Weekly Team Update from Jason
- (Someone take notes for Jason)
- Keep weekly notes on your accomplishments
- Stack Overflow - half of questions not being answered (which categories, exactly?)
- Hacks rebrand
- Potch working on it
- One of our metrics for Q2 (see link below) will be our subscriber count on our YouTube channel.
- Aubrey onboarded last week; will be working on RPi / other IoT initiatives with us.
- Done with Fluent and Twin Cities Code Camp!
- 2 Talks: Mobile Web Debugging workshop w/ Mike Taylor and a lightning talk on FxOS + Valence
- Workshop on mobile web debugging was ok-but-not-great, mainly due to a last-minute format change by O'Reilly from workshop to 3.5-hour lecture :(
- Valence is way more important than I had believed. About 10% of our class brought an iPhone and a Windows laptop. Valence is the only way to remote debug that.
- A few folks had heard of FxOS, several questions about when it's coming to North America (and mainly surprise that it's available in retail elsewhere in the world -- clearly we didn't communicate that well.)
- Potch was a master showman at the Mozilla booth; Oculus + Firefox stole the show... though it was hard making the connection to Mozilla for folks. "Cool Oculus, what's with the Firefox logos?"
- Possibly an issue with the Rift being so new itself. People aren't familiar with it or its limitations.
- Twin Cities Code Camp:
- 2 Talks: Mobile Web Perf Debugging and Intro to Rust
- Mobile web talk was good enough, but I really need to figure out how to make it pop more.
- This is potentially a problem with my own enthusiasm for the subject. ;)
- Rust talk was f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c. Absolutely packed room, tons of enthusiasm.
- I'm getting rather good at this talk; looking forward to giving it two more times this quarter.
- Tweet with photo: https://twitter.com/dc_strategic/status/592045237792419840 "Netflix has nothing on this. #FullHouse for #Rust at #tccc18. Big thanks to @callahad"
- https://twitter.com/bsstahl/status/592053867807805440 "I'm liking what I see of @rustlang in @callahad's #TCCC18 presentation. The next time I HAVE TO write C code, I'm going to try it in Rust."
- DevRel notes:
- Lots of folks were impressed with the Fx tools ("haven't looked at those in a year; they've come a long way").
- The little event bubbles in the Inspector were complimented several times ("Oh, I always have trouble finding what elements have events attached to them").
- Tech Speakers pilot launched, initial meeting went off without a hitch
- Also launched internal tech speaker micropilot with part of Firefox OS UX group.
- Hacks post on Firefox OS animations, published today
- More progress on FxOS animations patch, the Taipei UX team is finding app opening slow, but it might just be their build
- IoT planning for Taipei and Tokyo weeks
- Launched Moz Tech Speakers, Session 1. Great beginning session.
- Invited Soumya Deb and Andrzej Mazur (unintended, he received an invite, although I hadn't submitted his name, not sure how this happened, but all is good)
- Hacks calendar week of April 27: Firefox OS, Animations & the Dark Cubic Bezier...; Wifi debugging; Creating a mobile app from a simple HTML site: Part 3; jitsi post on WebRTC
- Newsletter in progress
- Fluent was great- huge enthusiasm for the WebVR stuff
- Working on wireframes for Hacks Blog redesign
- Reaching out to Creative for some visual guidance
- Will send around for bikeshedding
- I'm MCing JSConf!
- Working on some canned talk material / Content kits
- Add Hacks ideas to https://wiki.mozilla.org/DevRel/Hacks
- Review the CFP calendar
(Try to keep things timeboxed and concrete. E.g., can we actually make a yes/no decision in this meeting? If not, discuss on list first.)
