Docs Team Update for 8th January

After a break over Christmas, we had our first chat last night. Here’s the status of our current projects:

  • Handbooks – work on the handbooks has started. We’re in the process of creating the tables of contents. The deadline for completion of this is 21st January. Handbooks post
  • Help Tabs – @DrewAPicture is going to revise the Network Admin Help Tabs for WordPress 3.6. We think that a complete review of the Help Tabs is a larger project, and work spent reconceiving and rewriting the content is only worthwhile if the UIUI UI is an acronym for User Interface - the layout of the page the user interacts with. Think ‘how are they doing that’ and less about what they are doing. for the Help Tabs is itself usable. We will put some thought into how different users might use the Tabs and how we can make them more useful for them.
  • Docs Sprint – I plan to run a docs sprint at 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. Norway, which I’ll be attending in a few weeks. In February, we’ll look at how we can package together mini doc projects that WordCamp organisers can run at hack days.
