JamieW General Announcements:
---> No meeting next week due to the holiday. See you in 2017!  <-----
Matthias B Reminder to try to make full sentences with all the informations you want to give, otherwise it is a daunting task to try to make a written summary on the mailing list. If writing the summary take more than 30min I won't send it. (Matthias)

  • Creating a Project Management folder on GitHub
  • Aha!
  • Nice UI with useful tools for tracking sub-projects
  • Problematic in that Aha! needs to be the system of record for all inputs (ie things go into Aha before they go into GitHub) - pretty much a deal-breaker, moving on.

  • Scheduling important events
  • JupyterLab - “Silent” alpha in January, Beta in mid- to late-February. 1.0 in June/July 2017

Grant N

Matthias B
  • Where is it now ? I missed that.
Michael P • also, widgets! :)

• released 4.3 & 5.0 
• broke in memory templates and Thomas Kluyver made a quick fix (waiting on merge)
  • should have a 5.0.1 or 5.1 after that
• spent time trying to figure out why docs were breaking (there were at least 3 reasons)

  • I would appreciate not to have to talk, not feeling well. 
  • Taking shape, nothing worth to report. 
  • (Auto) Backport currently working.
  • Trying to work around some limitation of GitHub (beta) API waiting fixes on GitHub side.

Thomas K
  • The train from SF does not have wifi - this is quite relaxing if you're expecting it. Most of you probably have mobile data anyway.
Ana R
  • Thanks for the tip, Thomas Kluyver - seems like there are more options from Oakland OKJ. I see that there is Amtrak bus service from Oakland OKJ to San Luis Obispo SLO which does have WiFi which will get you here in 5 hours. The direct train ride (no transfer required) from OKJ does not have WiFi and also does not allow for checked baggage. Taking the train here is really a novelty, not super practical.
  • If you take the Amtrak bus from OAK/SF, there's a final stop right on campus. It was a 5-hour trip from OAK-SLO for me in August on a Tuesday. The round trip train booking requires one of those legs on the bus- it was super low-stress

Peter P Peter Parente
  • Merged contributed PRs against dashboards server for making it relocatable under JHub (tnx to @jhpedemonte and @danielfrg)
  • Added @danielfrg as contributor on dashboards server for Auth0 login, wiki updates, etc.
  • Merged some lingering docker-stacks PRs and groomed the docker-stacks issue list
  • Self-education about JLab (figured out how one panel widget can watch for changes in other notebook widgets, models, contexts, kernels).
Min R Min RK
  • teaching at Swedish Bioinformatics Workshop Thursday/Friday
  • cool!
Min R
  • login tokens on by default on notebook
In class, listening in :emoji_1f64a:

  • investigating possible comm race condition exposed by %matplotlib notebook -- initial conversation with Matthias, will follow-up as needed
  • finishing up hub lab extension
Michael P Michael Pacer 
• working on hiding output via tags
• what more before nbconvert 5.0? beta?
  • We created the JupyterLab org and `@jupyterlab` npm context for JupyterLab projects
  • That broke lots of things, so we're in the process of updating everything
  • (For Sylvain) - working a lot on separating Jupyter Notebook from the Jupyter Server, and working on the extension mechanism.
  • Working on polishing up widgets so we can get a dev release out that works in both Lab and notebook (in particular, upgrading jqueryui, the accordion widget, etc.)
Nicholas B Nicholas Bollweg :speak_no_evil:  
  • more jupyterlab extension hacking (theming, bundling)
  • mostly Day Job stuff
thomas@kluyver.me.uk Thomas Kluyver  :speak_no_evil:  
  • Preparing to come to the US in 2 weeks!
Dan A
  • Coming near NYC at all?
  • Sorry, no - flying directly to California
Dan A
  • Had to try :- ) Have a good trip!
Matthias B
  • Just jump out once you are over the east coast. 
  • Never go over it. Go over some very cold bits of Canada!
Michael P
  • Canada does have an east coast :)
  • Yes, but I may not even really go over that
Michael P
  • This seems like a variant on the euler bridge problem…
  • Ah! will you be flying over the pole? 
  • Not quite, but because of Great Circles, the route does go a long way north. My first look at the US is usually somewhere around Montana, I think.
  • Also winds - flying back east takes a more southerly route than going out
  • We will be sending out a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Technical Writer Contract position (1 year) If anyone knows an awesome tech writer who would be interested in submitting a proposal, please send me their contact info.
  • Grace Hopper starts tonight in Houston. Yee haw
Michael P
  •  Hi Jamie! I hope that Grace Hopper is going well!
