Other Topics

Q & A

Anything Else?

Dietrich: Just got back from a developer marketing offsite.

  • Most people were aware of what the others were doing, so we're doing a decent job of cross-team communication.
  • People liked the idea of picking a topic and just hammering on it for an entire quarter.
    • Great idea, but what themes, and how do we implement them?
      • (sole) we're pretty stretched already re: covering important stuff, not sure if it's "good" to focus everyone on the same topic?

Havi: Ongoing conversations about where we take Hacks (redesign, etc.)

  • PTO last week of March/April, but would like a standalone meeting to discuss where Hacks goes in Q2.
  • Havi to look at calendars and schedule something.

Dietrich: MDN developer event planning.

  • PDX View Source conf at the Portland Art Museum (PAM)
  • 400 person event
  • Logistics? Potch: WiFi, Food, A/V, Power. Get those right, and it will all be OK.
  • MDN will reach out to us as needed, but DevRel should keep an eye on developments and proactively help where we see opportunities.

Jason: Do we want to bring Speaker Evangelists with us to the Whistler work week?

  • Dietrich: Looking into it.
  • Jason: In the worst case, we can use our own budget.

Jason: We want to make sure we make good use of our work week. Planning forthcoming.

  • Current ideas include practicing / critiquing presentations, hacking on rPi's, etc.
    • sole: I can't hack / focus during work weeks. Too much going on. (+1 callahad)
    • callahad: Food / drink restrictions? Gluten-free option + non-booze-centric would be good

Potch: Dave Camp doesn't bullshit. I asked him how we were doing. He's genuinely happy. Go us!

Havi: Going to Berlin for an MDN hack weekend. A few participants are also in our tech speakers program pilot.

  • How do our teams (MDN + DevRel) work together? We overlap, but are not identical.
  • Aiming for 5 participants paired 1:1 with MoCo folks.
  • Also overlap with MDN Fellowship Program; ideally folks will only be in one of the programs.
