  • Wrapping up node-firefox stuff (i.e. pending bug test cases), AppsEng should be taking over now
  • Preparing/researching for upcoming talks: Web Components, and also FirefoxOS new apis in action + cool things sole likes like Web Audio. All at the same time! Currently trying to learn how to use WifiDirect (using Guillaume's Hacks post)
  • Got lots of input/feedback/discussions on how to involve a) people from mozilla that are not usually front facing b) people from the community. Are we all getting this too? probably related to the radical participation notion! (Are we still discussing this?). I will write my ideas to devrel this week.
  • I asked someone who worked on Hello and they said they don't really have a "user story" for developers, it is more of an "end user" project, i.e. there's no developer API
  • Might want to write a small demo / update on how to push gaia apps to a phone using the new WebIDE feature, so the team gets feedback/usage/testing. Jeff suggested not to publish it in Hacks just in case it gets backed out even if it's in Nightly. What do we think of this? Shall it go to Hacks or to a personal blog? (Sole has spare website bandwidth "to stop a train" as we say in Spanish)

Meeting Structure

TL;DR: Let's keep this to 30 minutes and only include items in the agenda if they can be resolved in the meeting.

Q & A

Q (sole): In the DevTools Apps Meeting, there's some work being done to directly push Gaia apps from WebIDE, without a separate build step. Cool, but might get backed out. Should we blog about this and other experimental features?

A: Yes! Just put a big warning sign flagging that it's experimental. BIG UNDER CONSTRUCTION GIF!

Q (callahad): Should we maintain the upcoming CFP section in meeting?

A: Nah, we have the calendar.

Q (sole): People ask me all the questions re: community involvement, what should I answer, who should I point to'

A: Dietrich and Havi have been meeting to put together a proposal around templates, etc. Want to do a small pilot with a limited number of speakers that we route through an application form, but we'll probably invite the first cohort as an alpha test, and so we can announce a program in Q2.
