awarding of profile badges: There will be a monthly review of contributions, and badges will be awarded at that time. A list of the new profile badges awarded will then be posted on https://make.wordpress.org/training/. If you feel you have earned the badge but were not listed, please comment on that month’s blog post and include your WordPress.org username.

Team Goal Setting

It’s time to consider what the training team hopes to accomplish in 2023. Last year we met over 3 different sessions to plan out this year. Training Team Goals for 2022 reflect that plan.

However, we definitely didn’t achieve all of those goals. Should we continue them for next year?

I met recently with @angelasjin, who has offered to hold a team vision-setting meeting, and from that, we can launch into the following year’s goals. I’ll work with Angela to plan that first part of the meeting, along with a survey for the best times we can meet via Zoom as a team to do this.

Open Discussions

@courane01 Says

We have additional coffee hours starting for Eastern APAC  Fridays at 04:00 UTC from Dec 2nd.
Are Online Workshop co-hosting opportunities and Content Error Issues a good first issue for Contributors to work on?

Resurfacing this here:

@caraya Says

Feedback request: I’m working on 6.X updates to existing lesson plans, and I’m struggling with content organization.  If someone is going through the lesson plan sequentially, it makes sense to incorporate it sequentially with the existing content. However, if people are planning an update to the content they’ve already created, it would make more sense to put it in a separate section at the bottom of the document,
What do you think is best?

@courane01 Says

We’ve had the content usually updated right in line (sequentially).  We’re starting to wrap our heads around coordinating w/ #docs to have a changelog at the bottom of the file and a way to toggle to earlier versions of WP

6. Open Floor Discussions

Ben Evans Says

@annezazu left some notes on the Meeting Agenda, so let me copy them here for the team to see.

Wanted to note that I don’t see fluid typography specifically mentioned there, unless that’s planned elsewhere (couldn’t tell from the list). It’s a big feature to highlight. Ditto goes for using dimension controls for end users (and theme authors alike), in light of all the work being done there: 
https://make.wordpress.org/core/2022/09/26/core-editor-improvement-catalyst-for-creativity/

Separately, the following has been pushed from this release:

Classic themes can now opt into appearance tools via a new theme support opening up tons of access to tooling.

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. and Footer 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. patterns for faster, well designed site building will be available for all themes along with pattern previews in the theme directory.

Ben Evans Says

Also, I wanted to note, I’ve been triaging GitHub issues labeled Translation this week, to make sure things are moving forward. It is SO exciting to see so many new locales represented in our GitHub repo! Currently, we have Greek, Serbian, Indonesian, and German translations of lesson plans either in-the-works or published already!

Pooja Derashri Says

We also have Hindi lesson plan available to review, I am just half way through the lesson plan review and will publish it soon. So then we will have one more locale lesson plan in our Learn WP site. 

Amit Patel Says

Note takers for upcoming meetings:

Project Thread: GitHub Process Updates

  • Please review and provide comments on the GithubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that 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/ process updates.

 UX Feedback

  • During a recent episode, UXUX UX is an acronym for User Experience - the way the user uses the UI. Think ‘what they are doing’ and less about how they do it. designer @Piccia Neri reviewed Learn.WordPress.org. This post is a way to find the timestamps AND a request any support on filing GitHub issues for this, alongside updating this post with the GitHub issue links.
  • Next actions here include others also reviewing the suggestions and opening corresponding GitHub issues at https://github.com/WordPress/Learn/issues/new.
  • Many of these are quite doable.  It would be ideal for coordinating with folks in #design to assess if/when Learn will get the same treatments as WordPress.org’s homepage redesign.

