January 11, Developer bi-weekly videoconference

Dear GROMACS developers,

Next week, the Stockholm team is having a Christmas party, so therefore we will postpone the next meeting to after the holidays!

Thus, our next developer teleconference will be on January 11th, 17:00 Stockholm time.

So far, the agenda is:

  • Berk Hess: general issues (open bugs, CI, maintenance)
  • Eric Irrgang: retrospective of 5 years of gmxapi development
  • Open slot
  • Open slot

If there’s anything you wish to discuss, just let me or Berk know, or comment below and we’ll add you to one of the open slots!

Happy holidays!! We’re looking forward to seeing you again in 2023!

I did a sort of informal review of gmxapi status a few weeks ago. Are you thinking I should just expand on that?

Alessandra had mentioned I might give some sort of retrospective or perspective after 5 years of contributing code.

I’m happy to do either, but these would be slightly unusual topics compared to other recent meetings, so please let me know here or privately if anyone has feedback on what you’d actually like to hear from me (if anything).

Enjoy the holidays, All!

I would be interested in the retrospective, what you started with, and how did the API evolve over time.

Sorry, maybe it wasn’t clear in the agenda above, but I meant to suggest the same topic as Alessandra talked about during the meeting (retrospective/perspective of the gmxapi). Thanks for confirming the date!

Just a reminder that the first developer meeting of 2023 will take place tomorrow at 17:00 (Stockholm time)! We still have two open slots in the agenda so if anyone has something they wish to discuss, please let us know!

Looking forwards to seeing you again tomorrow!

Thanks for an interesting overview. GitLab has a good remote work handbook, though as fully remote, not everything would be useful for Gromacs. LAMMPS uses a shared discourse https://matsci.org/ though primarily for the materials science community, but also has Slack and IRC.
