  • Various small bug fixes and anomolies
  • Started work on implementing UI redesign (home, about us, contact us, etc.)
2. Updates from AV
  • All MVP features have been delivered
  • Proposed "production" plan:
    • Phase 1 - trial run (3 months)
      • Stay on "free" platforms (cloud services)
      • Assess requirements for "phase 2" production
      • Finalize options for production hosting (costs, trade-offs, etc.)
      • Determine changes to app required to provide better value to org.
      • Implement changes as capacity allows (best efforts)
      • No commitment from MET|PLUS for phase 2 is required for this phase
    • Phase 2
      • Move to production platforms
      • Begin charging for platforms and AV support (see below)
      • Continue with development efforts (best efforts)
3. Questions for the client
  • Project budgetary cost for production
    • Projected costs of up to $200 / month
      • More be less - depends on mix of platforms
      • Includes Agile Ventures managing platform vendors, billing and production support
    • Will firm up costs (and possible options) during phase 1
    • Is this cost viable for MET|PLUS ??
  • Projected use of app - phase 1 and phase 2
    • How many internal (agency) users?
    • How many job seekers?
    • Will clients (employers) be asked to use app as well?
    • Do we need documentation on how to use? (determined during phase 1)
  • Configuring and training the job/résumé "cruncher"
    • Start with one job category
      • Need 5 or more job descriptions within that category
      • Need 10 or more résumés that will match against that category
    • We need to "feed" this data to the cruncher and determine accuracy of matching
    • Once this process is refined and cruncher requirements better understood, we need to expand to additional job categories
    • We need a target list of job categories to be ready to do by phase 2
4. Questions from the client

5. Priorities for next sprint ( sprint 34, started Monday, 01/10/17 )
  • Received data (job descriptions and résumés) for initial job category
  • Train cruncher on that job category, refine process and get more data as needed
  • Continue to refine app, fix outstanding bugs
  • Continue with UI redesign

6. Schedule next client meeting for Monday01/23/2017 at 12.30 pm EST

7. Action points from this meeting - Chet
  • Review capability to sustain app cost in phase 2 (no decision needed until later in phase 1, but if not at all viable we need to reconsider)
  • Provide job descriptions and résumés for initial job category
