As a department, we want to be intentional about implementing and improving our craft so that we can become increasingly effective at what we do.
We strive to be an inclusive organization, our handbook is designed to be a collaborative document. Many people and teams have contributed to the content we’re starting with — and processes we’ve set up enable all to contribute as we iterate and improve.
By opening up the handbook to others outside of our department and Liferay, our goal is to provide an example of the open source ethos that guided Liferay in the early days.
This handbook is as good as we make it — so your contributions are incredibly valuable!
The things we’re prioritizing over the next few months are intended to make it easier for you to contribute, so your feedback will be much appreciated.
We’ll be managing the handbook using GitHub’s Projects feature for two main reasons:
Some people may hear “Github” and think — well, I’m not a coder, so I can’t really contribute — this could not be further from the truth.
Creating, managing, and simply participating in issues is a huge help to the department — of course writing guides and developing features is also very much welcome.
And of course, we also have a slack channel — #des-ops.
