The second of the broken cameras is connected Herbert of you're able to test.
06:20
Bertl_oO
we have broken cameras?
06:20
RexOrMatrix[m]
Looks like similar symptoms. No blue LED
06:21
RexOrMatrix[m]
The two from FOSSDEM. There was Maxime's that you and I tried the other day. Then there's ABCP Proto (which was the remote dark box camera)
06:25
Bertl_oO
it probably requires a manual start (i.e. auto start scripts disabled)
06:28
RexOrMatrix[m]
Sorted, thanks.
06:28
Bertl_oO
no problem
06:33
Bertl_oO

hi BAndiT1983 I will be waiting for that.
15:48
sergio__[m]
It is mentioned that we have to complete either one task from given two. what exactly is the problem statement of the first one? I have build visualizer and tried to understand firmware what's next?
15:49
Bertl_oO
challenge task description has been updated
15:50
sergio__[m]
now we have to do both :)
15:52
sergio__[m]
BAndiT1983: for task 2 do we have to commit changes to the firmware.

hi sergio, there was a mistake in the task description, just copy and paste from old challenge task
18:17
BAndiT1983
there are 2 mandatory tasks and one as bonus for additional points
18:17
BAndiT1983
you have to fork the axiom remote repo and do you changes, afterwards we will look at what you've committed for evaluation
18:20
BAndiT1983
*your
18:20
BAndiT1983
will add output example now

BAndiT1983: I am getting same output \m/ so does that mean task 1 is done?
19:12
sergio__[m]
and why drawimage() description is given in task1.?
19:14
max_bxl
left the channel
19:14
BAndiT1983
sergio__[m]: output is only a part of the task, it's more important to understand the code
19:14
BAndiT1983
DrawImage() is described there, to give people some background of the challenge task
19:16
sergio__[m]
> DrawImage() is described there, to give people some background of the challenge task
19:16
sergio__[m]
background for step2?
19:16
BAndiT1983
overall background, as the goal of the task is to add DrawIcon() to reduce size of used images
19:16
BAndiT1983
i can move the description further up, if it's confusing
19:18
sergio__[m]
yes probably that will be great for other new contributors!!!
19:20
BAndiT1983
done

hey BAndiT1983 I was curious how you guys check everytime someone commits in axiom remote as it runs on board and you check commits on ur machine?
19:27
sergio__[m]
does these changes also reflect in visualizer?
19:29
BAndiT1983
UI changes are visible in the visualizer, of course we also have the boards there for real tests, hope that there be a remote connection to the factory hub, so students can test their firmware and control the board
19:30
BAndiT1983
other than that, we do code review
19:32
sergio__[m]
hmm ð¤ got it!!!
19:33
sergio__[m]
I think for step2 I will have to read a little more about remote codebase!!
19:33
BAndiT1983
yep, that is rather important, you can also try to build it with XC32, which is really important for axiom remote development
19:34
sergio__[m]
are there any other documentations that I missed about codebase structure and all?
19:34
BAndiT1983
if you have questions, then just ask, logs would also help other students
19:34
sergio__[m]
probably in lab or site?
19:34
BAndiT1983
rather few at the moment
19:35
BAndiT1983
simple schematic is there and some notes in the lab
19:35
BAndiT1983
will try to provide more, but have to gather materials to structure it

thanks for that!!!
19:36
sergio__[m]
do new comers also contact you from other platforms other than irc?
19:38
BAndiT1983
usually also by email

sergio__[m]
this will be helpful.
19:43
sergio__[m]
are remote visualizer and remote firmware visualizer same? are u going to remove remote visualizer from repo?
19:44
BAndiT1983
AXIOM_Remote_Visualizer is for C++ firmware, other ones will be moved to archive, let me check if i can do it now quickly
19:50
sergio__[m]
do all contributors do all experiment on Dev branch and only add the required code in master which will run actually on?
19:51
sergio__[m]
as Master was last updated in July 19.
19:52
sergio__[m]
hola @metal_dent:matrix.org !!!
19:53
BAndiT1983
master is only used for stable releases, so dev is the way to go, as it has newer state, so i expect all the changes in the dev branch usually

BAndiT1983: it's going great! I'll start working on the tasks asap now that my sem exams are over
19:55
BAndiT1983
great to hear that
19:55
BAndiT1983
hope your exams went well
19:56
BAndiT1983
sergio__[m]: any question about that?
19:57
metal_dent[m]
Btw I just checked out the updated description of the drawicon task, so we need to implement that in the visualizer and send in a patch, right?
19:58
metal_dent[m]
> hope your exams went well
19:58
metal_dent[m]
Yeah great, thanks :)
19:58
BAndiT1983

metal_dent[m]: the logo should be attached to the challenge task, it's 320x240 to represent correct display size and how the logo is usually positioned, see also the visualizer output
21:24
BAndiT1983
starting page is also visible in the sample screenshot, the one with 6 black/white buttons
