Community Building Education Update – 29 April 2014

Note: This is the first in what I plan to be weekly updates about the work we’re doing as part of the Education and Wiki Working Groups, part of the community building team at Mozilla. I’ll tag these updates with mozilla as well as cbt-education and wwg when appropriate.

Wiki Working Group

On Tuesday of last week we help our twice-monthly Wiki Working Group meeting (notes). Key takeaways:

  • We celebrated becoming an official sub-module of websites.
  • We talked about planning an in-person meet-up and sprint at this year’s Wikimania in London.
  • We talked about the need to clarify our vision for the wiki as a prerequisite for creating the long-term roadmap, as well as the need start on a short-term roadmap to address critical needs.

During our next meeting we’ll continue work on both the short- and long-term roadmaps. If you’re interested in contributing, please get involved!

Later in the week, a few of us fixed the following bugs:

  • Bug 858844 – Sortable tables on wiki no longer sortable
  • Bug 1001710 – Recent changes to wiki.mozilla.org break bugzilla plugin
  • Bug 819708 – wiki.mozilla.org editor wont show rich text editor

MozCamp Planing Session

Last week a handful of contributors gathered at the San Francisco office to plan MozCamps 2014, the next phase of what we’re still calling “MozCamps” but which we plan to evolve into a new kind of event.

I’m still synthesizing everything we covered during the planning session, but the most relevant takeaway in terms of the education working group was this list of community building skills that the group generating during a brainstorming session about what content should be included in the new MozCamps. This week I’m working to integrate that list into the existing community building curriculum roadmap.
