|elakdawalla||You mean I can't just come here and say "it sure would be nice if someone developed X" and expect it to just happen!?||17:43:00|
|cmillion||Yes. It's radical!||17:44:30|
|cmillion||It also means that you don't generally have to ask permission to do something. (But you might have to ask for forgiveness.)||17:47:01|
|arosp||Well one cal always ask for help, though.||17:49:04|
|arosp||E.g. if I think something is worth doing and I can't do it alone "can anyone help me form a team ?"||17:49:31|
|arosp||But yes, if I do I need to push for it||17:50:18|
|Randy Hughes-King||Its my hope to grow into Python and SQL, made that life choice, and be of help where I can, in time. I learned of OP from elakdawalla after her announcement at the Planetary Society.||17:52:44|
|elakdawalla||Yes and as soon as I have time to actually see projects through to completion, I will definitely be in here asking for coding help, because I don't currently know a programming language.||17:53:42|
|elakdawalla||However, I am currently very nearly done developing a Teachable course on the very basics of image processing using Photoshop or GIMP. It'll be posted sometime in the next month. It'll be a good onboard for people brand new to the idea of images as data.||17:54:21|
|cmillion||A lot of folks here have self-nominated as wiling to help with programming and data processing issues. #open-planetary-tools:matrix.org and #open-planetary-conda:matrix.org are good places for those questions. Although maybe we should start a channel more specifically for Python and other programming questions.||17:59:42|
In reply to@_slack_openplanetary_U04UUMGJ7:matrix.orgYou may want to turn off the bot that echos all the commit messages and stuff the PlanetaryPy repos. I’m not sure if people like that or if it scares them away.
In reply to@_slack_openplanetary_U5V8N9WMV:matrix.orgyeah, either that, or just create a general Python channel?
In reply to@_slack_openplanetary_U04UUMGJ7:matrix.orgI propose that the #open-planetary-conda:matrix.org channel should be rescoped / rebranded for this.
In reply to@_slack_openplanetary_U0554HVQA:matrix.orgeh? conda isn't python only at all?
In reply to@_slack_openplanetary_U04UUMGJ7:matrix.orgi agree that there are several things widely overlapping... but there are many technical conda issues that are quite far way from being python related.
In reply to@_slack_openplanetary_U04UUMGJ7:matrix.orgI guess we could have a Python&Conda channel though as long as it's clear from the channel name that it deals with both.
In reply to@_slack_openplanetary_U04UUMGJ7:matrix.orgOk. I retract my proposal.

In reply to@_slack_openplanetary_U0554HVQA:matrix.orgThere may still be value in a generic #python channel, and make planetarypy more about that specific project, now that it really is a thing?
In reply to@_slack_openplanetary_U5V8N9WMV:matrix.orgI think so, especially because newcomers wouldn't know what planetarypy means
In reply to@_slack_openplanetary_U04UUMGJ7:matrix.orgok created. and i refer to the conda channel as related in the description.
|michaelaye||Note @room that we have a new #python channel focusing on everything snakey around planetary science. Related channels are #planetarypy where developers currently work on creating stable common Python packages for planetary science, and #open-planetary-conda:matrix.org to discuss environment installations and package creation issues.||18:20:59|

In reply to@_slack_openplanetary_U04UUMGJ7:matrix.orgtell everyone that this is the one place to discuss in near real-time any planetary science related Python issues. For a wider, non-Slack bound and non-urgent discussion, we recommend our public forum where we have Python topics as well: https://forum.openplanetary.org/c/programming-and-workflows/programming/6
