- Team Presentations (Matt,Tomcat) - * QA will be way more active on Events with Marcia and Tomcat as the leads. For Events it would make sense to have a basic set of slides that we can use for this Events. So i (Tomcat) talked with Matt and we think a cool team-idea would be to have 1 (one) slide from each team that we could use for this basic slide set. So its to every team to compact all the great information you have about your team to fit it into one awesome slide :)
