What we worked on

  • Engagement Ladder. Quick wins that make it easier for people to climb the ladder. Plus a dashboard for measuring contribution.
  • A contributor metrics service. Prototype for "MakerMind," a new service that listens for contributor activity to feed it into a dashboard, BadgeKit, etc.
  • Web Literacy UX. Prototype user experience for the Web Literacy Map.
  • Content. Fill the Web Literacy Map with our best current content. Make a punchlist of gaps. Prep a pilot for a community content sprint to fill them.
  • "Teach the Web" training. Polished packaging and a schedule for our online course and training.
  • Maker Party. A documented plan for what we're doing this year. Tickets for shipping better events UX.
  • Metrics. Knowledge transfer. Best practises for building metrics into all of our software. Running data analysis, A/B tests, and campaigns. A website metrics dashboard.
  • New markets. A plan for which new locales and communities will webmaker engage with in 2014
  • Localization. Planning and technical strategy for "right-to-left languages."
  • User testing and co-design. Kits that make it easy for community to run user testing events.
  • Code contribution. New approaches for making code contribution easier.
  • Firefox integration. Demos of new approaches for integrating Webmaker within Firefox.
  • Skillshares. Bootcamps and demos. For Front End best practices, MakerStrap, DevOps, working with Bugzilla and Github, how to develop in Webmaker, + more.

Web Literacy UX


  • Mon - Content review. Teaching Kits. User types & paths. Brainstorming.
  • Tues - Refine designs. Wireframes. Begin building.
  • Wed - Continue building prototype. Create image assets.
  • Thurs - Supporting functionality (eg, tagging). Copy.
  • Fri - Final prototype


1) Content Review

  • Consider new approaches for teaching kits. How will badges work into the flow? The objective of this task is to gather all the information / pieces we'll need to be looking at in order to design the "Explore" section.

2) Brainstorm

3) Prototype

4) Refine

  • Post Work Week Priorities (individual tasks that could be done or put off):
    • Make language setting per-user vs. per-site (user setting, per session, ???)
    • UX for MakeAPI for localized searches
    • Localized Emails, especially auto-generated
    • Site banner/CTA to indicate lang/locale is not complete, and links to help translate, etc.
    • Automation to auto-upload translation files to Transifex when something changes in en-US
    • Can we co-ordinate with MDN for details we share with them (e.g., HTML and CSS info in Goggles/Thimble)?
    • Locale file info in healthcheck, to show how recently l10n translations where downloaded
    • Improve L10N Responsiveness of our Tools: we need to audit for things like widths/height. We've fixed in, but missed a lot in our tools.
    • Localization of Teaching Kits and other Makes. We don't have any automated/Transifex way of doing this now.
    • Need to educate people on using Tutorials vs. inline HTML comments in Thimble--this makes localization much easier.
    • Prompt users for locale on publish
    • Display appropriate locales on locale (ie pt-br content on

How to Install and Develop

Pomax shows folks who have not yet committed code to Webmaker how to do that

Front End Roundtable

Webmaker crew + Engagement / Service shop crew share knowledge Session on frontend best practices across MoFo that should include Cassie, Gavin, Kate, Mavis, Sabrina, and possibly Atul, & other interested folks. Space for us to get together to share resources and tackle hurdles would help cement a kickass frontend/UX culture. Will include a report out that shares our process and how others can get frontend stuff accomplished quickly and effectively (e.g., setting up a website, design, code review, etc).
