Title: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: mvBarracuda on September 02, 2009, 03:30:42 PM
Quite some time has been passed since the last developer meeting. I would like to hold another meeting of the entire development team in mid September. Considering that the majority of the active developers reside in North America and Europe having such a meeting at a normal work day seems hard to impossible as a large number of developers will be either at work (NA) or already in bed (Europe).

Therefore I would like to propose to hold a meeting either at Saturday or Sunday. Could you attend a developer meeting at weekend days? I'm currently considering either 12th / 13th or 19th / 20th of September for such a meeting, depending on which date the most developers could attend. If you would be fine with a weekend meeting, I'll create a doodle for it to find the best time.

There are a bunch of topics we should discuss at the meeting, e.g. the next steps in the programming department, the status of the refactoring efforts, license issues in the graphics department etc. I'll compile a list of topics over the course of next days but I depend on the feedback of every department as you know best which topics should be talked about.

I've created an article about the meeting at the wiki:

19th/20th would be better for me, as I don't know if I'll be available for 12th/13th. I'll keep you posted.

Just to make things more difficult ;)

12th/13th would be better.  I'm out of town the weekend of the 19th/20th.

I'm fine with a meetings during weekends. I can't say anything on a real date, i really don't know what I'm going to do .

Personally, the sooner the better IMO.

I'm going mountain biking in Whistler the weekend of the 12th, but time, wife and internet permitting I may still be able to attend :)

there are probably a few times I can make it those weekends.

My son has soccer games ~5:30-7:30 GMT on Saturdays.

I can always IRC from my blackberry though

I'm good for either weekend as far as I can tell at the moment.

I'm planning to go on a jazz festival during 12-13 weekends, so hardly will be available. 19-20th is good for me.

I've created a doodle for the meeting:

Please take the doodle so we can find the best date for the meeting.

I can never on weekends, at least not until we got Internet at home. Which will still take at least another month.


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: mvBarracuda on September 03, 2009, 03:19:15 PM
That's a pity :-/ On the other side I was pretty much expecting that there won't be a date that everyone could attend so we'll simply go for the one that the most developers can. That sounds like the fairest solution to me.


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: tZee on September 03, 2009, 07:22:06 PM
Don't worry about me. Use the date where the most people can attend, of course! :)

Now my circumstances have changed. Suddenly 12/13 has opened up, but I don't know about 19/20.


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: Suzi on September 11, 2009, 07:18:53 PM
Do we have a date yet? 12th is already tomorrow.


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: meinmartini on September 11, 2009, 10:45:13 PM
Good question.

Both weekends have opened up for me, but I don't know how to edit the Doodle.


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: mvBarracuda on September 12, 2009, 01:19:13 PM
AFAIR you can only edit your choices if you've registered yourself at doodle. As I've created this doodle, I can edit your choices meinmartini. Which timeslots would work for you next weekend?

I was short of time lately and I'm not too sure that everyone would show up today. I propose to have the meeting at Saturday, 19th of September 5:30PM GMT.



Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: meinmartini on September 12, 2009, 04:12:41 PM
I'm fully available for both weekends.


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: Sirren on September 12, 2009, 04:14:35 PM
Next Saturday at 5:30 GMT sounds good to me. I can find some spare time for other dates, though.


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: shevegen on September 12, 2009, 04:31:49 PM
So it is next week

sorry I missed the doodle... don't know where my brain was.


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: saritor on September 13, 2009, 01:59:23 AM
I can't edit my votes either, but i should be available for all times on all days.


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: meinmartini on September 13, 2009, 07:46:17 PM
I imagine that it's going to be next weekend, then. We really ought to decide on a date and time so that we can plan schedules accordingly.


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: saritor on September 17, 2009, 02:35:09 PM
Would it be safe to say that there is going to be no meeting for this weekend since it is already a couple (or one depending on your timezone) days off without a confirmation?


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: shevegen on September 17, 2009, 05:48:26 PM
We need mvBarracuda!

Sorry for my recent absence, I still need to finish some important papers for university. The meeting is ON for Saturday, 19th of September, 6:30PM GMT. Hope to see you there. I'll try to prepare something for the meeting at Friday or Saturday morning (local time).

Post by: zenbitz on September 17, 2009, 09:49:57 PM
I might be a little late as my son has a soccer (futbol) match at 5:30 GMT... but they only play 4 6 minute quarters.


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: meinmartini on September 19, 2009, 06:18:52 PM
Some of us are in the IRC room now...very small amount of us. Hope people didn't forget!

Sorry I missed it.

Dont worry, meinmartini was there.

The next day, btw, timong appeared on IRC. And now I see you posting here... 3 audio guys!

Meinmartini was very sad to be the only audio guy on IRC ... he needs a hug possibly ;)


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: meinmartini on September 23, 2009, 07:01:32 AM
I wasn't sad...


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team

Ah, I'd be surprised if you were, really.


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: meinmartini on September 24, 2009, 01:30:49 AM
At one point I had asked if I was the only person representing the Audio team. That's all.

Do you guys think we can have one more meeting in December? Of course December is a time where people usually are busy with reallife, xmas, sylvester coming up, holidays, or in case with barra for university.

Barra said he will be busy for 2 weeks at least, but I am just asking in general here - anyone thinks that within 18 december up to 31 december we could hold one last meeting for the year 2009? I myself would like to talk about the dialogue engine for example (for example, I think we should include the possibility of skill checks within dialogues, and I think this is not possible right now at all, even though we dont have skills for techdemo I, but we will have to extend the options for the dialogue engine, I think, anyway.).


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: zenbitz on December 03, 2009, 05:28:47 AM
I am happy to have a meeting, but maybe we should wait until barra returns.
There is no need to discuss the dialogue/quest engine right now.  It's clear that it needs a redesign... but it's very dependent on other factors.

I'm actually pretty much tied up with tasks for university until Christmas. I wouldn't mind an after Christmas meeting, some time between 27th of December and New Years Eve. This said: I'll be in Berlin for one day at December the 30th, so it's pretty much limited to the 27th, 28th and 29th of December on my side.


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: Sirren on December 03, 2009, 11:05:20 AM
I can't foresee any trouble on my part about a meeting on 27th/29th. Count me in.


Title: Re: Meeting of the entire development team
Post by: zenbitz on December 03, 2009, 09:12:32 PM
All those days are good for me, I am off work.  The sooner we decide the better, though.
