Feedback from March 2022 Meeting

Feedback from March’s monthly meeting:

1. Was another fairly quick meeting as there were only three of us. We discussed momentum on points and it was agreed we must not wait for a meeting to give feedback. Anyone who has their name in BOLD letters below for feedback, can now give feedback in this Signal group as soon as they have progress, as it is no longer a public open group.
2. KARL – Kubernetes as a MIOS cloud standard – Karl suggested an onlive VC with Richard at SITA. DANIE will check if Richard wants to do a Zoom or Jitsi session with the two of us.
3. ASLAM – Establishing a FOSS special interest group for GITOC – Aslam to speak to Nhlanhla (Deon Nel already expressed willingness to discuss with Nhlanhla, and Deon’s details were sent to Aslam) – pending feedback.
4. We also previously discussed some other issues (carried over) that are not for action right now but we’ll keep them on as discussion points:
4.1 Enterprise Architecture – MOHAMED raised importance of it determining direction and FOSS awareness legislation, MIOS, etc but often external parties are just contracted to complete it for Depts and Entities. Keu is on this Signal group and can be involved in this.
4.2 IT in schools – the fact that Delphi is still being taught, whilst Python is so popular and even presented by Microsoft says Karl. It is possibly something that can be taken up within the FOSS special interest group.
