IATI Community Tech Calls: Tool builders and developers

Thanks for posting your interest @siemvaessen @markbrough and @danmihaila

We’ve set-up a Doodle poll for those interested in joining our first call. There are hourly options between Monday 13 and Friday 23 February - so hopefully we can find a good time for everyone, although if not we will select a time that is convenient to the majority.

+1. Will doodle, and alert @TimDavies @bjwebb & @rory_scott

that’s a big poll btw!

Yeah, as in 90 options huge! Looks like we have a date for 21-02 however. Phew.

@VincentVW mark 21-02 down :alarm_clock:

Thanks to @siemvaessen @stevieflow @VincentVW @leighhmitchell @hayfield @TimDavies for completing the Doodle.

It seems like Tuesday 21 February 2017 at [11:00 GMT / 12:00 CET / 06:00 EST] is the only time that works for all of us who responded, so let’s book this in!

I’ve now closed the Doodle poll, but others are still very welcome to join, do post below so that we don’t forget you from our expected attendee list :slight_smile:

A link (probably google hangouts) will be posted in this thread in the week leading up to the event. If anyone has any thoughts on additions/modifications to the suggested agenda, please do post too!

Looking forward to speaking in just under a couple weeks.

Great idea!
I am happy to join

Hi - me to. I know it’s for developers but I’d like to join if that’s ok as I can help connect people and feedback on issues we’re finding from the standard user perspective where that would be useful.

Thanks to @danmihaila, @rolfkleef, @bjwebb, @andylolz, @tdavis, @Wilbrod and @SJohns for signalling their attendance - will be great to have you all join!

We will be posing the URL to join the call on Monday morning - watch this space…

@SJohns - yes will be great to have you join too and always good to have a user perspective.

Thanks Dale could you add me to the list too please

@siemvaessen, @stevieflow, @VincentVW, @leighhmitchell, @hayfield, @TimDavies, @danmihaila, @rolfkleef, @bjwebb, @andylolz, @tdavis, @Wilbrod, @SJohns and @Matt

Thanks to all those who have signed up ahead of tomorrow’s call (11:00 - 12:00 GMT) - we’re looking forward to speaking! Here’s the link to join: https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/117593413

(Unfortunately we can’t be sure that our Google hangouts account can cope with this overwhelming demand, hence we’re switching to gotomeeting).

Gotomeeting offers a web-based login. Alternatively, you can also dial in using a standard telephone:
United Kingdom: +44 330 221 0086
United States: +1 (312) 757-3126

First GoToMeeting? Try a test session: http://help.citrix.com/getready

in terms of an agenda, could we suggest that we stick with the agenda in the first post (we’ll need to keep introductions brief given our numbers!) and iterate accordingly in future calls.

Looks good, thanks @dalepotter. I will join too. I don’t suppose you have a local number for Bangladesh? Thanks!

Hi @markbrough - great that you can join too. I’m afraid I haven’t been able to find a local dial-in number for Bangladesh.

Am posting the full country list in case any of the below is helpful…

Many thanks to everyone who joined the call this morning - it was very good to speak and hear about the varied projects you are working on.

We have collated our notes from the call to put together the minutes from the meeting. Actions from the call are colour-coded. Thanks to @hayfield and @petyakangalova who diligently noted down the key points from the conversations.

I’ve passed on the additional suggestions raised for TAG sessions (on IATI Datastores and how this group can work together in future) to @JoniHillman for inclusion in the agenda.

Looking forward to continuing discussions at the TAG in a couple weeks, and later in future calls. As mentioned on the call, we’re keen to make future calls as useful as possible to the group, so please do post (or message privately) any feedback or suggestions on the format etc.
