For two weeks, I’m embedded with the Web Platform team here at Adobe. What does that mean? It means, I’m acting like I’m part of the team, going to all the scrum meetings, taking a (very small) bit of work off their hands, and trying desperately not to screw anything up.
For those that don’t know, the Web Platform team at Adobe is the group responsible for writing the specs, implementing the code, and shepherding the technologies that make up Adobe’s contributions to the W3C and WebKit. If you’ve seen our work on CSS Regions, CSS Exclusions, CSS Shaders, CSS Compositing, or CSS Transforms then you have seen the fruits of this team’s labor. I’m embedded with a subset of that larger group – the engineers that actually write the code.
I’m going to post some of my first week observations tomorrow or Monday, but I figured I’d put things out to you guys. Is there anything you’d like to know? Any part of the process that you’d like more insight into? Anything that you’d like investigated or answered while I’m here?
And don’t worry, the team might be in your browser rendering your coolness, but I will not be. The work I’m doing is all HTML work that will be run by the browser. So no worries.
