Meeting Notes

September 8, 2016

  • Introductions
  • Organization
  • Tech stack
    • We will use the same code as last year, and just change the data
    • Luke gave an overview of the stack, which made use of Jekyll for static site generation and a script to convert Google Forms data.
  • Timeline
    • Short notice gives us less time than last year, but we are not starting from scratch so it evens out
    • No details on conference date or venue yet, which actually gives us some breathing room
    • Last year's team got the site up fairly quickly thanks to divide and conquer approach to site pages
  • Primary tasks
    • Luke will take the first ticket of stripping out the 2016 details from the repo
      • Will also set up stub pages so we don't have to "evolve" pages like last year
    • Eric will tackle upgrading the site to Jekyll 3.2
    • Joshua will contact Shaun about handling DNS
    • Joshua will contact members from last years team about handling precon (C. Harlow) and presentation (D. Lacey) data
  • Other notes
    • We will use the same CSS and color pallette as last year for now. Will swap out background image.
