Meeting Notes

  • Engineering update
    • reorg = Brendan CTO; our reporting structure does not change
    • Jonath (Firefox desktop), Andreas (mobile), Bob Moss (svs, eng ops) newly annointed VP reporting to BE
    • NB, Brendan, in a CNet interview, mentions Persona as one important way moz is "moving up the stack" (good sign :))
    • this doesn't change a whole lot for us
    • our motto for 2013: be explicit about differences of opinion we might have re client-side services and engineering
    • our other motto is One Engineer: One Focus - ergo, we should stop talking about crews

in lieu of crews, we have these three areas across which to distribute our efforts:

  • 3 major efforts for 2013:
    • Sign Into Web (Persona)
    • My Firefox (Next Generation Sync)
    • Native Persona SDKs (iOS, Android, etc.)
  • Don't have enough people for all 3. Focusing on 1 & 2 at the moment.
  • Sharing info with each other:
    • Monday meeting: raise points that all of us need to know, incl. strategic questions, things that impact the whole team
    • Save specific notes about area focus with smaller groups
    • Lloyd notes, regarding native persona (b2g, ios, etc), there's a lot of community - what's the minimum we need to do to keep people engaged and collaborating?
    • Ben has idea - takes as action item

Team Status


  • winding down for now
  • helping marketplace debug payment flows as necessary

Signin to the Web

  • Wondering about our train schedule? Wonder no more, Lloyd created an awesome tool that clear up any questions about where we are with our schedule
  • in issues, *always* include screenshots - this will make skinny happy (and it makes everyone happy, actually. a picture is worth 1024 words.
