Training Team 20 December 2018 Update

Slack Log

The Training Team held a video meeting to discuss the goals for the team in 2019.

There were several new contributors in attendance so we reviewed the team’s mission and how the team works before beginning.

2018 Team Goals

We reviewed the goals we had set for 2018, which included:

1. Re-create team handbook
2. Move lesson plans to GitHub
3. Restructure make.wordpress.org/training
4. Fix broken images
5. Update lesson plans for 4.8-4.9/Gutenberg
6. Make workshop recommendations
7. Accessibility workshop

2018 Team Accomplishments

We had accomplished several of those goals and a few more this past year. A quick summary includes:

1. Re-create team handbook (expected by the end of the year)

2. Move lesson plans to GitHub

3. Restructure make.wordpress.org/training

4. Fix broken images (perhaps not all are fixed, but moving to GitHub addressed the problem)

5. Make workshop recommendations

plus

6. On-boarding improvements including a PDF and videos

7. Team management on Trello and in Waffle.io

8. Creation of the https://wptrainingteam.github.io/ page

9. Work towards the relaunch of the learn.wordpress.org site including collaboration with the #design, #marketing, and #meta teams.

Goals that we didn’t quite accomplish include:

1. Update lesson plans for Gutenberg

2. Accessibility workshop

2019 Team Goals

So turning towards setting goals for 2019, there was discussion about needing more contributor on-boarding videos on our YouTube channel (thanks @fahim!), and @courtneyengle suggested we make plans now for maintaining our lesson plans such as tagging them in GitHub with things such as WordPress version and whether there are screenshots.

We also talked about some specific lesson plans that we would like to develop in the new year such as a focus on Gutenberg and accessibility and lesson plans about plugins.

The team is excited about launching the learn.wordpress.org site in 2019 and the possibilities that will bring! We should have a complete list of team goals available on our Trello board soon.

Next meeting 3 January 2019 at 1930 UTC.

December 20th Support Team Meeting Summary

General announcements

We’ll be skipping next weeks meeting, as it falls in the middle of many holiday days for many, and we’ve all earned a day of relaxation and holiday rest.

The refined Forum Guidelines (also referred to as Support Guidelines, so we may re-use them on our other support platforms) are now live. They’re condensed, and many sections have instead been dumped in a “not as critical” FAQ section to avoid as much confusion as possible.

WordPress 5.0.2

Some issues with WooCommerce orders after a core change in 5.0.2, but has been addressed by Woo them selves for now, and is being tracked in #45719

Checking in with international liaisons

Community members from Italy, Sweden, Russia, Netherlands, Brazil, Spain and Greece took part in our festive holiday meeting, there were even Christmas trees, confetti and balloons (in emoji)!

The community in Greece have also moved their forums over to WordPress.org

Read the meeting transcript in the Slack archives. (A Slack account is required)

Following the release of WordPress 5.0, a number of people who had been warned re auto-replies and unmonitored emails had their plugins closed. In addition, we’re working through the list of bounces (it’s very long), abandoned user accounts, and plugins self-declared by authors to be deprecated, abandoned, or no longer supported.
