We had a quick July monthly call yesterday and I know many people are
vacationing and traveling so, here is a quick summary of what happened:
New Staff Introductions (Toronto)
Justin Obara: Justin is working on Q&A in general and on our releases
(perhaps also lending a hand with user testing). He's familiar to
many of us because he has been a volunteer for Fluid and the project
has already benefitted from his thoroughness and careful attention.
Jacob Farber: We're excited to have Jacob here to help out with some
of our development work. He's brings with him an expertise in CSS and
HTML, adding to our skill base. We're jazzed to have Jacob aboard.
I talked a little about the many presentations that FLUID folks gave
and the questions we heard from the audience. It seems our work on
the wiki and our efforts to further clarify what Fluid is are paying
off and people are interested anew in getting engaged. We have plenty
of further work to do in the area of simple clarification, but we've
made great strides. The FLUID presentations reflected the changing
face of work the group is producing, showcasing a few beta components
and showing with tech demos what's inside a component and just what
they do. It was an exciting week that has left us re-energized.
Framework work coming soon
Colin is taking a much-needed vacation and upon his return he'll start
in on the Framework http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/
Framework that will be particularly timely and will help inform the
work that he's doing in collaboration with Clayton Lewis on
Transformable slated for 0.6.
Incidentally, the work that Daphne and I are doing now to clarify and
tighten the design processes will also prove a point of convergence
with Clayton as we collaborate on moving through our how-to-build-a-
Component workflow. It's a work in progress, so we continue to
tighten and refine how we iteratively work through component design
and development, but we are making great progress. We're thinking of
ways to show the progress we're making on components so folks can a)
get a clearer sense of our process (both design and development and
overlap therein) and b) see how cooked the components are. We've been
doing a lot of process change work including working to get monthly
releases out. The team has been amazingly flexible and productive.
I imagine we'll "iterate" on a number of these items for the August
Teleconference. So, make the date and come join us:
August 6th, 4p BST, 11a EDT, 8a PDT.
