Went PoorlyEdit

Confuses UsEdit

  • What is the Engineering teams velocity?
  • Do we need another engineer?
  • Preload priority
  • FFOS preload and market share
  • Process is in transition and less clear than prior to Agile launch
  • Are the Mobile Web/App (Kenan) & Zero (Dan) syncups helpful and visible?
  • Exact timing on partner reviews (calendar? can we get big players first?)
    • For WAP gateway domain name patterns, support of, other desktop domains, sister projects
  • Analytics in apps, tracking pageviews, esp. preloads
  • Want to get to know Erik more -
  • Third party UX for portal
our solution/proposal to Erik about SMS

Action itemsEdit

  • Dan -- Compare notes with FB on IP whitelisting/partner pushback? Low priority for now
  • Dan - Analytics - make knowledge out of data
  • Dan - Set Image-quality RFC closing/resolution meeting date
  • Carolynne - Ask Oliver if he can measure market share (pageviews) of FFOS? Do it ourselves?
  • Dan - Aircel - what phones connected to WAP gateway, help make decision on support
