1600 UTC: New Flowgraph User Experience Design Sprint
Bernard Tyers and Derek Kozel:
Creating a new flowgraph in GNU Radio Companion seems simple, but the blacklisted "default" flowgraph ID that prevents generating and running a flowgraph right away is just plain frustrating and unnecessary. Bernard and Derek will be talking about what the issue is and figuring out how to solve it to provide a better user experience.
1700 UTC: Going through the GNU Radio issue tracker
Martin Braun and hopefully others
We'll take a look at open issues on the GNU Radio github issue tracker.
1800 UTC: Working on Theming Support for GRC
I've started working on some simple Pythonic way to make it easier for UX designers to play around with the way things look. Might as well continue working on that while people watch!
1900 UTC: Upstreaming New Blocks
The Basis Change block which converts circular polarized signals to linear and linear to circular would be useful to have included in the default GNU Radio installation. Derek and Matt wrote the code for the block almost two years ago, but it's sat in a neglected repository since then! Time to clean it up, update it to the latest GNU Radio, and submit a PR.
1800 UTC: Debugging a not so basic block
Derek will be testing and debugging an issue reported about using the basic_block class in an embedded Python Block. Hopefully there's no actual bug and the end result will be an update to the Embedded Python Block docs page. https://wiki.gnuradio.org/index.php/Embedded_Python_Block
1900 UTC: Fix your first GNU Radio bug!
We will coach you through getting your GNU Radio programming environment set up, and coach you towards your first pull request. Join us on our Jitsi call. You will need to share your screen.
