JUX Sprint Cycle

Strategy is to implement a 4 week cycle for producing UX deliverables for the community. We feel this approach will work best for a number of reasons. Exact details are still being worked out.

First and foremost, our goal is to improve the usability of Joomla. A short repeating production cycle will allow us to make immediate short term contributions and remain flexible within the community while developing a long term vision.

Our challenges are time and volunteer resources. The JUX production schedule will always take that into consideration. Consistant marketing aimed at encouraging community involvement and volunteer efforts with the JUX is an important part of our strategy.

Next Meeting:

We will address progress and move forward with a production cycle. March will be a big month for our efforts and we will begin collecting feedback from the community to shape our first goals. The JUX is looking forward to making a positive difference in the community.
