Monthly Meetup #15: 12th of June @ 20:00 UTC

edited June 5 in General

In this monthly meetup the keynote presentation will be given by the developer of the Blender-OSM Add-on, Vladimir Elistratov (@prochitecture ), on its current state and ongoing development.
The ultimate goal of the add-on is to generate an environment in Blender out of OpenStreetMap data as realistically as possible. A part of the talk will be dedicated to the textual description of the building style.

  • One of the topics for the discussion afterwards I'd like to address is regarding the current active polls for "Preferred work day" and "Preferred time in a work day" for a monthly meetup; see discussion and please VOTE :)

  • Thank you for the announcement. Everyone is invited :)

    This sounds very interesting. Looking forward to it. Would be cool if you put in an ics file link so people get it in their calendar quickly.

  • Thanks @topologic that's good advice. I created one with an online tool (not sure it is 100% ok but looks so) but I cannot upload directly an ics file in the post. So, I have created a dropbox link to the file and added the link to the original post. It seems to work, clicking the link and then opening the file. If anyone encounters any problem please let me know.
    For the upcoming meetups maybe we can do something better than a dropbox link.

    Cool. Worked for me perfectly. A couple of extra steps, but worked as expected and at the correct time for my timezone. Thanks

    Have you tied uploading it to the wiki? If that isn't allowed we can probably add it to the list of accepted file types.

  • hi there. I take the role of host for the monthly meetup that Ioannis organizes. Can we maybe meet online soon briefly to see how your lighting and acoustics are? Sometimes those things are easy to improve. Also I'd like to start introducing people a bit better so we all know who's talking, so I'd like to just hear a bit about who you are and your background if that's okay. We probably have Ralph Grabowski from upfrontezine as a guest so it seem like a good time to see if we can lift the quality of our setup where that's possible. Maybe you can just catch me in the chat https://osarch.org/chat/

  • @duncan great, yes that would be useful as Vladimir was asking me if he can show videos during his presentation. So, a test session is definitely needed and I will try to be present, too, to check my setup for the video recording.

    Hmm no I didn't think of that, will try, thanks

  • @Jesusbill videos with BBB can actually work well I think since everyone can download a copy of a presentation and let them be controlled by the presenter. Definitely worth testing as they are often a terrible way to present if there are poor connections. Can you suggest some times @prochitecture ? I know it might be a big close but Thursday European evening works for me. I'm working on a pressed project delivery up to Thursday. @Jesusbill do you have a quick way to get hold of Vladimir so we can set something up?

  • @duncan yes I do, just messaged you in the chat

  • Not voting on purpose, as i didn't realy have anymore time contraints.

  • @duncan, @Jesusbill
    Let's have the test session on Thursday. Please propose the time.
