#everyonecancontribute Kaeffchen: Archive

Our website and blog came from the first iteration where we started with a Google doc, and then later moved to GitLab projects, issues and this website deployed with pages. This blog post summarizes everything which happened thus far and adds the archive for older Kaeffchens as well. The meeting notes are untouched and provide the raw impressions, typos included.

Everything in this blog post covers our German Kaeffchen. We made the decision to chat in German/Austrian and document the notes in English. Future iterations will introduce an English and maybe Spanish ☕ chat too.

You can follow the Kaeffchen YouTube Playlist and dive deeper below.

  • Michael: Streaming and Hosting
    • GitLab Unfiltered -> Stream target for live streams, currently disabled
    • Setup? Zoom? Streamyard? Stageenttv?
    • Michael: Zoom+YT = super easy
    • Michael: Streamyard has a 6 people limit, Stageenttv is more for single guests or a moderated show.
    • Markus: A livestreams is a good idea since people can peek in and maybe join the next time.
    • Michael: Zoom has a bug with YT streaming which is why this now disabled in the business client temporarily.
    • Jitsi (https://meet.jit.si/) tested and would work (Mario) 🆗
    • Zoom/OBS/YouTube tested and would work (Mario) 🆗
  • Michael: Keeping the tech uptodate - 2nd iteration:
    • Update the weekly agenda on findings to talk about, including categories
    • #everonecancontribute “newsletter” here - WDYT?