Hacktoberfest opportunities

  • Giving a shoutout here to start that @Chetan Prajapati inquired about participating in Hacktoberfest. Thanks for the inspiration.
  • Hacktoberfest is a way for open-source contributors to discover and contribute to projects.  In exchange for meeting the requirements, participants can receive a digital badge, t-shirt, or a tree planted in their name.
  • This year, there is also a new way to contribute including low or no-code options. That would fit in perfectly with the content we need to revise or create for WordPress 6.1 release, as well as translation initiatives.   See more at https://hacktoberfest.com/about/#low-or-non-code.
  • As this does require a GitHub pull request for the systems to detect your contribution, please refer to the GitHub issue describing the process.  Always feel comfortable asking a question in this channel as well for help, and if you see other issues you’d like to have labeled to count toward contribution.

Updates

  •  @GoGinaMarie has volunteered to turn @Allie Nimmons Course Design Review and Best Practices videos into a team post this week. Thanks Gina!

Cross-team Collaboration Initiatives

#docs team would like to collaborate further on how our content connects together. We have a few other ways to collaborate, including a changelog feature to display on the front end of content, how our content links to each other, notifying each other of updates/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. that may pertain to us, etc.  These would be development contributions for HelpHub, DevHub, and LearnWP.

Ideally, a working group could form after November 7.  This would allow time to focus on WordPress 6.1 content to be created/revised/shipped first. Folks interested in this include: @n8finch, @webtechpooja, @colorful-tones, @sagarladani

#polyglots has begun working more closely with our team as well. We are starting to sort out workflows for the translation of content on LearnWP and really excited by the many folks interested in helping. As we continue, we will work out how to ask for reviews from Polyglots along the way.

Request for Comments (RFC)

Please check out the following and add your comments:

  1. Proposal: Faster Course Development with Video-Based Courses
  2. Project Proposal: Content Localization

Online Workshop Facilitators

Sprint: WordPress 6.1 is coming!

  • See what needs to be revised/created in WP 6.1: https://github.com/orgs/WordPress/projects/33/views/10
  • This release is for RC1, release candidateRelease Candidate A beta version of software with the potential to be a final product, which is ready to release unless significant bugs emerge. 1.  At this time, we reach a freeze.  When those tickets are sorted, and the RCRelease Candidate A beta version of software with the potential to be a final product, which is ready to release unless significant bugs emerge. ships, we can begin working on video content as well for this release. 
  • Look in this for coming changes: Information Sources for WP 6.1
  • To create content or test versions, Use this site creation tool while creating content and testing WordPress 6.1. It already has Theme Unit Test Data, the new Twenty Twenty Three theme, and will have the most current RC available when it ships. Note, your sites will only work for 4 hours, but if you need longer, I can help you override that. That tool from InstaWP is available for #training #docs #marketing and #fse-outreach-experiment teams to use while making content or testing.
  • Ideally, we hope to have all 6.1 content ready by Oct 28. 
  • This is a list of everything for 6.1 with a priority of High.
  • Want to volunteer for a topic?  If no one is assigned, comment on the post requesting you be assigned to the topic. Need access to LearnWP? Leave a note in the channel.  Team Reps and Faculty members can provide that access for you.

Open Discussions

  • Daylight savings: We are about 3 weeks away from some of the Northern Hemisphere adjusting clocks. In 2 weeks, when the Americas/EMEA meeting happens again, we can take a poll to decide if we stick with UTC time or adjust to local time changes. Usually APAC does not shift, as many nations do not observe daylight saving time.
  • Ticket review and publish process: Approving tickets from “review in progress” to “published” was clarified by @courane01, @west7, and @psykro.

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.

Please review the WP Translation Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/.
here: https://make.wordpress.org/training/2022/09/23/wptranslation-day-contributor-day/

Courtney Says

On Friday for 12 hours, we will hold our 2nd contributor day focusing on Translation. Note that #polyglots are primarily focused on the 28th, but we are planning this to be an event on Friday.

Individual Learner Survey

Please help us gather some data about learning styles and how folks learn WordPress. We would appreciate your efforts in promoting this across social media and any other suitable locations. Also, go take this survey yourself.

