Meeting Notes

  • Welcome Danny! Welcome Didem! Goodbye Ben's Hair!
  • Didem will help us think through how to make Persona successful in the market (e.g. marketing)
  • workweek is in two weeks: check your passports and flights and hotel.
    • Send agenda ideas to Tauni.
    • Will videoconf with Security team (in MV).
    • Sheeri (DB guru from IT) will be there thursday.
  • zach+shane speaking this week in warsaw
  • native update (the third team, after signin and picl): jedp is the (one) full-time member of Native Team, will need things from Signin, will provide things to PICL.
  • User Profile team is now reporting to Ben (ed [tech lead], max, olivier), will start attending this meeting next week
    • [Action]: Tauni - add them (UP) to Identity staff
    • so four teams: Signin, Native, PICL, UP (User Profile)
    • UP is generally adding new (computed) data to the user's profile, rather than managing existing/original data
  • from IRC: warner loves collaborative note-taking
  • Danny will sit in on PICL initially (esp scaling backend servers), but will evolve as needed. Will be at workweek.
  • tauni: how to use our weekly meeting best. proposal: each team picks a rep, gives a 1-2min update. Send improvement suggestions to tauni. [+1 from jedp ]
  • ben loves the demo videos, very useful for upper-level management. Sometimes PICL is easier to demo (greenfield, new visible code), maybe signin or more abstract protocol stuff is harder. But give it a try, don't worry about dazzle. warner: try a whiteboard video, see how weird it'd be.
  • Async videos
  • 1 minute updates
  • Freaky Fridays keep the momentum to set aside time
  • ckarlof has contacted interns, is matching them up based on interest
  • didem: marketplace+apps folks had a problem with persona last week, in-app purchases, came up with a quick dirty solution, need help. matt basta? packaged apps, without origins? ben is on it, he suggested the hack (app://guid?)
  • tauni is organizing sessions for workweek: . Hoping for high-level ideas to be written down by end of this week. Please add specifics to the etherpad.
  • please look at the picl/signing collaboration etherpad: , has consequences for signin team

Interns [ckarlof] I've heard back from the interns with their interests/goals for the summer.
