Monthly Math development meeting: 01/21/2021, 10 am ET

Hey all, we’ve been having monthly Math meetings on the third Thursday of the month. The next one is tomorrow, Jan 21, 2021, at 10 am!

This will last no more than one hour; if we need more time, we will schedule additional time.

This meeting is open to all those that currently contribute to the Math library or that would like to contribute to the Math library. If you’d like an invite to the Google Calendar event, please DM me with your Google handle. If you’d like to just have a copy of the event on your calendar, please use this link:

  • this is a chance to collaborate and coordinate efforts. We’re expecting everyone to be kind and courteous. And patient. We have a team with diverse backgrounds.
  • impactful decisions will not be made at these meetings. That will continue to be done online on these forums. The meetings are a good time to discuss and get on the same page, but the decision making will be done online where we can include the opinions of others that can’t make the meeting.
  • important discussions that happen at the meeting will be communicated back online on these forums. If they don’t make it back here, it wasn’t important. No one will be penalized for not being present at a meeting.

If there’s anything you know you want to talk about, please post here. This is a good time to request help from others if there’s expertise that you need.

Potential agenda items:

  • new year, new time? what works for everyone?
  • does someone want to lead the meetings?
  • brainstorm on where we could put collaborative effort in 2021?

@rok_cesnovar is having trouble getting in. Needs approval or something. It worked for me, but I don’t see anything to give him approval.

Sorry about that! I’m letting people back in.

We’re talking about profiling in Stan 2.26.

Here’s who’s on right now:

@bbbales2, @andrjohns, @stevebronder, me.
