Subject Propose weekly "Technical Exchange" video meeting for OpenWhisk
Date Wed, 07 Jun 2017 15:08:26 GMT
Hi Whiskers!

Having attended all the amazing and inspiring sessions at ApacheCon a few 
weeks ago and wanting to enable our growing community with better ways to 
foster technical interchange, I would like to propose we work towards 
having weekly 

Here are my thoughts on such a meeting… 

- 1 hour meeting, with agenda to be solicited from community in advance 
- pool of volunteer “moderators” to facilitate the call and cover the 
agenda topics 
- Use video/presentation sharing application with world-wide access such 
as Zoom 
- Alternate meeting times morning / evening (~12 hour differential ) 
allowing world-wide (geo.) participation 
- Post recordings of meetings and link from website (with agenda) for 
offline access (and for new contributor education) 
- Cultivate agenda topics on our Confluence Wiki and confirm a few days in 

Topics would range from… 

- Educational: “how does this component work?”, “how to debug this?”, etc. 

- Feature / idea discussion:  **non-binding** discussion of anyone’s ideas 
to make any part of the project code “better”, more “pluggable” or 
integrateable, etc. 
    + of course, we would want to move/capture such discussions to “dev” 
list (binding) and share/develop designs on our Confluence Wiki, as well 
as move to GitHub epics/issues once consensus is reached 
- Serverless Community: Share experiences on Serverless (conferences, 
meetups, etc.) and what is going on in the Serverless space to raise 
- Social: Just get to know each other (and perhaps associate voices and 
faces with people we are working with) 
- Connecting: Greet new people and hear their interest and help them 
connect with others. 
- Volunteers: identify key code work areas where we need help and seek 

Before we event start we would need to… 

- Have an initial pool of volunteer moderators (of course I would 
volunteer to be one and help jump start the processes) 
- Develop a list of agenda topics here on mailing lists and CWIKI that is 
large enough to start the first meeting and have enough topics to keep it 

Please provide feedback on this proposal as I would welcome any support 
and ideas that could make this better if we agree this is a good idea.
