I’ve worked closely with @Cassie for many years and think she’d be an invaluable asset to the community! I’d love to work with her on improving the user-friendliness of the Open edX product, as well as making the Community more accessible to non-technical members.
I’ve worked with Cassie for a year now on several different projects, and she would be an awesome addition to the CCs! She’s so talented and pleasant to work with. Her work is top notch and would definitely be an asset. 100% yes!
Cassie has my vote as well. I have worked with her in the context of the Marketing WG and event planning activities. She is committed to driving results and very detailed in her work. She will be a great fit for the CC program!
If I’m understanding this correctly, the portfolio provided for Cassie is UI/UX and Marketing focused, not Product focused. The Product Manager guidelines request that Product CCs provide a portfolio of product related work.
I’m probably missing something here, but it seems like Marketing CC or UI/UX CC would be more appropriate?
@Cassie definitely has my vote for becoming a core contributor! She is always doing outstanding work, and the Open edX project stands to benefit greatly from further involvement from her
@sarina I’ll let @Cassie answer about the role she wants to apply for, but @Cassie note that in any case you can start with a given role, and extend/exchange it later on, if some requirements are missing during the initial application.
@sarina I think it makes most sense to apply as a UX/UI CC. I’d like to keep in the loop of what’s happening in product though - so perhaps joining the Product Working Group calls would make most sense to start with
@Cassie makes sense to me - we’d absolutely love more participation in the Product WG!
For Core Contributor nominations, your previous work should demonstrate that you’ve earned your role in an area (so for example, coding CCs provide links to multiple merged pull requests in their repos of focus to showcase they’re ready for that responsibility). I’d recommend you provide links to concrete examples of your work, so that people (like me!) who haven’t had the opportunity to work with you can familiarize themselves with a sampling of your work so far.
@Cassie It’d be great to have you involved in the Product Working Group! Ali has spoken very highly of you, and I’d be thrilled to become more familiar with your work.
To echo Sarina, your work on the AGPL-licensed theme and the UI/UX work on Modular Learning seems to fit well with the UI/UI and/or Marketing roles. And/but, that certainly doesn’t preclude you from getting more involved in the Product group and expanding into that role in the future!
