Re: [ide-dev] Interest in conference calls?

I'm interested in joining.

I love the idea of having calls or better: meetings, using a modern video-conferencing system instead of a bridge for phone calls.

Video conferences are great to have a "real team" experience, as we can have a simultaneous form of communication, rather than serial. As examples: on a video meeting, when someone is talking we can use body language to signal we understand, or we can send messages like bug numbers, and - by the way - it is easier to write minutes because we're in front of a PC.

Personally, I advise using a system like we utilized in the JSDT meetings:
- blue jeans as video conf system: as you can join both via video conf and from a phone; plus it works efficiently for screen sharing
- A shared notepad to take notes/minutes, and report actions. Here I suggest Google Docs, as you can paste images, which is useful if someone is having a screen-sharing session, and others are taking screenshots on the fly to put on the meeting minutes.

If we decide to go in the above direction, I volunteer to write the meeting minutes. That would be a terrific learning experience!

If we decide to go for non-call systems, I like the idea of using Mattermost, or any similar system which allow a fluent conversation where we can also conveniently use media and links. Â

The Language Server Protocol started by Microsoft but now being adopted by all Eclipse IDEs really opens the door to innovation while maintaining the advanced IDE features we all love. Itâs a great architecture that allows us to experiment with new backends and new frontends independently and have them all work together. If you canât tell, Iâm pretty excited about all this :).

We could at least start with one and see if we find value in it. The LSP would be a great first topic. We could also bring up UX guidelines issues and talk through some of them. We could get updates from the various language projects and the different front end projects (Che and Orion, for example) and share our visions and find commonality. Lots of things we could do.
