I will be giving an update on the Push Notification project completed by @laddha-adi for Google Summer of Code.

Thanks Jeff,

I am planning to join the call – no specific topics to discuss at this stage.

cheers, Ben

I plan to discuss-

  1. Upcoming 2.1 release
  2. TSC 2 formation coming up
  3. Rename…

Hi Jeff and Waylon,

Some members of our delivery team here in Ho Chi Minh City will join as well, so if it’s possible to include a brief introduction on the purpose of the calls.

If there isn’t time that’s fine, I can do so outside of the meeting.

cheers, Ben

ODK 2 Developer calls bring together the developer community to discuss issues. We discuss roadmap, issues that need addressing, and prioritize the upcoming features. Developers give brief reports on the areas they are improving.

Everyone is welcome to participate in these calls.
