Technical Call Agenda 2022-09-22

This week we’ll discuss the 1.0.0-FINAL release that I’ll be arranging over the weekend (assuming that no major issues are raised in the next day or two). I’ve gotten some good feedback and suggestions for corrections, all minor and nothing breaking, so I think we’re on target. We’ll also talk about the future direction of… Continue reading Technical Call Agenda 2022-09-22

I also wrote an initial file granulation strategy description and need some opinions on how to specify restrictions for the file path itself. Just as a stub, I set the restriction for a file… Continue reading Technical Call Agenda 2022-08-18

Technical Call Agenda 2022-08-11

This week I’ll summarize the changes I’ve made and get your feedback on a few topics related to key-values slices and delimited values. I believe this should wrap up the last of the fundamental ACES granulation discussion and clear the way for the PIES strategy writing, but I’m sure there will still be some good… Continue reading Technical Call Agenda 2022-08-11
