If you have team members planning to attend WCEU, let us know if you’d like to help organize the contributor table for the Training Team. @afshanadiya mentioned being part of the WCEU organizing team and would love to help.

Tuesday Training on Community

Lesson plans have been a foundational aspect of the Make WP Training team since 2013, initially with a goal of supporting WP Meetups. In that time, we haven’t widely connected with MeetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. organizers though. The Community team runs a monthly Tuesday Training series to support Meetup and WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. organizers. @harishanker invited @courane01 to coordinate on a post elevating using Lesson Plans as a way to prepare topics for Meetups. Included is a list of recently published lesson plans. Additionally, links to this post AND recent lesson plans will be in this month’s newsletter for Meetup organizers.

Translating Content on LearnWP

We’ve had quite a lot of interest in translating courses on LearnWP recently.  We are awaiting an idea/update from @dd32 in #meta on a good way to handle this before GlotPress is fully available on LearnWP. 

Proposal: Faculty Program Structure

If you haven’t already, please leave a comment on the proposal for the structure of the Faculty Program. We are eager to continue rolling this program out.

  4. Trello > GitHub, start a rough draft of Needs Analysis

Help is needed to move the Training team content management off Trello and onto GitHub. A few reasons include:

  1. Consistency with Docs
  2. Better tracking of contributions
  3. Automation tooling
  4. Having it within the WordPress/Learn repo for easier public visibility.

Migrating all of the content to GitHub will be tricky and help is needed to figure out the most reliable way to get every field and taxonomyTaxonomy A taxonomy is a way to group things together.

  4. I will work on getting the Sitemap lesson plan completed. Help Courtney with the Trello-GitHub migration.

@arasae

  1. I’m continuing work on theme.json lesson plan materials; this is definitely lending itself to more of a course-feel, as it’s such a large topic.
  2. I’m working on stringing together some lesson plans (for example, Using ‘Schema’ with Theme.json) that will likely build to a text-based course at some point. For now, though, I need to finish lesson plans one at a time. :smile:
  3. Limited time. This week has been even more limited than usual.
  4. Going to finish the video workshop I have on sidebars + adding a lesson plan with it. I’ll also try to finish a lesson plan on an Intro to Theme.json type plan, but we’ll see what time allows.

Yoast contributor day recap

@courane01 worked with @yvettesonneveld to assist the marketing team table during last Friday’s Yoast contributor day event. They wrote micro-copy related to each type of content on LearnWP, with links to the exact sources. They tried out the Social Image Generator 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 that Automattic acquired with plans of this coming to Jetpack announced.

February 2022 Team Sprint

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.

https://www.scrum.org/resources/what-is-a-sprint-in-scrum

Sprint Goals

Learn Content

We are currently using TrelloTrello Project management system using the concepts of boards and cards to organize tasks in a sane way. This is what the make.wordpress.com/marketing team uses for example: https://trello.com/b/8UGHVBu8/wp-marketing. to manage and keep track of the status of each piece of content on Learn (lesson plans, video workshops and courses). Every piece of content has its own Trello card. The Trello lists represent our Development Workflow, each list contains a card that explains how to use that list.

Types of themes:

  • 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: a theme made for FSE using HTMLHTML HTML is an acronym for Hyper Text Markup Language. It is a markup language that is used in the development of web pages and websites. templates and theme.jsonJSON JSON, or JavaScript Object Notation, is a minimal, readable format for structuring data. It is used primarily to transmit data between a server and web application, as an alternative to XML., allowing one to manage all parts of their site with blocks.
  • Universal theme: a theme that works with both the CustomizerCustomizer Tool built into WordPress core that hooks into most modern themes. You can use it to preview and modify many of your site’s appearance settings. and the Site Editor.
  • Hybrid theme: a classic theme that adopts a feature(s) of FSE, like theme.json or the template editor.
  • Classic theme: a theme built with PHPPHP PHP (recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML. http://php.net/manual/en/intro-whatis.php. templates, functions.php, and more that does not work with Site Editor.

