Next week is our first attempt at a completely virtual yt hack week, so we hope you can join in to make it a success!
*The goal of this week is "Managing Mischief"--This is when we want dead code, code styling, and other PRs both submitted and merged. We can take a look at YTEPs that have been waiting for our attention as well!*
This is a pretty open-ended week, with the goal being to push through these refactoring-type PRs. If you want to be involved, but aren't sure where to start, some of the steering committee will be "on-call" throughout the week on slack so you can ask them what people are working on, or who to ask to take a look at the PR you are working on.
We are letting this be self-driven, so if you and someone else are hashing out something and want to zoom, go for it! If slack and github messaging are getting the job done, stick with that! If you want a third mind on a call/github discussion to help out, ask!
*Let's try using the #development channel for most of this discussion on slack. *Post here the PRs you are working on so others can join in! Post here your questions about code style! Post here your frustration that you can't pass that last fido test!
*So you know you are not alone, here is when we will definitely be online thinking yt thoughts. *These are NOT comprehensive (you may get a response very quickly outside of these times!), but you can expect a quick response during these days and times:
Monday (June 7): 12 pm - 2pm UTC: Matt Turk and Britton Smith 6 pm - 8 pm UTC: John ZuHone and Cameron Hummels
Tuesday (June 8): 1 pm - 3 pm UTC: Matt Turk and Britton Smith 6 pm - 8 pm UTC: Matt Turk and John ZuHone
Wednesday (June 9): 2 pm - 4 pm UTC: Britton Smith and John ZuHone
Thursday (June 10): 3 pm - 4 pm UTC: Matt Turk and Britton Smith 4 pm - 5pm UTC: Matt Turk and John ZuHone
Friday (June 11): 2 pm - 3 pm UTC: Matt Turk and John ZuHone 7 pm - 8 pm UTC: Matt Turk and John ZuHone
Can't wait to hack away next week!
