Roundtable and Q&A

  • Should we prioritise localisation groups?
    • How to fallback to a "Default" localisation gracefully? If English, how does that affect the user experience?
    • Ex. Falling back to English from Hindi might not be that bad; falling back from Japanese might hurt.
    • Are there weak communities that represent large user bases?
    • Sounds like we need to involve product.
  • Do we have a project manager?
    • No, but Sheila has open headcount and internal interviews for new PM candidates are underway.
    • Public job posting to come.
    • Some internal interviews will be happening in Orlando. The hope is to get a PM on GoFaster for Q1 2016.
