From Sugar Labs
Jump to: navigation, search

Pre-conference community meetup

  • Bernie gives an overview of the current state of Sugar Labs
  • infrastructure (servers, services, etc.) in in place
  • mode of governance has been established
  • getting away from the old mindset (thinking like a company, asking for permission before doing something)
  • show me the code, we will support you but you should do things yourself
  • SugarLabs is a community not a company
  • more developers are needed
  • people should be pointed to join.sugarlabs.org
  • a few thousand dollars have been collected via individual donations
  • no success in getting grants so far
  • Sugar Labs has no employees, should work like the Gnome foundation, people getting paid by companies who want Sugar to suceed
  • in the larger context SugarLabs should be responsible for high-levels decisions and setting the framework for activities
  • focus on setting up Local Sugar Labs, direct contact to educators and other relevant parties in their respective communities
  • Remora
