Chat, Networking & Communication Resources
Overview of our Chat Resources -- which we host on Gitter.im (not Slack)
We've worked to provide reasonably organized "chat" resources given the severe limitations of such systems as opposed to forums (but gitter is better than slack). Currently there are two CppMSG projects: one for C++ and one for AI.
CppMSG_Cpp : C++ Language
C++ which came first and has no suffix at this location:
- 'Community' - https://gitter.im/CppMSG
For general worldwide discussion of C++, including information of interest to CppMSG_Cpp students, the 'Lobby' "sub-room" is most appropriate:
CppMSG_AI : Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
AI adopted CppMSG (and so needed a suffix) at this location:
- 'Community' - https://gitter.im/machinelearning_ai
- For general worldwide discussion of AI (including information of general interest to CppMSG_AI students) the 'Lobby' 'sub-room' is most appropriate:
JS adopted CppMSG (and so needed a suffix). All of our text based communications happen at this one location:
Important for All Sub-Groups!
Also please check and join the other _important_ rooms within each "community" by going to the "community" links above, where you can see the "sub-rooms" (called "rooms" by gitter.im). These rooms are where we get into detailed discussion on the topic of the room. Create a room yourself, if the system allows, or ask an organizer to do it for you. You probably don't get notifications of the creation on new rooms, but we try to mention that in the general/lobby room of each community when it happens.
Online Meetings with Audio and Screen sharing.
Here is where we we share our computer screens and host the online component of a meeting:
- sometimes this link doesn't work, so we create a new one and post it in the relevant gitter.im 'room'.
If the meeting gets too large we optionally use:
Criticisms of evolution of naming conventions for links and sub-groups:
Yes we know the C++ URL does not have the trailing "_Cpp" to achieve symetry with the CppMSG_AI standard.
Yes we know that the group & sub-group naming convention is also different. Study it for 20 minutes (we spend 50+ hours) and you will understand how it evolved and made sense at the time when done. :)
It could be better, happened because of evolution and expansion of scope, but things can't be changed now.
