Hi all,

this message contains the final time of the meeting, connection details
and other info.

The (first!) Ada Monthly Meetup will take place this Saturday 3rd of
June at 13:00 UTC Time. That corresponds to 15:00 CET (Central European
Time: Madrid, Paris, Berlin, Rome...).

The meetup will take place over at Jitsi, a conferencing software that
runs on any modern browser. The link is
https://meet.jit.si/2023AdaMonthlyMeetupJune The room name is
"2023AdaMonthlyMeetupJune" and in case it asks for a password, it will
be set to "first".
I do not want to set up a password, but in case it is needed, it will be
the one above without the quotes. The room name is generally not needed
as the link should take you directly there, but I want to write it down
just in case someone needs it.

Talks:

No one proposed any topics, but that is fine as **this first meeting
will not be recorded.** I will record it for internal testing and to see
how it works, but it will not be published.

Having no talks will allow us, the community, to discuss any technical
issues and comments that may help improve the experience of the monthly
meetup. However, I will give a short introduction and share my ideas at
the beginning :) Someone could also propose a topic for the next meetup too.

If I forgot something, please, point it out so that any issues can get
patched out.

Best regards,
Fer

P.S: I, Fer, will post this over at the C.L.A and Ada-Lang.io. Feel free
to repost this to Reddit, Gitter/Matrix, Telegram or any other channels!
The more people know about this, the better (I hope).

P.P.S: this if for C.L.A only. The main thread was named "Ada Monthly
Meetup Proposal". However, as this is no longer a proposal, but the
actual thing, I am creating a new thread. For more information, please,
refer to the aforementioned thread!

Hi all,

this message contains the final time of the meeting, connection details
and other info.

The first “official” Ada Monthly Meetup will take place this Saturday,
1st of July, at 13:00 UTC Time. That corresponds to 15:00 CET (Central
European Time: Madrid, Paris, Berlin, Rome…).

The meetup will take place over at Jitsi, a conferencing software that
runs on any modern browser. The link is
https://meet.jit.si/AdaMonthlyMeetup The room name is “AdaMonthlyMeetup”
and in case it asks for a password, it will be set to “AdaRules”.
I do not want to set up a password, but in case it is needed, it will be
the one above without the quotes. The room name is generally not needed
as the link should take you directly there, but I want to write it down
just in case someone needs it.

Talks:

No one proposed any topics, but there was a proposal that I quite liked!
An Ada user told me they would like for people to present themselves
with a brief introduction so that listeners and other new users could
tell who is who. I think this is a great idea as that allows the
community to get closer together, know who is who and what they work on
and have a better understanding of the speakers and their background.
Obviously, this will be optional, nobody will be forced to do this in
any kind of way. The introductions should be short (think 30s to a
minute) and I will be the first one to do it to help break the ice :smiley:

If I forgot something, please, point it out so that any issues can get
patched out.

Notice! The link to the room has been changed to be more “universal”. So
please, share it with people who received the old link. Another point is
that the password, in case it is needed, has also changed. I sadly
cannot block the room with a password unless a moderator in connected.
This means that there is a very unlikely chance someone could vandalise
the room, but I do not expect this to be a problem. Also the
presentation will not be streamed just yet. I did not have time to test
it but Maxim kindly agreed to help, so that will be coming down the line.

Best regards,
Fer

P.S: I, Fer, will post this over at the C.L.A and Ada-Lang.io . Feel

Hello everybody!

I would like to announce the October Ada Monthly Meetup which will be
taking place on the 7th of October at 13:00 UTC time (15:00 CET). As
always the meetup will take place over at Jitsi. Hopefully this time I
will not have the same amount of technical issues…

If someone would like to propose a talk or a topic, feel free to do so!
I will be talking about FOSDEM, but only for a couple of minutes, since
the dates have already been announced (the same as every year, first
weekend of February).

Here are the connection details from previous posts:
The meetup will take place over at Jitsi, a conferencing software that
runs on any modern browser. The link is [1]. The room name is
“AdaMonthlyMeetup” and in case it asks for a password, it will be set to
“AdaRules”.
I do not want to set up a password, but in case it is needed, it will be
the one above without the quotes. The room name is generally not needed

I might give a small talk on swig4ada, if that would be of interest.

If it's possible to request talks, I'd love to see an overview of
'Pragmarc' and 'Simple Components' by Jeffrey and Dmitry.

I used the neural net component of Pragmarc many years ago but have
not kept up with Pragmarcs development. Also, I've been meaning to look
into Simple Components for quite a while.


Regards.

I will not have the same amount of technical issues…

Streaksu, the creator of the [Ironclad](https://ironclad.cx/) kernel,
has volunteered to give an introductory talk and demonstration of the OS :)

Here are the connection details from previous posts:

P.S: careful with the time! In the EU we will enter daylight savings
time at the end of October. For that reason, I have decided to change
the meeting to UTC 14:00h! Please, check you local timezones!

P.P.S: the October meeting went pretty well! We had quite a few people
and two presentations, one from Francesc, who introduced
[Alice](https://github.com/alice-adventures/Alice) and Rod Kay, who
showed his work on [SWIG4Ada](https://github.com/charlie5/swig4ada). The
meeting was livestreamed to Youtube and can be watched
[here](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Pnuy663gZM) (the video
resolution is only 360p for the time being).

Looking forward to it, Fer. Ironclad sounds *very* interesting.
