Media sprint @ NYC camp

Media on Drupal Groups Media Initiatives - Tue, 05/19/2015 - 06:35
Start: 
2015-07-13 09:00 - 2015-07-19 17:00 America/New_York
Sprint
Organizers: 

The Drupal media sprint is aimed at improving the media management contrib solutions for Drupal 8, and ideally laying the tracks for same to eventually be incorporated into Drupal core (perhaps for Drupal 8.1 or 9). Effort will involve coding and development aimed at implementing the roadmap that we created in 2014 for media in Drupal 8. The team will be sprinting in honor and memory of Aaron Winborn.

This sprint will be bringing together some of the brightest minds and leading contributors to media in Drupal, hopefully including including much of the Drupal Media initiative team. This sprint is part of a long term multi-year NYC initiative where we are trying to build momentum around improving media handling in Drupal. As such, we'll be working to build momentum on the sprints that we held at NYC Camp in 2014, as well as follow-up events at DrupalCon Austin, DrupalCon Amsterdam, and BADCamp.

The team will also be sprinting in honor and memory of Aaron Winborn who recently passed away after a brave fight against ALS, and we will be continuing to work on making Media handling in Drupal 8 a better experience that was aligned with his vision for what's possible in Drupal.

Registration on NYC Camp webpage is desired for all attendees.

No weekly scrum this week / Feedback on future times and Hangouts vs IRC

Media on Drupal Groups Media Initiatives - Tue, 07/29/2014 - 10:06

I forgot to get everything set up last week in advance, so given the short notice, I'm going to skip this week's weekly scrum. I'm sure a fair amount of us will still be in IRC and I'm looking forward to hearing a summary from the Zurich sprint!

Alternate time poll

We are looking to change up our Drupal Media Team's weekly scrum into an alternate time every other week to help increase participation from those interested! If you are unable to usually make the current scrum time (3:30 PM UTC / 10:30 AM US Central time), please let us know (on http://doodle.com/i7sn8rx8vi39chdr) the times that generally work for you every week so we can make an informed choice for increased participation!

Ignore the specific dates here, think of this in terms of your usual schedule during the week and when you'd normally be free. Please select as many open times as you can so we can find the best common ground.some

Again, if you are interested in participating in the Media team weekly scrums, please fill out http://doodle.com/i7sn8rx8vi39chdr.

Hangouts on Air vs IRC for meetings

I'd like to get some quick feedback if we should continue using Hangouts on Air for our weekly scrum meetings. On the one hand, it is nice to see faces, but I worry that by using a very publicly format, we may be limiting contributors or participants.

Like most of the other major Drupal core initiatives, I'm considering moving our scrum to IRC only, and maybe having the core Media team itself having private hangouts for any internal discussion during the IRC meeting.

Please comment here with what you think!

Drupal 8 Media Sprint

Sprint
Organizers: 

Every few weeks we sprint for a new Drupal 8 Contrib topic and open our doors for everyone to join us.

It's time to have a look at Media (and related modules) and make it awesome! We want to do it right this time, agree?

We will deep dive into the topic and prepare the sprint next week already by investigating the status, provide some overview and outline concrete achievable goals.

Pack your bags and don't forget to sign up here:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AgCtfWUVptykdDlKT2o0X2dNbWR...

Everyone is welcome; if you have built a site in Drupal, you can contribute. We will split into pairs and work on D8 Media issues. Bring your laptop. If possible, install git before coming and git clone Drupal 8 core. For new folks: you can get a head start also by making an account on Drupal.org and taking a look at the Drupal Ladder http://drupalladder.org/

MD Systems will sponsor snacks and Drinks throughout the sprint. Further sponsoring would be awesome. How about a grill dinner again?

Looking forward to seeing you in Zurich.
