Planned topics

  • pip install nest-simulator (#2073) -> test, discuss ++
  • Installation in virtual environments, some issues fixed and merged (see #1959 and #2080)
    • What do we do about release?
  • documentation
    • intersphinx - set up / how to use it effectively
    • (discussion) improving workflow for handling documentation, how to ensure documentation is considered by developers, what kinds of guidelines are needed and where should they be made accessible
  • Connection prototype
  • Code generation

The Plan!

  • STDP unit test #1840 [CL]
    • Moving offset from Event to Time class (discussion/benchmarking) [CL, HEP, Pooja]
  • pip install and install in virtual environments (Guido, Steffen, Robin, Dennis, Pooja)
  • Intersphinx (Jessica, Jochen)
  • Documentation guidelines (Jessica, Charl, Hans Ekkehard (if time))
  • Wang model (Stine, HEP, Charl, Pooja)
  • ntree problems (HEP, Håkon)
  • Issue sorting session (all)


  • New releases -> timebased release?
    • Code breaking ok, the version is the version.
    • Drop deprecation warnings completely?
    • When we make a change -> write in documentation something like "behavior changed with NEST x.y".
    • Next hackathon (portaton): invite users who need help to port their models to NEST 3.0
