Preparation for Second Meeting

  1. Please take some time to review the values listed at [private]. This Google Doc is viewable and editable. We would like everyone to take a stab at editing and/or adding to the document. Some tasks you can focus on:

    • Refine an existing definition of a value
    • If you believe two values overlap, combine them and rewrite the definition to reflect this.
    • Add a new value (one we discussed or a new one) and provide a new definition.
  1. Revisit the values you came up with for the first meeting. Based on the conversations we had, would you change anything about your list?

  2. Fill out the Google Poll (link provided during meeting) with information about your specific technology experience.
