Regular matplotlib meetings

As I had considered doing a while ago, I think it might be beneficial to start having regular Google Hangouts for matplotlib. I'm thinking monthly is probably adequate for now while we experiment with the format.

As you may know, Google Hangouts has a maximum number of 10 participants, but an unlimited number of people may watch both live and from the archive. I believe also (correct me if I'm wrong) there is no such limit on the people who can participate by text chat.

I've created a "Doodle" poll [1] to help find a time during the week that would be best for most.

I figure many of these meetings will include a "core" group of people with "special guests" for various specific topics as they arise. Anyone can fill out the poll, but please send me an e-mail off list if you plan to attend on a regular basis rather than just drop in when possible so I can prioritize things. Once we've determined a good time of the week for everyone, I'll schedule the next 6 or so months on the matplotlib Google calendar [2].

hi

Is there a date?
I just want to checkout the meeting (spy?) but I need to know in
advance to ask the IT department to open the fw for me.

Thanks
Federico

Y yo que culpa tengo de que ellas se crean todo lo que yo les digo?

Great! I just wanted to say that for us (ipython), that has worked really well.

Our workflow is:

1. G+ hangout, with an invite list of ~ 15 (the limit), and we're
always happy to offer an invite to anyone who wants to speak.

2. As soon as we start, we post the public link on g+, twitter and our hackpad.

3. We take running notes on a shared, public hackpad session that
serves as our 'minutes' document:

https://hackpad.com/IPython-dev-meetings-6wTSjJt7TZK

4. A summary of prior meetings and logistics info is kept here:

https://github.com/ipython/ipython/wiki/Dev:-Lab-meetings-on-Air

Very simple, lightweight and surprisingly effective at giving the core
team a high-bandwidth channel for in-depth discussions while
maintaining the openness we want to engage the broader community.

Cheers,

f

Oops, and I missed the last point: we monitor our public chat room on hipchat:

http://www.hipchat.com/ghtNzvmfC

where anyone can post questions, follow ups, etc, that they don't want
to record persistently on hackpad in the minutes.

I think the poll is in, and it looks like the best time for us to meet is Thursdays, 14:00 - 16:00 UTC.

Given some other commitments, I can't make it until October 24. Does that work? I've tentatively added it to the matplotlib calendar.
