Dear Western Hemisphere team,
Today in the PLP TC i like to discuss the upcoming collaborators face-to-face meeting March 17th link
In this face-to-face we are supposed to have a breakout session of one hour to discuss ongoing work etc all nice, but most importantly there is a hack-a-thon session planed on large scale statistical computing in which we like to work on the code base to increase the processing speed so we can scale up our recent depression proof-of-concept to the all-by-all challenge.
In my view this meeting is only useful and a succes if we can actually improve the code with the available people in our session, i would not like hours of presentations on possible solutions at that meeting. This however requires thinking to be done prior to the meeting next month.
In the TC today, I like to have a discussion on our options , who can contribute, how to prepare for this meeting etc.
Hope you will all be active in moving this discussion forward.
