Weekly Team Update from Jason

  • Especially want to figure out metrics and closing the loop on bugs we file
    • Interested in touring Kennedy Space Center on Thursday? See your inbox.

Special Guest: Bill Walker

Speaking on "Progressive Apps" / "Web Application Developer Initiative" (WADI)

Central question: What can we do to make the Web right now much more attractive to mobile app developers?

  • Talking to big framework players and "top 100" app makers
  • Accelerating delivery of "Three Key APIs" across browsers:
    • Service Worker, W3C Manifest, Web Push
  • Talking w/Chrome dev rel and BD - finding that we're on the same page.
  • Need to emphasize Mozillians dogfooding APIs as they land, file bugs
    • Set keyword: DevAdvocacy, also block on WADI tracker bug (1201717)
  • Service Workers as the opposite of appcache - an api for building apis -- needs examples.
