One of my Q3 goals was to migrate the Legacy Test Pilot users into our new Test Pilot program (some background on the two programs). The previous program was similar in that people could give feedback on experiments, but different enough that we didn’t feel comfortable simply moving the users to the new program without some kind of notification and opting-in.
The Test Pilot 2016 Q4 OKRs are published. Primarily we’ll be focused on continued growth of users (our overall 2016 goal). We deprioritized localization last quarter and over-rotated on publishing experiments by launching four when we were only aiming for one. This quarter we’ll turn that knob back down (we’re aiming for two new experiments) and get localization done.
We originally built Test Pilot on top of Django and some JS libraries to fulfill our product requirements as well as keep us flexible enough to evolve quickly since we were a brand new site.
For the third quarter of 2016 the Test Pilot team decided to try using the OKR method (an OKR overview) for our goal setting.
The Test Pilot team has been heads-down for months working on three new experiments for Firefox and you can get them all today!
