Since the WebThings project has flown the nest from Mozilla and is now operating under a new open governance system, one of the ways we would like to invite more direct community involvement is through monthly public meetings.
The purpose of these meetings is to discuss the direction of the project, review the progress we’ve made over the last month, plan the next sprint/release and discuss other topics such as events and evangelism.
The current plan is that the meetings will take place at 18:00 GMT/19:00 CET/10:00 PST on the last Thursday of the month. That makes the first meeting on 2021-01-28T18:00:00Z, just under two weeks from now. You can keep up to date with the meeting times by subscribing to a public calendar (iCal), which also includes the Google Meet link to join the meeting.
This meeting time was chosen to be a reasonable hour for the US and Europe where most of our current contributors are, and the date was chosen to be a good time for a retrospective/planning meeting at the end of each month. The date and time are subject to change if we find that doesn’t work well for people, so let us know if that’s the case for you.
You are cordially invited to join us for the first public meeting, in which we hope to have time for you to:
- Introduce yourself (if you would like to)
- Tell us what it is you’d like to see from the WebThings project
- How you would like to contribute.
This meeting will not be recorded, but we will keep meeting notes so that if you are not able to attend you can read about what was discussed. You can also use the #iot channel on chat.mozilla.org for text-based chat during the meetings and be sure to familiarise yourself with of our code of conduct.
Hope to see you there!
