Dear NEST Users & Developers!

I would like to invite you to our next fortnightly Open NEST Developer Video Conference, today

Monday 26 April, 11.30-12.30 CEST (UTC+2).

As usual, in the Project team round, a contact person of each team will give a short statement summarizing ongoing work in the team and cross-cutting points that need discussion among the teams. The remainder of the meeting we would go into a more in-depth discussion of topics that came up on the mailing list or that are suggested by the teams.

Today there will be an update and discussion about style guides for documentation and code.

Log-in information

We use a virtual conference room provided by DFN (Deutsches Forschungsnetz).

You can use the web client to connect. We however encourage everyone to use a headset for better audio quality or even a proper video conferencing system (see below) or software when available.

Web client

* Visit
* Enter your name and allow your browser to use camera and microphone
* The conference does not need a PIN to join, just click join and you're in.

In case you see a dfnconf logo and the phrase "Auf den Meetingveranstalter warten", just be patient, the meeting host needs to join first (a voice will tell you).

VC system/software

How to log in with a video conferencing system, depends on you VC system or software.

- Using the H.323 protocol (eg Polycom): or

- Using the SIP

- By telephone: +49-30-200-97938800

For those who do not have a video conference system or suitable
software, Polycom provides a pretty good free app for iOS and Android,
so you can join from your tablet (Polycom RealPresence Mobile, available
from AppStore/PlayStore). Note that firewalls may interfere with
videoconferencing in various and sometimes confusing ways.
