<div style="font-size: 1.0em; background: #daffd5; padding: 10px; border: 1px solid #cde7a8" align=left>The Design team will be holding regular <s>bi-</s>weekly meetings on <s>Mondays at 15:00 UTC</s> on irc.freenode.net (channel: #sugar-meeting). The meeting is targeted to Sugar core and activity developers, but remains open to anyone interested. Its primary purpose is to open the design approach, making it more transparent and allowing the community to provide feedback on both current and upcoming features. Please add to the agenda below, join in with your ideas, or add them to the [[Talk:Design_Team/Meetings|Discussion page]]. See [[IRC]] for information on getting there.
 +
 
 +
In general, discussion focuses on:
 +
* high level design goals and ideas
 +
* feedback and discussion of problems in the current design
 +
* reviews of design proposals
 +

==== Post-meeting Discussion ====
 +
According to Sugar Labs [[Sugar_Labs/Legal/Code_of_Conduct|Code of Conduct]] "Sugar is a place for children to explore, learn, teach and reflect. Sugar Labs is a place where we all can explore, learn, teach and reflect. The same underlying principles that make Sugar great -discovery, collaboration, and reflection- are central to the way Sugar community operates."  The Design team should not be an exemption. It should be composed of children, teachers, developers and non-developers as well. -- Laura
 +
:Disagree.  There should be no requirement for any of the informal Sugar Labs teams to contain any specific representation.  Only those truly interested in designing, and with experience in design, should be on a design team.  Adding those without knowledge and communication skills in design is counter-productive.  --[[User:Quozl|Quozl]] ([[User talk:Quozl|talk]]) 01:20, 23 September 2017 (EDT)
 +
 
 +
==== Pre-meeting Discussion ====
 +
:The design team is composed of designers who have made significant contributions to Sugar design. What members of the team agreed to this meeting time? Who will be attending? --Walter (talk) 11:24, 19 September 2017‎ (UTC)
 +
::Agreed.  To my knowledge, no members agreed to this meeting time and none of them will be attending.  --[[User:Quozl|Quozl]] ([[User talk:Quozl|talk]]) 21:24, 18 September 2017 (EDT)
 +
:This date/time is also the Jewish New Year, which makes it impossible for some community members to attend. --[[User:Walter|Walter]] ([[User talk:Walter|talk]]) 18:38, 19 September 2017 (EDT)
 +
 
 +
====Proposed agenda====
 +
* Upgrading Sugar UI, defining this team/event main lines of action
 +
::Not a design issue.  Please be more specific about what you want the design team to do. --[[User:Quozl|Quozl]] ([[User talk:Quozl|talk]]) 21:19, 18 September 2017 (EDT)
 +
* <s>Elimination of gender selection on first (welcome) screen</s>
 +
::Not a design issue.  Make a pull request for code review. --[[User:Quozl|Quozl]] ([[User talk:Quozl|talk]]) 21:19, 18 September 2017 (EDT)
 +
* <s>Proposal to get back Ignacio's patch so that users can modify their main icons</s>

The Design team will be holding regular bi-weekly meetings on Mondays at 15:00 UTC on irc.freenode.net (channel: #sugar-meeting). The meeting is targeted to Sugar core and activity developers, but remains open to anyone interested. Its primary purpose is to open the design approach, making it more transparent and allowing the community to provide feedback on both current and upcoming features. Please add to the agenda below, join in with your ideas, or add them to the Discussion page. See IRC for information on getting there.

In general, discussion focuses on:

  • high level design goals and ideas
  • feedback and discussion of problems in the current design
  • reviews of design proposals

Hint: You can use an online time calculator to convert from UTC to your local time zone or back.

To convert UTC to your local time, use this converter or run:

date -d '[current date] [time] UTC'
date -d '2008-06-03 14:00 UTC'

Please post discussion materials for the full community. Design Team/Proposals and Features are 2 good places for referencing design ideas.

The Sugar Labs Meetings calendar is available in a variety of formats at these links: XML.gif ICal.gif HTML.gif.

Friday September 14 2018 - 12:00PM UTC

Proposed agenda

  • Restructuring the design team
  • Working with the marketing team
  • Design improvements(sugar desktop, sugar icons, "logo, website" etc)


Thursday September 21 2017 - 11 PM UTC

Post-meeting Discussion

According to Sugar Labs Code of Conduct "Sugar is a place for children to explore, learn, teach and reflect. Sugar Labs is a place where we all can explore, learn, teach and reflect. The same underlying principles that make Sugar great -discovery, collaboration, and reflection- are central to the way Sugar community operates." The Design team should not be an exemption. It should be composed of children, teachers, developers and non-developers as well. -- Laura

Disagree. There should be no requirement for any of the informal Sugar Labs teams to contain any specific representation. Only those truly interested in designing, and with experience in design, should be on a design team. Adding those without knowledge and communication skills in design is counter-productive. --Quozl (talk) 01:20, 23 September 2017 (EDT)

