Several issues/comments to clarify for the April and May agendas:
(Apr 13, Ironport)
["Sprint and pair/extreme programming discussion"]
- Aahz, are you moderating this, or if not who is? Can you please list
separate speaker/ moderator names for each agenda item, to avoid a repeat of
March's very confused meeting.
If a topic has no owner, it ain't gonna happen...
["We will also have a discussion about BayPIGgies, its leadership, and
direction for the future."]
- anyone tagged to lead this? Can we please at least take the very divisive
name issue OFF the table until the survey results come back in May, if not
["IDEs for Python"] (but *not GUIs* - Aahz - I only mentioned IDEs but not
GUIs, can you delete GUIs?)
* I threw out the topic of IDEs but to avoid any possible confusion, I am
*not* organizing it.
I simply encouraged other people to volunteer - this would make a great
new-member speaking opportunity. So far we have only 1/2(?) confirmed
volunteers, unless I missed that on the list - can you please identify each
speaker and IDE:
- JJ Behrens/ Vim + ctags
- Marilyn Davis/ (did you volunteer or just express interest?)
- will anyone volunteer to cover IDLE or Scite, Wing, JEdit, Boa
Constructor, Komodo, ASPN, PyDev(Eclipse), plain old emacs etc.? People -
please coordinate with Aahz and each other, not with me.
- I thought we agreed IDEs would get to go first, before the sprint
- each presenter would need a fully charged laptop which can project VGA
(JJ - does Ironport you have a multiplexer (Belkin?) to allow one person to
speak while the
next person connects/disconnects/fiddles with their video card/reboots?)
- Best to arrive early, test the projector, and arrange speaking order among
You might find the Jonathan Ellis IDE reviews I posted a good basis for
feature comparison across IDEs.
(May 11, Google)
I would like to present the 2006 survey results for the first 45 minutes (If
we have no other speakers, I could use the whole 90 minutes up on this, and
I could do extra slides, so please speak up now if you also want to present
separately at May?).
- results, some graphs, top-n topic lists, conclusions and interactive
- draw for prizes from our goodie box (books, tshirts, conference swag,
(I may not have a laptop so if someone can commit to lend me theirs to
I know Dennis Reinhardt also offered to speak on ctypes.
