Team Content Meeting
Online 2022-02-19 17:00 - 18:00 CET
As decided in the 2022-02-05 meeting
- Any other topics?
- I can't make this meeting:
Team size and health
Jeroen has left the team. Welcome to new team member Viola.
"The future is eventually consistent." Walter writes a blog about it.[Walter]
Status of submissions
X submissions of which Y still unconfirmed.
Unconfirmed live stats: https://conference.mch2022.org/orga/event/mch2021-2020/submissions/?q=&tags=3
For this meeting we already review/rate the submissions which require a Visa or funding. [All]
Current proposals (rather than speakers) are not diverse enough.
When can we already start announcing speakers?
Pretalx is able to output the schedule in an XML based format and has an HTML output as well and we have a few options:
Schedule as HTML on our website
Pretalx by default is able to output the schedule as HTML and there is a preview here: https://docs.pretalx.org/user/event/widget.html#example The schedule is responsive so that it looks good on various screen sizes and devices. We can further customize the output to match the MCH2022 color scheme and fonts.
EventFahrplan for Android
EventFahrplan is an open source Android app that shows the schedule of CCC events and can basically be used for everything that is organized using Pretalx/Frab. It's easy to customize the app for a new event. In a nutshell, the source of the schedule is set and the layout including the colours and icons is changed. There is a corresponding guide here: https://github.com/EventFahrplan/EventFahrplan/blob/master/docs/CUSTOMIZING.md
As long as the icons are readily available, it should be possible to do this within 1-2 days with most of the time probably going to registering the app in various app stores.
Using Giggity for Android
Giggity is an open sourch app for CCC events. Instead of having to customize and publish it, it's a single app let's the user import schedules of conferences. We basically just need to publish the schedule and then tell users to install the app and point it to a specific URL
Currently, there is no native open source app for the schedule on iOS we are aware of.
Feedback for the schedule
We may have something that collects feedback from the audience before we release the main schedule that helps us to avoid similar events in parallel and allows us to pick a stage based on the popularity of the event. Erik is working on this.
One option might be https://github.com/pretalx/pretalx-public-voting
Are we up to date
Team Sysadmin was asked to upgrade to 2.3.1, which will bring mostly minor improvements.
Bridge to Zammad
For speaker expenses, we know what will be build and when it will be ready as we are near the end of the CfP? [Erik]
Will be taken care of at the begin of March (when we need it).
Specific speakers we would like to invite
Think about possible speakers to invite and prepare for next meeting (HYPE) [all] Contact your speakers from the list [all]
THE LIST will be pointed to via: https://support.mch2021.org/#knowledge_base/1/locale/en-us/answer/7
Provide a declaration form for speakers
general form teams: https://wiki.mch2022.org/Finance_procedures
Will design input for speakers [Kirils]
Kirils send an email to team Finance, got reply with feedback. Will rework the form. [Kirils] Send to the new treasurer [Kirils]
New blog posts?
We need to blog the next blog blog. [Walter, Nicolas]
Idea: I presented at MCH 2022' hex stickers
Added to our budget.
We are working on a new design. [Hugh] Design needs to be in line with general design. https://mch2022.org/design/
Email send to Team:Volunteers and Team:Huisstijl [Hugh]
Waiting for updated design [Hugh]
Who is responsible for the tables/chairs/power cords/projectors/lighting/... in workshop tents?
No answer from Team:Terrain yet, though some stuff we need to order ourselves, apparently
Walter will take it up with Produktiehuis [Walter]
Tents need to be dark enough and/or projectors good enough so they are usable.
Any Other Business
