Subject Re: Propose BI-WEEKLY "Technical Exchange" Zoom meeting for OpenWhisk staring next Wed. 19th
Date Wed, 12 Jul 2017 21:48:48 GMT
After delays for various reasons, I would very much like to propose we 
"kick off" the "Tech. Interchange" calls starting next Wednesday at 11am 
US EDT (am open to 10am US EDT if the PDT people have no problem) next 
week July 19th. Using Zoom as the meeting app. which allows us to see each 
other, share materials and of course record for playbacks from our YouTube 
channel.  See all the proposed details from earlier post below...

The call I propose would be Bi-Weekly (not weekly) to begin with (see if 
we need more/less over time and add other times for other geos. as we are 
able to add volunteer moderators).

For the first agenda it would be nice to have introductions and propose 
the following general agenda format/template with attendees offering 
updates/topic discussion in the following areas:

- main/core OpenWhisk 
- Kube/Mesos/Compose (Deployment) 
- API Gateway 
- Catalog/Packages/Samples
- Tooling/Utils 
- prepared agenda topics (solicited and encouraged from the "dev" list 
primarily) 
* including education topics we would like to propose. e.g., Request trace 
through system, debugging/logs, etc.
- "at large" / open topics submitted on "dev" list or observe on Slack, 
etc.

My plan would be to post the bi-weekly agenda by EOD Monday of the same 
week on the "dev" list and use Slack as secondary posting mechanism and 
provide reminders on Slack as well before meeting starts.

Everyone would be invited to speak up if they are working on an 
interesting topic in any area. I am also hoping to encourage 
education/discussion agenda topics (e.g., on debugging, logging, testing, 
feature change demos, etc.).

Of course, I will record, post video to OW YouTube channel and upload 
notes (attendance topics) to our OW CWIKI.

The Zoom info would be as follows: 

Topic: Apache OpenWhisk "Tech. Interchange" (bi-weekly) Zoom Meeting

    International numbers available:

I would moderate the first call and ask Jeremias/Carlos/Rodric/Dragos/etc. 
or any other PPMC member to share in moderating future bi-weekly calls.

Kind regards,
Matt

Subject:        Propose weekly "Technical Exchange" video meeting for 
OpenWhisk


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 
advance 


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 
awareness 
- 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 
volunteers.


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 
going
  

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. 


Cheers! 
Matt
