Dear NEST Users & Developers!

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

Monday April 8, at 11:30 CEST (UTC+0200).

As usual, in the Project team round, a contact person of each team will give a short statement summarizing ongoing and planned work in the team and highlight 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.

Special topic today is the status of the upcoming NEST 3.7 release.

Feel free to join the meeting also if it’s just to bring your own quick questions for direct discussion in the in-depth section.


The agenda for this meeting is also available online, see

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Hans Ekkehard Plesser


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

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.

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.

For more technical information on logging in from various VC systems, please see