Pre-meeting Discussion

The design team is composed of designers who have made significant contributions to Sugar design. What members of the team agreed to this meeting time? Who will be attending? --Walter (talk) 11:24, 19 September 2017‎ (UTC)
Agreed. To my knowledge, no members agreed to this meeting time and none of them will be attending. --Quozl (talk) 21:24, 18 September 2017 (EDT)
This date/time is also the Jewish New Year, which makes it impossible for some community members to attend. --Walter (talk) 18:38, 19 September 2017 (EDT)

Proposed agenda

  • Upgrading Sugar UI, defining this team/event main lines of action
Not a design issue. Please be more specific about what you want the design team to do. --Quozl (talk) 21:19, 18 September 2017 (EDT)
  • Elimination of gender selection on first (welcome) screen
Not a design issue. Make a pull request for code review. --Quozl (talk) 21:19, 18 September 2017 (EDT)
  • Proposal to get back Ignacio's patch so that users can modify their main icons
Not a design issue. Make a pull request for code review. --Quozl (talk) 21:19, 18 September 2017 (EDT)

Agenda

We discussed design goals for the next release 0.86. Design mockups will be created in response to the high-level features listed below (potentially in advance of SugarCamp 2009 on May 16th), to further illustrate the design intent and allow for integration with the development schedule.

High-level feature recap:

  • polish activity list in Home
  • support filtering/searching via tags in Home
  • add list views to groups/neighorhood
  • make groups dynamic (like neighborhood)
  • extend activity chat
  • add overlay chat to groups/neighborhood
  • design a bulletin-board _activity_
  • remove management from activity list, ensure _all_ installed activities are in Journal
  • new toolbar design

Concrete design/development tasks:

  1. design mockups to make the frame more discoverable
  2. design mockups to polish the new toolbars
  3. Home list view: remove the date column and enable alphabetical sort. Label versions "Version x"
  4. Design mockups for tagging/filtering/search within Home view
  5. Draft changes to activity.info file to support tagging
  6. Design mockups for overlay chat in groups/neighborhood (should also include revising the activity chat..which exists but not as earlier designs proposed)
  7. Design mockups of bulletin board activity
  8. Design mockups for list views in groups and neighborhood

November 26th 2008

Agenda

We'd like to hold a meeting this week while the topics discussed at the recent SugarCamp are fresh in our minds. Though this is not part of the usual meeting cycle, I think it's important enough to merit an extra meeting. Due to Thanksgiving on Thursday, we'll hold it on Wednesday instead.

Short Term Roadmap Definition

To capitalize on the extremely valuable discussions at the recent SugarCamp in Cambridge, we'd like to take some time to define a rough feature roadmap for the Sugar OS within the OLPC 9.1 timeframe. As a starting point for this discussion, we should likely review the various design proposals presented on the last day of the conference.

  • Groups
  • Resuming activities from Home
  • Enhancing the Journal
  • Improving Toolbars
  • Encouraging Naming/Tagging

Visual Clipboard API

For reference, please see the clipboard specification. For a more targeted list of features and goals, please see the clipboard planning page.

We had a fairly long discussion about this, which didn't seem to get too far. Fortunately, a follow-up between Marco and I clarified some points, and we agreed that it should be possible to implement the majority of the goals across the system using the "formats" allowed in the GTK protocols, and falling back to sane defaults when extra info isn't provided.

Some references:

Advancing the Journal

I'd like to have a conversation regarding the current iteration of the Journal, future plans, and the steps we hope to take toward them in the next major release so we can scope our goals. The latest mockups (though slightly out of date) can be seen here.

Due to the lengthy clipboard discussion, we didn't hit this topic today. We'll pick it up first thing next week.

Icon reviews

We discussed three icons today.

Settings (control panel): By popular demand, a wrench was chosen as the base for this icon, though it was also proposed that a wrench and screwdriver could be clearer. It was agreed that the wrench is a simpler icon, and a more generic metaphor which could be used to represent "settings" throughout the system. A few visual tweaks (Trac #8198) made many happier with the wrench, but since this isn't a major change they can come post 8.2.

View Details (Journal): The old designs for this button closely resembled a play button (but with an open triangle, akin to a greater than (>) symbol), which some found confusing. The new proposal is an ellipsis [...] icon, to indicate the idea that more info is available, but omitted in the abbreviated list view. This works nicely within the [wiki.laptop.org/go/Designs/Journal new Journal designs], since the icons will occasionally appear within a string of icon-annotated text. All present agreed the latter was a better direction. This change could make 8.2.

Access Point: Recent experience reports have indicated that the removal of an identifier of the connected AP is frustrating. The proposal discussed is shown [1], which wraps the former AP icon (the circle) in "parenthesis" (meant to indicate radio signal). This retains the primitive circular shape of the current access points, but illustrates which is connected in a way which alludes to the wireless activity LED. The point was discussed that the other LED is actually more semantically correct, but not as suitable as an icon.

Additionally, these alternate designs were proposed, using antennae to make the purpose of the icons clearer. We may wish to elicit feedback about these alternatives from teachers and kids to see which convey the notion of wireless connectivity the best. The triangle proposed here was used once, and subsequently removed due to some distaste for the shape in this context, but it may still convey the idea better with the antenna. This change is strongly desired for 8.2.
