2016 planning

You can join the presentation this Friday if you're interested.

Draft initiatives for H1:

  • Go Faster: System addons infrastructure complete. Documented, simple, easy to ship/update, easy to localize. Teams outside go-faster building system add-ons
  • Go Faster: Staged rollout of a system addon, with a/b testing, able to ship to a specified % of users
  • Go Faster: Measurement infrastructure in place. Telemetry for go-faster addons. Capture usage (Q1) and errors (Q2)
  • Go Faster: String delivery and updates are decoupled from trains. Go faster updates can contain string changes.
  • Idea town launch: Release opt-in platform that allows us to perform controlled tests of new high-visibility product concepts in the general release channel of Firefox
  • Idea town locale expansion: Expand Idea town beyond en-US
  • Idea town metrics dashboard: Metrics dashboard to aid experiment authors in making decisions

Mozlando updates

  • A Go-Faster demo session is scheduled at Mozlando. If you are leading a subproject, or otherwise have something Go-Faster related to present, assume a 5-10 minute presentation. Shiny visuals and demos strongly encouraged.
  • Do we want to have any other group discussions? Let me know and I'll get them added.

Q4 Goals

    • Ship Hello as a system add-on. [Subject to possible change.]
    • Launch IdeaTown and the first Experiment on it.
    • Design and build out automation to begin shipping go-faster code updates.
    • Ship security updates separately from trains.
