[tor-project] UX team meeting notes, January 11th

Hello & happy new year!

Thanks to everyone who made it to yesterday’s UX Team meeting – the first one of the year. We’re looking forward to seeing you all again in a week’s time on January 18th.

Here are the minutes from yesterday’s meeting:


Yesterday we discussed our change to a weekly frequency for team meetings, the addition of a weekly planning section to better communicate what we’re working on individually, Joydeep’s monthly status report for December, and our plan to set aside a few hours each month for a team reading morning.

Lastly, we continued the discussion in #tor-ux with a review of the work we did in Q3 2021 on the UX Team Roadmap.
