LCFG Deployers' Monthly Meetings 2020

The meetings are typically held on the first Thursday of each month, starting at 2.15pm, the location is noted in the title for the month. Notes after the meetings are added in italic to the agenda items. See MonthlyMeetings2019 and MonthlyMeetings2018 for notes from earlier meetings.

3rd December 2020 (Microsoft Teams) - 3pm

Normally at this time of year we would be holding our annual meeting where we review the achievements of the year and look forwards to what developments we would like to see next year. Given we're still doing all this virtually I think we don't want such a long meeting. This year I propose to spend the time reviewing the new Ubuntu platform. This will cover what we've achieved so far and also look at what still remains to be done. If you're using the new platform, or even just testing, it would be really useful to hear how you're all getting on so please come prepared to give a status update.

As it's nearly Christmas make sure to lay in a good supply of mince pies and feel free to appear in festive jumpers or drape yourselves in fairy lights.

5th November 2020 (Microsoft Teams) - 3pm

Recently we've been exceptionally busy with work on adding support for Ubuntu so there is much to catch up on but we'd like to focus this particular meeting on how we can make the meetings more useful in general.

For the LCFG project to continue to be successful and useful for everyone we need to take a co-operative approach with input from all parts of the community. Regularly discussing what we're all working on allows us to identify new opportunities for collaboration and avoid duplication of effort. Please have a think about how we might improve the meeting and make it more useful for everyone.