See FSE Program: Answers from Round Three of Questions for information about the types of themes.

Please keep this in mind when creating and revising content for Learn WordPress.

WordPress 5.9

WordPress 5.9 releases today. Many thanks for those who have participated in content, testing, and more for this release.

Just want to say a big thank you to the whole training team for the great FSE trainings.

@wpfangirl

During this sprint, @webcommsat has supported @azhiyadev and @courane01 to get a list of the contributions and the details to include in the 5.9 list. There is a draft post summarizing the discussion on social posts, especially FSE, waiting to be published today. The link was posted in marketing to a preview earlier today if anyone wants to read it early. There is still an opportunity for people to continue working on the social media items for 5.9.

Information sources
@webcommsat has published the post to try and get it into this meeting, and thanks to @annezazu for reviewing the post. This post gives links at the top to where in training, marketing and for marcomms for the release, we can find the source of information. Anne has written some really excellent support documents. @webcommsat said she was really pleased to suggest we include some of them in the news post for the release too. https://make.wordpress.org/marketing/2022/01/25/social-media-drafting-update-for-5-9/ These documents will really help teams working on 5.9 materials.

Contributor Days

Yoast 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/. February 4

#marketing team will have a virtual table for the Yoast Contributor day. During this time, contributors will work on social media materials promoting content on LearnWP. All are welcome to attend.  We will be there to assist. As this is a hybrid event, it spans largely the EMEA timezone.

@nalininonstopnewsuk asked if it could be billed as a marketing and training joint table as it shows externally how we collaborate. This has been referred to @yvettesonneveld

WCEU 2022 Contributor Day, 2-4 June

We’ve been asked by organizers of WCEU 2022 if we will have any attendees in-person to help staff a training team contributor session. @webcommsat has sent some questions to the organizers on behalf of #marketing, this might help #training as well. These have been referred to @josearcos:

  • Do you have anymore information on what the format will be for WCEU contributor day this year for the teams please? In-person only, one dedicated day, the date?
  • What are the expectations for what help / participation you will need from the Marketing Team?
  • When do you also need to know by?
  • Will there be any pre-record items needed?

If we have team members planning to attend, now, or closer to the date, let us know if you’d like to help organize.

Training Team Goals 2022

A reminder that we’ve got some big goals for the year ahead. Please do make some time to scan through this overview. We’ll begin work on some of the March goals as soon as next week.

Feedback required

Due to the work in 5.9 content, these posts will be considered further next week. We can leave the discussion open and evolving for now.

  1. Social Learning Spaces (SLS) streaming platforms
  2. Learn WordPress version taxonomy

@Hugh Lashbrooke has drafted a new handbook page for the SLS streaming platforms. This may still be open for comments:

  • @nalininonstopnewsuk would like to suggest a reword to the introduction
  • @webcommsat questioned the following, her understanding of this means that slides should not have any footer/ mention of who has created them or presenting them? Is this different from a speaker at a Word Camp who might be presenting their own materials and therefore could be adding their social media link to slide footers?

For the sake of clarity, “logo” here includes company social media handles and even the company name written out in plain text in lieu of a logo.

APAC meeting

This Thursday we ran our first APAC friendly meeting. @webtechpooja provided an update on how it went which was positive. The recap of the meeting has been published. The next meeting will be held on January 27, 11:30 UTC.

Sprint

With the release of 5.9 scheduled for this month, all our efforts have been focused on updating Learn.

 Progress

The following lesson plans have been published:

  1. Difference between Reusable Blocks, Block Pattern, Templates, Template Parts (this will also need a workshop)
  2. How to Create and Register a Block Pattern (already has a workshop)
  3. How to Create Low-Code Block Patterns

This week’s content has been created by@webtechpooja and @courane01

This week’s content has been reviewed by @courane01 @rkohilakis @west7 @azhiyadev @arasae @jeffr0

Unrelated to the Sprint @topher1kenboe has published a workshop
Making a Plugin Inside the Dashboard.

