Standing Agenda Items
Weekly Team Update from Jason
- Salvador de la Puente (:salva) has joined DevRel to work on Progressive Web Apps! Yay!
- We're tabling the Event Sponsorship / Speaker Request Form questions until our website gets set up.
- London: We're going to have a 2 hour block for just us, otherwise, plan what teams you want to meet with. Tell Jason.
Anything blocking you? Anything interesting to report?
- [jensimmons]: announcements at Google I/O... uh...
- Big announcements, but what's Mozilla's place? Should we be affirming Google's vision? Working for something different? Need to come out strong using our own language, advocating for the Web as envisioned by Mozilla's Mission.
- "They've redefined the word 'progressive'" and they're forcing URLs as an on-ramp to Android Apps instead of a discrete app store.
- (dietrich): Two notes: 1) They can't run a conference. You could not attend sessions. 2) Nothing significant in the Keynote was actually ready, yet.
- [sole]: Brief message from Sole
- We should figure out how to more deeply connect with community when we're sponsoring or attending events near them. But how?
- [callahad]: Add-on signing bypass option delayed again, until 48.
- [salva]: working on the Google's PWA Road Trip (technical / not programmers audience: https://github.com/delapuente/presentations/pull/1/files)
- [jason] Performance Observer landing in Nightly soon https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1271487
- [jensimmons]: Want more of a high-level what-are-people-doing, at a higher level than just week-by-week.
- [sole]: Please, can we enforce shorter time bounds on digressions?
Plan for This Week
