Jim GreeneQuestion

What is your current position at the Church and what are your responsibilities?


I am the product manager over the FamilySearch Research Wiki and the Family History Library as well as the new FamilySearch’s interface with Membership and Statistical Records. This involves gathering user requirements, writing user stories for engineers, and prioritizing stories.


What is one of the exciting projects that you are currently working on?


FamilySearch Research Wiki. We believe that by involving the worldwide community of family historians in a collaborative effort, we can create an encyclopedia of unparalleled record sources that will greatly assist the work of redeeming the dead. More people will easily find records with data about their ancestors, resulting in more saving ordinances.

New Gospel Library for Windows Phone is Released! PDF Print E-mail

Windows users have reason to celebrate a new release for Gospel Library (GLW) for their phones. The new release is much like the tablet version, with a full complement of rich content and enviable features on par or better than peer-apps for the iOS and Android platforms.

Developers for this all-volunteer project have come closer than ever to a universal app for Windows on a phone. The mobile form-factor has the expected features desktop users have come to enjoy and a few more besides. Version is now available in the Windows store, and reviews are for the most part very positive.

If your Windows phone is preconfigured to auto-update, the next time you open your GLW phone app, you’ll experience a brand new interface, one that will be familiar yet enticingly fresh and appealing. If you have been using the beta version, the new Windows release can be downloaded and co-exist on the same device.

It’s happening! Plans and preparation are coming to fruition for the 2015 LDSTech Conference on October 15. It’s not too late to make your own plans to attend. The 2015 schedule is set and the day-long conference will be held at the Institute of Religion Building on the University of Utah campus in Salt Lake City, USA. It is free and everyone is invited regardless of technological skill level.

Last year’s conference had 500 attendees and survey evaluations from 2014 said repeatedly, “First time attendee…have enjoyed learning and look forward to more,” or “This is my first time, but not my last,” or “Thank you, plan to come again.” The presenters for 2015 are as diverse and the topics as relevant for this year’s attendees, and a formidable number of LDS Apps and Games are “in the works.”

If this is your first opportunity to participate, you’ll not want to pass up a chance to brush shoulders with technology experts, network with like-minded tech enthusiasts, and enjoy free breakfast and lunch while making new friends and learning new skills to take back home and share with friends and family.

Don’t wait another day to register. The 2015 LDSTech Conference will be something to remember!
