December Community Hangout

Ehi folks,
I’d like to see your faces again :slight_smile: we can continue conference topics or governance.
Which day/time do you prefer? Unfortunately, I can’t do anything after 18 CET and saturday/sunday all the day
Just let me know your preferences so I can setup a new doodle

December 19th or 21st or 22nd anytime between 10:00 and 16:00 CET would be good for me.

Weekends I am unfortunately busy.

Otherwise I am usually stuck to around 17:30 CET onwards for a weekday.

For me it’s not working before 16:30 CET. At this moment 12th to 16th December is possible. 19th is ok to, but also not before 16:30.

15 dec is the only option for me since I work until 18.00h each monday and wednesday. I am home around 19.00h on those days.
If you go for the 15th, I can join. Looking forward to that!

Community hangout … what does it mean?

Is that like a big conference call or a live event ? Is there a link to how that works ?

Me too, same question: What is a community hangout?

Sort of multi-conference video-chat to meet each other and talk primarly about nethserver. Everyone is free to join (number of participants could be limited by video streaming resources)…

Hi @asl
Hangout is the ‘tool’ we use. It is a Google service and you need a google account to use it: https://hangouts.google.com/
If you know of any other service that can serve as a live (video) chat service (without data grabbing companies looking over ouw shoulders and preferably open source) please tell us!

Why is that not a Nethservice yet? :smile:

I’m looking at webex. Not free for the host, but free for participants. The subscription model could pay for the service and be a real friendly way of having users join a call from wherever when they need support and you require talking and explaining over and forth. This is not on my shortlist tho, so investigation is preliminary.

If an open-source alternative exist, I would like to know as well.

If I filter on alternativeto.net I get some options as opensource replacements: https://alternativeto.net/software/webex/?license=opensource
I see BigBlueButton wich also is widely used in educational solutions. So I would favor for that if it would come to NethServer as a module.

…if that could be integrated in asterix, so as to accept incomming regular landline calls into webhosted meetings, depending on bandwith cost and thus how feasible it would be to self-host, would be fantastic.

There’s also apache openmeetings. I used these tools some time ago, don’t know how they developed. But replacing Hangouts and providing meeting software integrated in NS would be really nice.

This would be awesome!

What about using NethConference? Would it be suitable?

Doh! The one day in the list (18th December) that I could potentially make it as I am not at work, I am at a school event!

Looks like I’ll either miss the event guys - sorry
