After our first beta townhall that we just did (#2358), we kind of decided that we wanted to do one of these a month. The day of the week and time of day dont really matter to me too much, although I would probably like to not have it be 11:00pm on a Friday again. 🍺

PS: If you missed the first townhall, check it out here!

There are some techical things that we should probably hammer out. Definitely use hardwired internet connection, set up the attendees in advance of going live, probably have a schedule to adhere to...

I think we should hit on some predetermined topics at the beginning, just basically give a brief synopsis of what we've been up to over the last month, and then open it up to questions.

What do you guys think about that format?

That sounds excellent. IGN's podcasts follow a similar format where they will time answering questions to keep things moving along.

Just an FYI. I added a Wiki page at https://github.com/jekyll/jekyll/wiki/Town-Hall-Meetings with a link to the town hall meeting video on YouTube as well as some of the topics discussed. I was away for the second half of the follow-up Hangout so hopefully someone would be able to add in those thoughts.

If we're trying to narrow it down to a particular day, Friday night would be good because that's Saturday morning for me, but I think most people wouldn't want to be up late to participate in a Google Hangouts session on a Friday night.

If it's Saturday night (which becomes Sunday morning in the timezone here), I'll have to check if I can make it because Sunday is a workday in this part of the world.

I'm going to have to cancel... I have to travel on Friday night.

I'll catch up by watching the recorded session and will post back with suggestions/questions/concerns.

Let's come up with some topics for Friday's hangout.

  • Obviously more Jekyll 3 discussion, steps on how to get there, etc.
  • The Jekyll Meetup at GitHub HQ in Feb

Que mas?

We should also discuss the forums/community issue that popped up recently in #2358 (see this comment).

A timezone would be great!

Here is a fantastic tool to announce such dates:

@grobmeier 7pm PST, probably? I'd like to move the times in future months to make it possible for Europe to participate.

Thanks @parkr - 7pm PST will be 4am my time, if I am correct:

I will miss this one most likely, but look forward to the stream :)

I'm willing to make it a few hours later (about 6AM your time) but that's up to the rest of the team.

I watched the streamed event.

I think the one in Dec '14 was an hour long, whereas this one was for a half hour. Anyway, looking forward to the next one in February.

Glad you tuned in! An hour is a long time, so I tried to keep this one at 30 minutes. This is only the second one we did, so feedback is absolutely necessary for us to fine tune this thing.

@troyswanson do you have a date for the next Town Hall Meeting? I'm interested to see the current developments of Jekyll. I have watched the last two Town Hall Meeting and really enjoyed them.

@MartinRogalla Thanks, man. I just opened a new issue for Feb's Townhall (#3482).

Glad you've found our little chat sessions helpful. If you have any feedback on how to improve the meetings, please let us know.

I'm going to close this issue since it's long past.
