March 2021 Sprint Planning

The Training team is using the Sprint method to determine what we are working on and to determine our timeframe for delivery.

What is a Sprint?

[Sprints] are fixed length events of one month or less to create consistency. A new Sprint starts immediately after the conclusion of the previous Sprint.

Sprint Content on Learn Goals (Lesson Plans)

Theme: How to contribute to the WordPress Project with screenshots and videos (guidelines for how content within screenshots and videos appear).

Think about these with as much consideration toward 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). ( as possible.

Ideally, these guidelines could be adopted by other teams as well, turned into a video series of workshops, and help onboard others into several parts of the project. Additionally, it lifts needing to maintain this from our team handbook into content on Learn.

Sprint Functionality of Learn Goals

Sprint Team Functionality Goals

Stakeholders Meeting

We missed our goal for February on planning a meeting to kick off stakeholders meetings. These would be cross-team collaboration in the organization of our goals. Ideas have included:

  • Learn Functionality
    • Learn Working Group/Community
  • Content Planning
    • Release squad
    • Marketing
    • Docs

Next action: learn from Marketing how release comms planning occurs and from Docs when they plan content for pending releases. Plan an initial review post 5.7 release date.
