Show-and-tell, 5 min each. Whoever has something to show (working code, test, documentation) that is likely of interest to other Fediverse developers and not broadly known yet.
Discussion of best agenda for regular network calls.
Some of the attendees (add yourself with name, project affiliation/role, Fediverse handle) -- entirely optional
@narF@mstdn.fr(i work in video games)
Backchannel: let's simply use General on https://matrix.to/#/#fediverse-developer-network:matrix.org
Notes (previous call's notes are at https://fedidevs.org/notes/20230410 )
Let's do introductions on the Matrix Intro channel, part of the Fediverse Developer Network room, linked from https://fedidevs.org/
The admin/mods of the Matrix Space could pin the important rooms (channels) as "recommended" to give them more visibility in the Space.
New visitors should be directed to the Space (instead of a specific room) using this link: https://matrix.to/#/#fediverse-developer-network:matrix.org
Tim Bray's high throughput filtering library, posts:
Bob: working on "prospective search" -- discussion of Fediverse applications
Johannes: generating single markdown page with the Webfinger file from various representative fediverse apps, second single markdown page with actor files
- Feedback: generally useful, should be on the website
Ryan: proposal for how to translate identity and mechanics between protocols: AP, IndieWeb, Bluesky, Nostr: https://fed.brid.gy/docs#translate
- Feedback is welcome! Comment here or here
Jeremiah requested JSON-LD help regarding an idea for extending the Actor and Activity object. Bob pointed to JSON-LD.org playground for validating.
Role of this meeting in the future?
W3C planning to restart monthly meetings
Jeremiah: keep it as a meetup for fediverse developers to share progress/pains/requests for help
Ben: helpful to create trust with other developers, easier to discuss wild ideas via a/v chat than writing sometimes
Bob: What's the best programming language to put example code in for fediverse developers?
Jeremiah: curious to know what the language spread is among server implementations
Bob asked, in jest, about the Bliss programming language. No one had heard of it. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/spe.470
about once a month, "between" SWICG meetings
Structure: brief (like today, 5-min) updates / requests for help from developers: hear what other people are working on, struggling with, ...
Encouraged to tell up-front what question/update you want to share, so people have an idea up-front what the content of the meeting will be.
