Community meeting on IRC 9th December 2021

Schedule: Thursday 2021-12-09T08:00:00Z (Check here for UTC or to download calendar reminder)

Topic proposals for the meeting:

  • add your name/nick using the template below to suggest a topic.
  • indicate how much time you will need for the topic so we can time-box the meeting accordingly
  • please be as thorough as you can with your question/topic
  • if you can’t make the meeting please ask and then name a substitute who can in your place.

It is expected that you show up and present your topic, or name a substitute and make sure they attend in your absence. These IRC meetings are for real time participation and live discussions, otherwise you can post the topic on here and get responses that way.

We need you to be present to clarify details in the topic, and to ensure the discussion is leading to the answers you are looking for! If you do not participate or your question/topic isn’t clear enough it will be postponed. Also: Always ask for more time than you anticipate your topics needs!

Please try and have your topics ready at least 3 days before the meeting. This will help us have answers ready beforehand to save time. Topics announced afterwards will be postponed to the next meeting.

  • Name / IRC nick:
  • topic:
  • some details about the topic:
  • approx. time needed:
  • optional: name of substitute if you cannot make it to the upcoming meeting (and inform your substitute)
  • Name / IRC nick: ddobrev
  • topic: Pure Maps - just one major feature remaining
  • some details about the topic: Selection of routes is, in my opinion, the only remaining feature a fully functional mapping application needs that Pure Maps does not yet have. Let’s discuss how Jolla can help turn it into its official built-in mapping application with @rinigus 's blessing.
  • approx. time needed: 15 minutes.
  • Name / IRC nick: ddobrev
  • topic: Bluetooth support in Android
  • some details about the topic: It’s been a few months since I last brought it up – let’s see what the progress is.
  • approx. time needed: 5 minutes.
  • Name / IRC nick: ddobrev
  • topic: Old Qt in the SDK
  • some details about the topic: Again an old (pun intended) topic but there are few new problems, rather the old ones stay unresolved. Qt 5.6 is unacceptably old for decent application development which dooms the Sailfish SDK to a slow death.
  • approx. time needed: 10 minutes.
