First "developer conference call": Sunday, 3AM UTC time

Hi ya’ll,

We have a pretty friendly/active group of users/testers/docwriters/developers now (yay!). Any interest in having a one hour (or less) conference call to discuss issues/interests/next-steps? (This idea arose out of a conversation with @zebus).

I’m thinking something a little over a week from now? (i.e. Sunday noon asia time, Saturday evening 10PM California time. Anyone in Europe? if so, it might be tricky for us to find a good timezone for all three most likely regions) Is this time or date especially bad for anyone (if so, can you propose alternatives?)

Anyone from this forum would be welcome and I’d work to keep us on topic and manage time. Would someone else be willing to take some basic notes so they can be posted later?

Proposed agenda (changes?):

  • (very) brief introductions/background
  • I’d give a brief history of the project and my (personal, other devs might have other things they want to do) goals for the next few weeks and months
  • Each other developer say what stuff they want to work on
  • Open discussion on any general issues or ideas (if any one thing becomes long we’ll probably need to move that topic to online chat/documents/issues later)

Actually - next Friday 10PM california time / Saturday noon Taiwan time might be better because I might be able to get TTGO to join the call if we do it then… I’ll ask them…

Okay: Let’s set the day/time. I think I just did this conversion correctly. In various timezones it would be:

  • Saturday, 8PM US Pacific time (I slid things forward so that the east US coast wouldn’t be too late)
  • Saturday, 11PM US Eastern time
  • Sunday, 11AM Taiwan time :wink:
  • Sunday, 3AM UTC time

Cool? Anyone happen to have a corp zoom account we can use? Otherwise I can look into skype/google-chat/etc for a group voice chat.

I might be able to do Microsoft Teams for everyone

Will you share a list of topics covered for whose unable to attend (4AM UK)? I have one thought re BT pairing - I don’t always need a high level of protection - a 4 digit code that I can set and confirm from my phone would be okay. Just as an additional option. Hope the call goes well.

Would love to join, hear your voices and learn more about yalls backgrounds, but too late for my timezone. Have fun!

I can send out a zoom for this. I can do this tonight (it’s 8am now)

Can we record the zoom as well for those of us that can’t make or don’t catch the whole meeting?

yay! I like zoom but I’m too cheap to pay for it ;-). Let’s all use that.

And here’s a calendar entry for those that use gcal:

I don’t like paying for it either but needed it for something earlier in the week. It just worked out this time.

… if anyone wants to dial in a few minutes early to do a mic and video check, I’ll open the zoom about 5 minutes before the actual.
