I had a fun time getting caught up with you all. Thanks a lot for staying up late and joining in. You all are amazing!
Minutes of the Contributors meeting on 2019-09-20T14:30:00Z:
- @miyaliu introduced everyone and initiated the meeting.
- @raisedadead discussed about i18n efforts for chinese translation by the community on the main repo.
- @S1ngS1ng brought us up to speed with current state of freeCodeCamp.one codebase.
- @raisedadead went over a brief overview of the current state of the main repo codebase development work.
- We brainstormed on the approach for making the Chinese translation on the main repo upto good quality standards as already on freeCodeCamp.one
- @quincylarson gave a overview of the plans of adding the chinese guide articles on the forum.
Further Course of action:
Translating Curriculum Challenges:
- You as contributors can start making pull requests to the main repository.
- The current plan is to check, verify and update the translations in the
/curriculum/chinesedirectory on the main repo.
- Make sure you take a look at the Contribution guidelines. We have recently integrated a quick way to launch a development instance of freeCodeCamp.
- For the most part you should be able to take some translations from the current
freeCodeCamp-one/learnrepo, but please note that in the last 18 months the global community has made lots of updates to the curriculum, updating, removing and even adding challenges.
- One very good example of the contribution is @zhicheng’s PR:
- We will have additional translation guidelines for you all very soon. This is being tracked in
Translating freeCodeCamp UI:
- In addition to the freeCodeCamp’s curriculum, we would also need to make translations for the User interface.
@raisedadead is going to get in the initial groundwork done for this on the main repository. This is being tracked in
- Once this feature has landed you are welcome to make pull requests to update the strings to the Chinese.
Going Live and user migration to
- Once we have substantial changes updated to the main repository, the dev team will deploy a test version of the platform with the curriculum to the beta site.
- After we have a good QA and acceptance testing done the beta site, we can go live on the main .org domain. Details on this will follow.
- We would prepare a battle plan for migrating the current users on freeCodeCamp.one
Thanks and Happy Contributing.