As we work towards merging lesson plans and workshops it is important that we get workshops in parity with lesson plans. We can add those into the priorities for the February sprint, alongside the yearly goals as well.

Yes, they are now Live on Learn.

Instructions on reviewing and producing new content are listed in the  January 2022 Sprint post. If you get stuck, just drop us a message in Slack. If you would like to volunteer to do proofreading, please leave a comment on the January 2022 Sprint or in the #training Slack channel.

We’ve noted that we need to link up the Sprint and TrelloTrello Project management system using the concepts of boards and cards to organize tasks in a sane way. This is what the make.wordpress.com/marketing team uses for example: https://trello.com/b/8UGHVBu8/wp-marketing. further. Please ensure you are using and commenting on both for this time. As we work toward 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/ projects vs Trello, this may resolve itself.

Check-in

  1. What did you commit to last week?
  2. What did you do?
  3. Any blockers?
  4. What will you do next week?

@rkohilakis:

  • 1 and 2 – working on Template Parts lesson plans
  • 3 – other work project & updating FSE course part 1 based on on feedback received
  • 4 – Template parts lesson plans (edited) 

@kemmy99 finished working on lesson plans, waiting for the review

  • @webcommsat will pick this up for review but @azhiyadev noted that there is already a existing lesson plan that would render this one redundant. To be determined if this should be Creating a Static Page Template.

@webtechpooja:

  • 1 – Committed to work upon 2 lesson plan
  • 2 – Published a lesson plan on difference between reusable 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., block patterns, template and template parts
  • 3 – Time is the only blocker
  • 4 – Will work on Dual tone lesson plan this week

@courane01:

  • 1 – More content in lesson plans and workshops for 5.9, close the 2 posts on SLS + TaxonomyTaxonomy A taxonomy is a way to group things together. In WordPress, some common taxonomies are category, link, tag, or post format. https://codex.wordpress.org/Taxonomies#Default_Taxonomies.
  • 2 – Onboard proofreaders, multiple lesson plans + workshops (with captioning), assist #marketing with release content, report various #meta bugs, log bugs discovered while writing lesson plans, assist with testing said bugs for RC4
  • 3 – Time
  • 4 – Keep working on 5.9 related content, compare Jan sprint with Trello, assist with creating the Feb sprint, get some extra sleep.

@webcommsat:

  • 1 – General support to training and helping with joint working with marketing and the release
  • 2 – Supporting training on gathering and sharing of list of contributors who have contributed to 5.9, answering queries and signposting. Follow-up session for training and marketing and notes
  • 3 – Time. More documentation needed, but we need to be mindful of the time this takes and number of contributors available in the current pandemic
  • 4 – Continue to help with 5.9 materials and other items in the sprint

 @nalininonstopnewsuk:

  • 1 – Supporting proofing of courses as they came through in the sprint.
  • 2 – Added comments to these in the last week.
  • 3 – Unsure of what is available and sometimes in circles with which section of documentation to read. 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). (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accessibility) is an ongoing issue though this is for all of the project
  • 4 – More of the proofing and suggestions. It would help to understand when items are ready and if the published ones are complete.

February 2022 Sprint

We’ll draft this in time for next week’s meeting. We will still be spending time on 5.9 content and will cross-check this against our team goals for 2022.

Open Discussions

Join @azhiyadev @bph @jcasabona @schutzsmith and Matt Medeiros on Twitter Spaces for WPMinute on Monday January 31 at 8pm UTC. They will be discussing Learning WordPress. If you want to speak then you will need to use your phone to join in the conversation

If you do swing by #core during the release, please remember a “radio silence” as they work to ship this. After the post is live on wordpress.org/news, you are eagerly welcome to share the news. Generally, once you see it announced in #announcements you can go ahead and publicize it. On the bottom of the About Page in 5.9, a link to Learn will appear. As we come to a close – well-done everyone! This is the first time as a team we’ve worked to get content out alongside a release.

@webcommsat and @marybaum have done an amazing job on all things MarComms.  We’ll have a few more resources to help you share about the release over the next week.
