11/21 and 11/28 Team Meetings Cancelled + Asynchronous Planning for WordCamp US Contributor Day

Hello team! Last week we decided in our weekly team meeting that we will not have any more formal meetings before WordCamp US. This means that our regularly scheduled meeting TODAY, 11/21, and next Tuesday, 11/28 at 19:00 UTC in the #training channel of the WordPress Slack will NOT happen.

We will adjust the meeting time after WordCamp US. Based on the results of our Doodle survey and multiple conversations over the course of recent team meetings, the weekly team meeting is likely to be rescheduled to Thursdays at 19:30 UTC after WordCamp US. Please post any last comments/thoughts/issues with the new meeting time on our post about the survey as soon possible.

We DO still need to finish planning for WordCamp US Contributor Day (in Nashville on December 3rd) as a team. This conversation should continue asynchronously in the #training channel and in the comment thread of our 2017 WordCamp US Contributor Day post. We will formalize an agenda in the next week and a half as WordCamp US approaches. If you are not available to attend WordCamp US in person and want to participate in a team check in at some point that day, please comment on the post with your interest and availability that day (please include time zones with all times or use UTC time!).

Please ask any questions you have as comments on this post or in Slack! I am looking forward to seeing many of you at WordCamp US and regrouping virtually with all of you in Slack.

Thanks team!

Recap of August 1, 2017 meeting

Updates on lesson plans, testing, and copyediting in progress

“Enqueueing Scripts and Styles”
@estes.chris reviewed @jenwill LP “Enqueueing Scripts and Styles.” After much discussion it was decided to:
1. Add meaningful learning objectives
2. Aplit the individual examples (how to enqueue X, Y, Z things) into “Stretch your Skills” section. This will require a change in the Style Guide and the wording might change.
3. Add a note somewhere about how we’re not teaching PHP here in this particular plan

@aimeegc will do 1 and 3. @bethsoderberg might grab #2 unless someone else does first.

Updates from last week’s team call

Content Flow
@aimeegc is working on the content flow task and is working through the rabbit holes. We may discuss this in the next video call. @aimeegc will post in the blog on the training site.

Progress report on training Asset Inventory

@conradhallauthor reported: “As a newbie to the #training channel, I have made time to read a few of the posts from the team. The meeting recaps have been quite helpful. If you think of the training site and team in terms of a house, it’s essential to know the existing structure before exploring what’s in each room.

After you know the structure and room contents, you can start thinking about what changes to make.

I have started building an outline for the container that will hold the inventory. I’m using the “hot mess” as my starting point. Which, by the way, seems less of a mess than it may feel to those very familiar with it.”

Do we want to do another call next week?

Yes. We will be using Zoom and it will be at the normal time.
