I very occasionally drop in on the ROS agriculture video meetings through Zoom. I find it very helpful for learning tidbits about autonomous ag and its related tech stuff. Is there any interest in starting some kind of video meeting with all the AgOpenGPS people all over the world. It might be tricky to find a time that works for most and Zoom is limited to 40 minutes of free meeting time. So I'm just curious if there is interest out there.

I'd be interested also.

I hope to do more with AOG over the next year once I get a new shop built. Haven't really done anything with it in ages, but I'm still very much interested in what's happening.

Good idea! i did look into my survey - so the most users are from Europe and nord america.

according to my picture a good time for all would be 11 am Alberta that would be 7-8 pm in Europe. or 1 pm >9-10 pm here...


another far idea would be a meeting at your side.
i would like to go to holidays and maybe we can have a little program for 2-3 days - talking and visiting farms.
Everyone can make their own the rest of the week or two...

�� Anytime between UTC 20.00 throught to 14.00 and I’m in.
Looks like UTC 18.00 works best for most, unfortunately that looks to be about 2AM for you...not so fun. Might have to get a few more Aussies to join in. Potentially we could go earlier in the morning for North Americans like UTC 14.00 which would be 7AM for Brian and 10PM? for you. 3PM for Austrians... We'll see where this goes.
As long as I don't have to wear a suit and tie I'm in.
LOL. I sure hope not, you could even mute your video of you don't want to be seen. As long as you're wearing clothes I think that's all that is needed.

I hear you I would like to learn too.

Free zoom has 100 participants max 40 min, not bad actually.https://zoom.us/pricing
What time does ROS do their meetings at? I can ask kyler.
Yep, that's what I thought too. ROS Agriculture does their video meetings Tuesdays at UTC 02:00 so 7PM your time. Matt Droter hosts the meeting and they go for an hour. Somebody there is paying.

Thanks Andreas, I was going to see if I could look back at that survey but you already have. I might just do a new Google survey for this meeting time.

That would be pretty neat. We are quite spread out though my farm is about a 46 hour drive from Brian's town. I'm about in the middle of you and Brian.

So what day of the week would work best. Saturday? I think my next post will be a link to a google survey.

I agree with MTZ. Only a handful will be able to contribute, but there are lots who want to listen and learn.

Zoom is pretty good for larger groups. Zoom automatically maximizes the screen of the person speaking and it minimizes those listening. As you said, let's see what happens :)

Maybe that continental video meeting idea might have some traction. I'll put that in the survey too. What are your guys' thoughts on recording the meeting and posting it to Youtube? It could be unlisted, public or whatever. If recording the meeting keeps people from joining we won't do it but it might be nice for folks in the forum to see what was discussed.

Zoom is pretty cool, you can even share your whole screen.

WTalen, will you be initiating the meeting via email? Saturday utc 1800 works here.



I'll pm you my email.



Never used it before, first meeting might be figuring out how to use Zoom lol.

Putting the meeting on youtube sounds like a good idea to me. Gives everyone a chance to see what was discussed.
For the people learning and observering it is perfect way to go back and review details.
Unless the discussion turns into weather or grain prices. Then maybe not so important.

I have some long posts on the other topics, but if I could suggest a first meeting plan, introductions of course, but everything required to make a stable v3 on github, that is clear and concise to build with very high chance of success. And what it takes to get there.
