RetroNetCall

Initially we started to cover a couple of retronetworking topics at the OsmoDevCall, but it really made sense to run the pure retro related topics as a separate series of events. In October 2022, we forked the Retro Net working Call format from OsmoDevCall.

The format serves two major purposes:

  1. technical presentations about retronetworking relevant topics - ideally current/recent developments
    • can be pre-recorded to avoid any problems with technical setup, streaming, ...
    • should ideally have a Q+A session at their initial "airing" during one OsmoDevCall
  2. unstructured supplementary social event (USSE)
    • random chat in audio (optionally video)
    • not recorded, obviously

The recording of the technical presentation should then be permanently made available. The recordings can be found in several formats at https://downloads.osmocom.org/videos/retronetcall/ . They can also be found on https://media.ccc.de/c/retronetcall

Not every RetroNetCall would necessarily need the two parts, but I think it would be great if we can make that happen.

Timing

Wednesday evening, 8pm CET/CEST, every 1st Wednesday of the month

The next couple of events hence are:
  • Wednesday, December 7, 2022 (ISDN B-channel protocols: V.110, V.120, X.75)
  • Wednesday, January 4, 2022
  • Wednesday, February 1, 2022
  • Wednesday, March 1, 2022

Venue / Platform

We are currently using infrastructure of KNF, a German non-profit internet organization of which laforge is a member.

The URL to join the meeting is https://meeting5.franken.de/b/har-0y1-wch-et4

There currently is no password or authentication, we try to welcome anyone. If this turns out to be a problem, we might lock it down in the future, let's hope that's not required.
