J's Report

  • Did
    • Drafted blog post about Sprint 1 and 2
    • DEV-23: Test Nodejs then Johnny-Five in chiptainer environment to determine if we want to use chiptainer approach - finished research, ready to begin testing
  • Will do
    • Publish blog post about Sprint 1 and 2
    • Get access to mailing list account
    • DEV-23: Test Nodejs then Johnny-Five in chiptainer enviroment to determine if we want to use chiptainer approach - publish research and conduct first round of testing (get one of the Next Thing Computing examples running)
    • DEV-25: Update Fritzing docs to migrate from CHIP to CHIP Pro (EagleCad?) - create an account for Circuit Maker and start reviewing the stub Holoseat project
    • DEV-26: Determine wiring to power CHIP Pro from Feather - document initial research
    • DEV-27: Determine wiring to provide I2C between CHIP Pro and Feather - document initial research
    • BIZ-07: Submit paperwork to adjust ownership to the appropriate entities - meet with Bryan and get the last internal paperwork signed
  • Blocked?
    • not sure yet; feel like I am biting off more than I can finish; note, will be on travel next week

Bryan's Report

  • Did
    • DEV-25: Update Fritzing docs to migrate from CHIP to CHIP Pro (EagleCad?) - investigated Fritzing, KiCad, EagleCad, and Altium Circuit Maker; EagleCad is too expensive, Fritzing doesn't have the libraries we need for anything but AdaFruit (plus it has an Arduino focus, so probably time to move on anyway; and saw several posts about people wishing they had moved on earlier due to how it outputs board designs), KiCad does not have the library support we need, and finally Circuit Maker is pretty good including libraries we need from Adafruit and Sparkfun (does not have CHIP Pro, but it can import Eagle files and there is an Eagle import tool) plus forums are active and responsive (two concerns: must be online to use it and it is Windows only, but there is a well documented procedure to get it to run on WINE) - note there is a license model for Circuit Maker for OSHW; bottom line suggests we move to Circuit Maker
    • J - let's got with Circuit Maker then
  • Will do
    • DEV-25: Update Fritzing docs to migrate from CHIP to CHIP Pro (EagleCad?) - continue working with Circuit Maker to get parts sorted out and an initial project for Holoseat
  • Blocked?
    • hand injury and have a work deadline this week
