This week we’re starting something new — we’re going to be leaving the teams meeting up as a standing event, not requiring calendar invites. Important: we’re shifting the time to allow folks across the Atlantic to join more easily, but we did have to balance that against the folks on the US West Coast as… Continue reading Technical Call Agenda & New Links
Just a quick note: we’re not going to have our usual tech call tomorrow, Friday the 11th of November 2021. Luke and I have both been tied up with our work elsewhere, and many folks are at AAPEX this week. So we’ll reconvene next week at the usual time and place!
For today’s technical discussions we’ll be getting some github hands-on best practices advice from some experts at ETE Reman who use it as part of their development workflow. We’re planning to use this to establish a contribution guide and process, so github neophytes like myself can stay out of the swamp a little better. We… Continue reading Topics for Tech Meeting 2021-10-29
After some fun with Microsoft Teams and it seemingly not liking participant email changes, we had to re-issue a new series of invites for our Friday technical discussions. This new link should bring you into our discussion, which happens every Friday at 1:00pm US Central / 2:00pm US Eastern / 11:00pm US Pacific. Shoot us… Continue reading Updated Tech Teams Link for October

At long last I have refreshed and replaced the Sandpiper Framework GitHub. You can now download the latest schemas and, eventually, documentation from there. The schema work is at https://github.com/sandpiper-framework/sandpiper-schemas . Please forgive any novice mistakes, as I am still getting the hang of the GitHub workflow process!
We’ve been chugging along defining the API endpoints. The file linked below is last week’s efforts, though it rests in an incomplete state; we’ve come to the limits of comfortably defining things like JSON responses and HTTP methods within Excel. You can count on the endpoints, HTTP methods, and meanings themselves being well set at… Continue reading API Endpoints WIP 2021-07-15 & New Tech Teams Link
Today at 3:00 PM Central US time we’re hosting the first ever “State of the Union” call. Here we’re going to go over our progress over the last six months and what’s coming ahead. This may be a good spot to get a brief introduction to the framework, too, so feel free to stop by!… Continue reading Sandpiper State of the Union 2021Q2
Last week I made several critical changes to the database schema based on work done building a template plan document generator in Python. This fixes bugs in some foreign key fields and adds linking directly to the plan_slices table. Full changelog and download below!
