Changes to Platform Engineering meeting

Chris Peterson-12
I think the Platform Engineering meeting has run its course. As the
Platform and product teams have grown and spread around the world,
hosting a real-time meeting makes less sense.

A good meeting should either gather information or distribute it. The
Platform Engineering meeting was not doing a good job of either. It was
too big to be interactive; many viewers couldn't interact anyways
because they were watching Air Mozilla; many of the team updates were
read-only so people who attended the meeting had to read the wiki
anyways to get the full update.

I would like to cancel the Platform Engineering meeting and replace it a
Platform "newsletter" every two weeks. The "newsletter" content would be
similar to the current wiki format but I (or someone else) would
collect, combine, and distribute the team updates through wiki, blog
post, and a dev-planning post. I have discussed this proposal and others
with jst, dougt, and lmandel and they agree it's worth trying.

dougt suggested the Platform team have a team meeting synchronized with
every six-week release cycle to demo new features and revisit on the
organization's high-level priorities. That will take more work, so stay
tuned.

So in the free time that has opened in your Tuesday calendar, why not
take a trip through Platform Engineering meeting history to see how far
we've come? :)

thanks,

FWIW I think this makes a lot of sense, particularly posting it to the mailing list so that we have more of a "single firehose of information" than having to monitor the wiki or blogs individually. Thank you!

I know this change will be a huge benefit for the MSN writing team, too.

Obviously my reference to the "MSN writing team" was a delightful autocorrect of "MDN writing team." It's funny. After a fashion. :)

I was wondering if we should send you some AOL CDs.
