Meeting Notes

xx StopBadWare: Graphic design needs 4 - 5 screens

Brett's experience with 99 designs

  • mixed results
  • oversold Mozilla branding & process

take-aways: brief / refine brief based on early designs

  • lots of work; give feedback
  • would be fun to do one design challenge for for Mozilla Design collective -- get in queue now
  • make a "brief brief"
  • designers often ignore the brief!


1) Help design the courses & curriculum

  • developers
  • employers
  • people who train developers. professors, mentors, run training programs
  • existing courses
  • be available for regular phone calls, etc.
  • happy to tailor to whatever that person is able to give them
  • John Britton will help lead this effort

2) Running courses

  • 6-week long courses
  • 4 - 6 hours per week
  • course model: no one expected to teach anything
  • designed for self-learner to work through themselves
  • learn by themself with each other
  • supported if they get stuck if no one in group can figure out
  • more of facilitator role than teacher or lecturer role
  • Lucian: from the different perspectives: what would you as an employer want out of your web devs / designers
  • and as an employee, what would you like to learn, or need to know to stay current
  • Brett: how can less technical people contribute?
  • if you're a student, help tell your friends about it
  • Brett: question: entry-level courses?
