Design team update March 6th

On Wednesday the team met at the usual time of 19:00 UTC. Tuesday saw triage run also in #design. The week before saw 2 triages and a weekly meeting.

This coming week will see both triage sessions trying something a little different. Each will have a ‘live’ zoom link, also recorded for viewing later. The idea is that they will be teaching sessions so others can learn how to run triages.
