WordPress Community Deputy Training

This course is a new approach to training deputies on the Community Team. Previously, we had focused training on tasks, like reviewing applications and budgets, or mentoring organizers. We still want to train people on tasks, but recently we decided to spend more time on open source methods and how they’re used in WordPress community organizing — basically explaining the “why” behind the “how we do things.” We hope this will help our deputies to feel more confident in the work they do on this team.

Important: You won’t see the quiz questions unless you log in to take the course!

Thanks so much for your time and interest in helping the community team make the WordPress open source project a better place to be! We couldn’t do this without you.

Modules

The values of the WordPress project: theory and practice

Welcome! This training will cover some basic principles of open source culture and methodology, and then show how those ideas drive WordPress community organizing. Most of the quizzes in this training call for long-form written answers.
