Standing Agenda Items
Weekly Team Update from Jason
- Jason traveling over the next week -- MS EDGE Conf., etc.
Anything blocking you? Anything interesting to report?
- [callahad]: Dashboard v1 functionality is in: https://mozdevs.github.io/devrel-dashboard/
- We need to triage our DevAdvocacy bugs. To discuss at the end of the meeting.
- News: Oculus is building a walled garden for apps, implications for WebVR? https://support.oculus.com/878170922281071 + https://twitter.com/Tojiro/status/714473076709175296
- Jen: I'll be traveling the next three weeks. I leave Wednesday for Seattle. Having meetings at Adobe on Thursday, Microsoft on Friday. Present at An Event Apart Seattle on Monday. Then jump on a plane and head to Sydney Australia, and later onto Melbourne, where I'm doing three presentations.
- I've been talking with Patrick Brosset, Jeff Griffiths and Bryan Clark about Dev Tools for Grid (via email). Also been talking to Jason and Potch in a separate conversation. Potch & Jason will be staring work on something simple that we can use. I believe, there's a big competitive opportunity here to ship some kind of simple Grid tool and get people using Firefox (instead of Chrome) to try out Grid. (If we can beat Chrome to the punch).
- Dietrich: Telemetry. What questions can we answer about the in-the-wild compat issues users experience? What are the larger questions you have about our user base?
- Jen: ask about velocity of use
- Flaki: help hacks, send me your things that you want shown/highlighted in tweets by MozHacks (send them firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com)
- Dietrich: Welcome Gio!
- Gio: Thank you Sir :)
