Virtual WordPress Docs Sprint

What We're Working On

This month, we'll be working on adding to, and improving, the WordPress Theme Developer Handbook and the WordPress Plugin Developer Handbook.

These handbooks aim to teach developers most everything they’d need to know to create a WordPress theme or plugin.

Both handbooks are under active development, but are currently in draft form, and will be comprised of both existing Codex documentation and new articles written from scratch.

If you’ve considered contributing to WordPress, helping with WordPress documentation is a great way to learn WordPress and give back to the WP community.

We need help:

  • editing,
  • taking and editing screenshots,
  • preparing code snippets and examples,
  • writing tutorials, etc.

We’d love to have your help, so if you’re interested, please review the following documents beforehand to help get you up to speed.

Tutorial Example

Where possible (and relevant) please write things as a tutorial, as opposed to just explanation. This Child Themes page is a good example.

This tutorial opens by explaining child themes and is followed by a tutorial about how to create one. This helps users understand and gives them practical steps to follow.

    I'm looking forward to contributing, but since I missed the last meetup, and this one is virtual, I'm not quite sure where to start or what to work on. Any pointers are appreciated. I have the reference documentation. You can contact me directly if that helps. Just let me know. :)

      On my way from Bellevue. Missed my bus so will likely arrive shortly after 11:00 am.

      I'm heading out now, and will get there a little late as well. See you in a bit!

    Howdy C Blaise,

    While it's a virtual meetup, we (I) will be at Uptown Espresso in Seattle for the meetup, so if you want to meet in person, come join me.

    I'll be posting instructions and answering questions via IRC in #wordpress-sfd during the meetup.

    So, whether you meetup in-person or not, if you login to the IRC channel, we'll be able to help give you guidance and answer questions.

    While this will be a virtual meetup, those of us that have time and inclination can meetup at Uptown Espresso on Westlake in Seattle.

    Hope to see you there.
