Weekly Team Update from Jason

Verbal Highlights

Anything blocking you? Anything interesting to report?

  • [ladybenko] Just came back from holidays \o/ Also, I'll be a speaker at View Source Berlin (You can hover over the text to get a tooltip with the author -- in this case, ladybenko)
  • [callahad] Great reception at PyCon; from the people I spoke with, our best regarded products are MDN and Rust, not Firefox. Also, *huge* round of applause when I mentioned Let's Auth.
  • [havi] Berlin Tech Speaker Meetup planning is full-speed ahead
    • [mikee] visa letters to Tech Speakers have been sent out, also doing some last minute support for a conf. we'll be going to.

  • creating demos of Grid, figuring out autoplacement (I hope)
  • I need to make a lot of progress on my feature article for Net Mag
  • I keep getting sucked into thinking about Progressive Web Apps. Tweeted a ton. Had a lot of conversations in response. Keep walking away. Don't write more, Jen. Focus. Focus on layout. Leave 'PWA' alone... walk away...
