User Stories for https://numpy.org

Inessa Pawson

The NumPy web team has begun redesigning https://numpy.org determined to transform the website into a welcoming and useful digital hub of all things NumPy. We are inviting all members of our large and diverse community to submit their user stories to help us fulfill our mission.


What are we looking for?

In simple, concise terms, a user story describes what a user needs to accomplish while visiting a website. Anyone who reads the user story must be able to understand why the user needs the functionality, and what is required to implement the story. User stories must have acceptance criteria. The shorter the story the better.


Examples of good user stories

1. Lotte is a library author that depends on NumPy. She is looking for information about major changes and a release date of the next version of NumPy. She would like to easily find it on the website instead of contacting the core team.


2. Yu Yan was introduced to NumPy in her first week of the Foundations of Data Science class. She is looking for a NumPy tutorial for absolute beginners in Mandarin. 


3. Tiago is a software developer. By day, he builds enterprise applications for a Fortune 100 company. By night, he cultivates his academic interests in statistics and computer science using various Python libraries. Tiago has an idea for a new NumPy feature and would like to implement it. He is looking for information on how to contact the person(s) in charge of such decisions.


Please note that at this stage of the numpy.org redesign our focus is not on expanding or improving the documentation but, rather, developing high-level content to provide information about the project to a multitude of stakeholders.

Thanks Inessa. I hope to see some user stories in particular from stakeholder groups that we may not be thinking about yet. Our first focus is probably something like: beginning user, advanced user, contributor. Beyond that there's groups like educators and packagers that I hope we can include specific content for soon. I'm sure we're still missing some groups, would love to hear specific needs or previous unsuccesfull/unsatisfactory attempts at engaging with NumPy.

Note that we're keeping track of these user stories in https://github.com/numpy/numpy.org/issues/42

Cheers,
Ralf
