Week 1: WordPress.tv Event Video Management Recap

Hi, I’m Jerry, and I’m our weekly reporter for WordPress.tv Event Video management. As a team, we met up over Skype to get to know one another and kick things off.   Owing to differing schedules (definitely a global team here!) we are primarily “meeting” and communicating via a P2 blog we’ve set up, and that has been working very well for us.  And we’ve also been publishing 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. videos and learning the ropes over at wordpress.tv and the system that has been put in place over there, which is new to us all.

WordPress.tv Event Video Management Update 12/06/12

This Week:

  • Initially we have a queue of pending videos to publish, with lots of great speakers from WordCamp Chicago and WordCamp Raleigh.
  • We’ve published over 20 videos to date, with more to come!
  • Begun documenting the approval standards and best-practices for videos published to the site.
  • Been fooled a few times by spammers.  ::shakes fist::
  • Learned a lot by watching others teach.  🙂

Coming Week

  1. Continue to build documentation around our processes.
  2. ???
  3. Profit.

OK, joking about that last part. For now the feeling in the room is that we are learning by doing, and our action plan is informed by the things we are learning as we publish content. In other words, watch this space for more news…
