Data Working Group Call for Interest

Open edX want to start a Data Working Group. We certainly have ideas and opinions on the matter; is someone interested in being part of this group?

Let me know if we need to create a new Tempo account for time spent working with the group.

ticket to log work (for now)

I’m totally interested, and have joined #wg-data, but I generally can’t make it to synchronous meetings in Boston timezones.

@gabriel Thanks for relaying this. For logging the time though, can it be on cell-specific tickets? Time logged on BIZ ticket don’t count in cells sustainability, so they would be unbounded – for this reason, it’s important that only non-cell members log time on BIZ tickets.

@antoviaque sure, note taken. What account should I use for this? Contributions? Or create a new one?

@gabriel Yup, the contributions account can work - as long as it’s logged on a ticket belonging to a specific cell, it will count against that cell’s contributions budget. Note that it’s a cell budget, so the cell itself is the one deciding whether to spend time on it or not (based both on sustainability, and availability).

@antoviaque got it, thanks.

@raul @jill I don’t know how you manage recurring tasks like helping the community or discussing subjects like analytics, should I create a ticket or maybe there’s an existing one that we can use?

+1, we need to limit it if the cell doesn’t have sustainability. Attending a meeting or doing small tasks is ok when it’s a small amount of hours. But please don’t promise edX we’ll start a new project based on this, or that we’ll do recurring work. We’d need to check budgets first to see whether the cell can do it, and which cell.

I’ve created FAL-1999 for @raul and I, starting next sprint.
I find that Recurring tasks don’t get much of my attention though, so we might need to create new tasks each sprint with specific goals?
