Community Tech Call #2 - August 29th 1300 UTC / 1400 UK time

(Mark Brough) #1

Hello everyone,

Thanks to those who participated in the inaugural community tech call last month. There were presentations from @markbrough and @Wendy and some really great discussion. We decided to iterate on the process a bit, to ensure that we’re focusing on work that is in progress (rather than future plans) because we already had quite a lot to talk about.

As a reminder: these monthly (or so) community calls are an opportunity to present and discuss what we’re up to. We had these a couple of years ago and they were great. The idea of the call is to be practical and showcase and encourage all of the things that are going on in the community.

If you’d like to attend, please use the poll below to vote for when you can make it (hopefully it should be displayed in your local time zone - hover over each option to see a selection of timezones).

If you want to present anything, please add yourself to the agenda here. We’ll announce a link to join the call closer to the time.

Thanks everyone for voting! There were two joint winning times above. Unfortunately I just found out that I would have to miss the last part of one of the times (sorry, I am travelling) which means that the winning time, with apologies to @siemvaessen, is now (next Thursday):

sorry I was not able to join the call last Thursday, the flu took me over that day :-[

Hopefully to be in at #3 sometime soon.

Just listened to that youtube podcast, which was nice. Would be good to have others next to @markbrough and @andylolz talk as well :rofl:
