UX meeting format is evolving

50/50 on new ideas and reviewing work in progress

After a couple of weeks of setting up with mostly free-format meetings in IRC we’re going to try a more structured format for our weekly UX meetings:

  • First half hour: people can introduce a problem + proposed (possible) solution
  • Second half hour: we review any work that has progressed over the past week. Often a core committer will be around to provide guidance or even actually commit changes that are good to go.

We did a first ad-hoc version of this last week, including a hangout with screen sharing. It worked really well, was productive and a lot of fun. Seeing the same thing in action is helpful when discussing user interface changes!

Next one is coming up and people from Acromedia will present on a topic and outline their proposed solution. For the second part I’m hoping we can review the “Place block” experimental module patch.

The meeting will take an hour. Here’s a calendar for the date and time.

Want to join? Join the UX channel on drupal.slack.com. Get an automatic invite here. We’ll link a hangout from there and make sure we’re broadcasting live so at least everybody who wants can follow along and use Slack for background chat.

See you there!
