Appoint a convener

    1. Rotate the responsibility every quarter
    2. Mike Gorrell has volunteered
    3. Setup a space on the Wiki, conf. #

Prioritize key deliverables and agree delivery milestones

    1. Definition of what constitutes the FOLIO Platform vs Core Apps vs FOLIO Apps - on an ongoing basis (owner: Jakub/lead + VInce)
      1. Definition and current list
      2. Where will they live?  → wiki
    2. Establish infrastructure and define RFC process (use Stripes as an ‘inspiration’) -- Vince/lead + Jakub
    3. Definition of Done (include multiple stakeholders) (owner MARK V)
      1. May need to pull in additional people from other teams
    4. On-boarding documentation for developers, testers and others (Zak)
      1. Include back-end pieces
    5. Process for engaging TC (MDG)

Establish a backlog of technical decisions to be made, e.g. Workflow engine.

  • E.g., tech decisions queuing up:WFE: build vs “buy”(from Tod) MarcCat integration
    • Concerns about keeping redundant stores of MARC records in sync (MarcCat and FOLIO will have redundant stores of MARC records)
    • Related to a discussion about microservices and for eventual consistency of data.
