Weekly dev call

Hello @kjetilkjeka @pavel.kirienko @scottdixon - Would there be an opportunity for me to join one of these calls to align on some things NXP is hoping to do?

@iain.galloway by all means. The next call is scheduled on Nov 21 18:00 UTC. We didn’t have one today because we just changed the schedule from Mon 18:00 UTC to Wed 18:00 UTC, the previous call was two days ago on Monday.

:warning: There will be no dev call next week on Dec 26 due to holidays in EU and the US. The next dev call is scheduled on Jan 2.

Is there going to be a call on Jan 23rd? What time and timezone? I am working to get two apps engineers to join to talk about S32K146 support. Alternatively we could have a separate core team meeting.

The dev calls are held every Wednesday at 18:00 UTC, as described in the OP post. The meeting room is at https://appear.in/Zubax. The next call is expected to take place on Jan 23rd as usual.

This is wonderful. We should have at least @scottdixon for coordination with his Libuavcan rewrite effort.

Scott has reported difficulties connecting via appear.in today. If anyone else couldn’t join the call today because of issues with appear.in, please reply here. We might consider abandoning this service in favor of a more robust solution.

It turned out that my camera driver locked up when I tried to connect the first time. My guess is Google Chrome is more to blame then appear.in.

Pavel, great to see that there are dev calls for uavcan. Unfortunately time for Asia/Australia people is really bad. For example me UTC 18.00 + Bangkok 8hrs is 2am. Are there any possibilities to make calls a few hours earlier ?

It is proposed to have the weekly call a few hours earlier. Please indicate what suits you:

(poll cancelled, see below)

Paging @scottdixon @iain.galloway

It’s been pointed out that if we moved the call more than 1.5 hrs earlier we’d overlap with the PX4 Developer Coordination Call. We could possibly move the UAVCAN dev call on a different business day which probably should be neither Monday (a dense day for some) nor Friday (might not work for people in EU/Asia due to late-ish hours involved). Tuesday is undesirable because the PX4 team has the hardware call at 16:00 UTC.

@jani.hirvinen How late is too late?

Here’s a new poll

  • Wed 18:00 UTC (no change)
  • Wed 17:00 UTC (one hour earlier)
  • Thu 18:00 UTC
  • Thu 17:00 UTC
  • Thu 16:00 UTC
  • Thu 15:00 UTC

The time has been changed to Wed 17:00 UTC (one hour earlier).

I am going to be traveling on Wednesday until 17:40 UTC, so won’t be able to attend the call on time. Sorry!

(I am going to hop online once I landed though just to see if there’s anybody there)

Breaking news!

We are moving the call back to the old schedule: Wednesday 18:00 UTC.

The header post will be updated.

I would like to propose a second weekly call scheduled at an earlier time to accommodate our colleagues from the other side of the planet. The proposed time for the additional call is Wed 09:00 UTC. You can evaluate its mapping to other timezones here: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html?iso=20191106T090000&p1=1440&p2=242&p3=166&p4=28&p5=248&p6=57

Would @jani.hirvinen and @tridge be interested in occasional participation? Does the suggested time work well?

thanks for offering a different time. I can’t make it this week but I should be able to make it next week

Noted. I updated the OP post to indicate the second time.

There will be no dev calls on Dec 25 and Jan 1 due to holidays in the EU/US. The next dev call is due on Jan 8.
