      • 28 Sept, Thiruvananthapuram
    • Should we continue with monthly sprints?
  • Mozilla Summit, October 3-5. There will be MDN staff at all three locations, so if you are attending, please be sure to connect!


  • Template updates
    • We did a regeneration of all pages last week to ensure that all templates were up-to-date site-wide. This took about 18 hours, so we expect to do it periodically going forward
    • Work continues both to modernize and improve template functionality, but also to update the way things look for the MDN redesign
  • MDN user/editor docs work continues
    • Getting closer to having the new versions done!
  • APIs
    • Goes well! But huge amount of work to do
  • We probably will need some help with tagging articles in the next 2-3 weeks!
    • Info will come on dev-mdc asap!


  • You've heard this before, but the Trello system for tracking our work should deploy by next week. There's now some... encouragement... from management to have this done. :)
  • dev-mdc is the place to learn about the day to day work and to ask question, get information, give feedback, ...

MDN Site

  • For those interested in the impending redesign of MDN, there will be a meeting to discuss the proposed mockups & First Draft of new homepage design on Friday, at 13:00 UTC, in #devmo
  • Redesign is now available on the production server, behind an admin setting per-user.
  • Still under heavy development, but it's now usable.
  • Iterating with the dev team to update and improve things, and stuff not yet implemented at all is coming soon!
  • The team is rocking it big time; special kudos to the designers (habber and mart3ll especially) and the dev team (most of the credit here goes to davidwalsh).
  • If you'd like to beta-test the redesign, please talk to an MDN admin (sheppy, teoli, jms, wbamberg, or chrismills) or to one of the MDN developers (especially groovecoder or davidwalsh).
