Office Hour - Contributors - February 25, 2021

Hi folks,

It’s been a while, but we are hosting another Office Hour from 2021-02-25T15:00:00Z2021-02-25T16:00:00Z.

If you signed up for the mailing list mentioned here, you should have gotten an invite from me. You should RSVP to that to get a notification.

Note: The meeting link will be available in the invite.

Here is what you need:

  1. A working headphone :headphones: (with a mic :studio_microphone:).

  2. Camera :video_camera:. Optional - We would love to see you though!

  3. Something to stay hydrated :tea::tropical_drink: .
    Sorry, you will have to bring your own because of the nature of meeting. :frowning:

Here is the agenda for the meeting:

  1. Quick 10 second intros of everyone.

  2. Share updates and context about what the staff team are working on.

  3. Get feedback about what you’re all currently working on, what you’re interested in doing and what we can do to help.

The broad topics we’d like to discuss are

  • Ongoing translation efforts and the potential for adding new languages
  • Code Radio - primarily any issues with the client itself
    • Integrating our chat client into the Code Radio site
  • Upcoming curriculum additions, including the mathematics and data science curricula

Note: We will add/update items before the meeting if need arises. If you have something specific that you would like to add please let us know in the comments.

P.S: Here is a list of all the office-hour meetings we have had.


Thanks to all of the 15 contributors who attended this office hour.

Here is a quick summary of the points discussed during this meeting:

  • Deactivating certain notifications for freeCodeCamp has been communicated to Crowdin; however, each contributor could turn off unwanted notifications for their account as needed.

  • We would need to favor a translation of a word over other translations. Although suggesting a preferred translation for a word could be possible using glossary, it would need further configuration.

  • Although teaching development setup is essential, starting directly with coding is more beginner friendly and introduces less friction. Users could be directed to news articles that cover relevant topics.

  • Randy is working on project based curriculum where he tries to cover a certain number of new topics in each project. Contributors who would like to propose projects and project mockups please contact @RandellDawson for more info.

Here is a link for the list of concepts and projects that Randy has been working on to expand the project based curriculum.