HactoberFest Update

Last year, @Chetan Prajapati inspired the team to participate in Hacktoberfest. Previously this was primarily a developer oriented event. Efforts are underway for participation again this year, and now include options for technical content and translations. This is perfect timing with WP Translation Day qualifying, and WP 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).

Supporting WP Diversity

Julia Says

Hi Training team! @jillbinder and I have a question for you! Jill is thinking about how to develop clear lesson plans so that other people in the WordPress community can lead the WPDiversity workshops (titled Diverse Speaker Training and Organizing Diverse & Inclusive WordPress Events ). I know that the Learn WordPress Lesson Plan page could be a great home for this. Are there specific requirements around the facilitator notes and slide deck format? Specifically, can the slides be in Google Slides and Google Docs, or would you prefer a different format?

Drawing attention here to the work Jill is doing for WP Diversity efforts and how Learn can best support that. If you would like to get involved on that, please review the comments there.

@Allie Nimmons held a Course design meeting yesterday

Review Lesson item – Extend a Block Theme Course

Jonathan says

Hey there @faculty-smes. The first four lessons for my “Extend a 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. Theme Course” are finally at a point where I’m happy for folks to review them.All the lessons in this module are aimed to reviewing the fundamentals of a block theme:
minimum required files – https://github.com/WordPress/Learn/issues/868
creating templates – https://github.com/WordPress/Learn/issues/869
creating template parts – https://github.com/WordPress/Learn/issues/870
exporting the theme – https://github.com/WordPress/Learn/issues/955
To make reviewing easier, I’ve linked to the lesson content in the body of the GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that 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/ issue, under the heading Draft lesson for Review. This will take you to a markdown document in a separate repository.I’m creating the course content in GitHub so that it can be developed and reviewed publicly, before I migrate it over to a course on Learn WordPress.

Participation in team meetings

We have some new folks with us today that are unfamiliar with how teams run meetings. Usually these are Slack chats, no Zoom. This was for global bandwidth, language, and other concerns. It still helps folks participate async as well.

Additionally, we’d like to resume including updates from multiple people during team meetings.

If you would like to help facilitate parts of meetings, such as covering a specific news item that you are especially working on or tracking, we’d love to include you.

Open Discussions

Destiny Says

I commented on the agenda with some items I’d love raised with the team during the meeting but it looks like we didn’t get to them today.For future reference, is there a better way for folks to engage directly async? 
Hey folks! We are looking to recruit two more people to be Welcome Wrangles members for October. More information on how to perform this work is in this handbook page. If you’re interested, please feel free to reach out to me, @Amit Patel@Ben Evans or any one of your Training Team reps!
I also wanted to flag that the meeting calendar shows team meetings every week instead of alternating office hours – https://make.wordpress.org/meetings/#training can we update this?Also, can we consider an APAC Coffee Hour?   I’m happy to host this additional Coffee Hour, or we can enlist another Faculty Member (or hold rotations )

Amit Patel Says

Am in favour of rotation methodology and i am in as well 

Hauwa Abashiya Says

Destiny I’d say update the agenda directly rather than comment. That way we don’t miss it.
I updated the Calendar yesterday and all seemed fine, let me know if that is not the case

Destiny Says

I’d say update the agenda directly rather than comment. That way we don’t miss it.
My comments are longer than bullet points though, and that seems to disrupt the flow of the agenda post which seems to only have headlines. We are ok if I go in to add comments directly into the agenda?I think another thing about doing it this way is that people who are following the post won’t receive an update if i edit the post, so folks who’d like to engage async there won’t receive the appropriate updates 

Amit Patel Says

@Hauwa Abashiya, We did discussed yesterday during APAC faculty meeting regarding above point. Since we will need update 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. for both time zone faculty meeting. So sometimes for any one point, there might be multiple opinions or suggestions. Adding comment will really help to finalize any one of the decision after checking what other faculty team members suggest. I am okay with commenting first as compared to updating post directly. Hope that makes sense.

 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.

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.
