Weekly design meeting notes of Wednesday October 17, 2018

The full transcript of our meeting this week can be found on our Slack channel.

Change of meeting times and format

After a quick round of checking how everyone’s doing, @karmatosed suggests a change of the weekly meeting times and also adding another more inclusive time meeting.

New meeting times will be:

  • Monday: Triage: 16:30 UTC, won’t change.
  • Wednesday: Team meeting: 18:00 UTC meeting time change.
  • Thursday: Open hours 12:00 UTC to fit more countries.

Monday ticket triage will also start including focus projects, instead of working on the oldest tickets available. This includes releases.

For Wednesday meetings, Tammie suggests that focus and leads of specific components or areas get time to start giving updates on what’s going on.

Later on in the meeting, we circled back a bit to this topic because of daylight saving times. We change to the times mentioned here as per the 24th of October and adjust to daylight saving time (DST) in the weeks following.

The new meeting times will be added to the calendar, our Slack channel and the design blog page (P2) on make.wordpress.org. We’ll also post them on our blog in a separate post for better visibility.

Japanese design team meeting

Following WordCamp Tokyo, the Japanese design team actively discusses what’s going on in WordPress design and with the help of translators, they follow up and work on stuff that’s mentioned in the International meetings.

Their findings are usually posted as a comment on the weekly design notes, but it would be nice to create better visibility, probably by turning these comments into separate blogs. Their meeting notes can be found as a comment on the latest international meeting notes.

Calls for design

A quick round of checking on the calls for design that are being worked on. No updates here, which is totally fine. But if people need help on stuff they’re working on, please reach out.

Open floor

What are people working on? Anything inspiration wise to share?

Joshua Wold’s sketch on WP5 user flows

There’s a quick update from the training team regarding learn.wordpress.org. They’ll have updated wireframes ready after the next meeting.

Before we finally close the meeting, Tammie thanks @mizejewski for her work as a team rep, as she’s stepping down for a little while. However, she won’t leave the design team fully and will be back contributing as soon as she can.

Thanks to everyone attending the meeting. If you have anything to add, please feel free to post in our Slack channel or in the comments below.
