SFH Coop Update and Admin - by Max

Start

  • welcome to country

  • apologies (numerous due to easter and daylights savings time changes, need to do a poll for new best times), slight re-order, and will be reading through some notes from others who couldn't make it

Solutions for Humanity Coop Updates

  • We have a new full member of the coop, Sanee Salim ... has been with us for some time, and has been doing wonderfully with the DS team ... he is the first person to formally apply and go through a formal loomio voting process, which is evolving as we formalise our structures and processes with the coop ... and, as our project team is consolidating with more ongoing and consistent core members staying active and contributing to the coop and it's projects, more contributors would start to become eligible and be able to apply as well - which is GREAT !!!

  • Outgoing member is Julien who resigned from being active, but will support from the sidelines.

Admin

  • isgood.ai Pty Ltd has received it's annual ASIC company statement for $273, which is payable by 27 May 2021.

DS Update - by @Sanee Salim and @Murtadha

Some amazing work has been done this month and we have deployed our working code to AWS. It is yet to be tested and checked in different ways. In this month we did the following:

  • AWS structure was updated and implemented accordingly

  • Databases were validated and populated all the required tables

  • Connecting to the database using a very secure path was successful

  • A flask application was created and integrated with Github and AWS

  • Jump boxes were created and elastic IPs were associated with them to access the Database

In the coming weeks, we will pursue the following.

  • Creating a flow diagram highlighting the flow of functions

  • A new script will be created to add more indicators to the database

  • Testing the global_related table and the strengths between them

  • Flask app will be made production-ready

  • Testing the app on AWS and on Local Machine

The aim is to verify the results that we return in the next 2 weeks.


Meeting with Gareth and Scott later this week ....

Founder Update - by Max

WOW ... end of Q1 .... which was only sort of a half quarter, as we we're semi-closed over the festivus period, and has taken a fair bit for everyone to get going after the 2020 ... that no one should have had !!!!!

We are behind on product, for where we had hoped to be .... plenty of work, learning and some great teamwork happening.

... but, we are behind.

...... but, so much of it is OH SO CLOSE now .... just a bit more to get that initial beta release deployed, and serious funding/partnership conversations progressed.


There's been a couple of let downs:

  1. Where we haven't seen these positives is ironically in "Team Success" ... while a few have been getting active with the DS docs, the survey, etc as discussed .... and the things noted as concerns for us to improve, are exactly the things that Team Success is supposed to be working on improving !!! It is ironic, and is unfair that Team Success aren't all active on Team Success.

  2. There's a few semi-active lurkers, who aren't putting in and supporting the others getting things done This is part and parcel of our structure, and we depend on each other to get things done. It isn't fair on others, which means we'll be moving to offboard those who aren't playing fair.


馃帀 IN THE END ... what we're doing is all about people
... and people joining together to do good in the world 鉂わ笍

We have such wonderful people who are active ... the comms and growth team gaining process and momentum .... platform DS, API forming up, and the webapp starting to get connected up ... and active advisors helping review and get ready the work that has been getting done.

NOT BAD .... considering much of this output has happened just in 2021, and a big chunk of that was during our 2020-recovery period.

-->> Therefor ... I reckon we are seeing some great teamwork .... people really pulling together .... AND all things considered, we may be behind, but we've done pretty damned good since the start of the year.

馃憠 Be PROUD of your achievements

Keep up the good work ... well done all who have contributed 锘筐煓傦豢

Events Channel

Keep an eye on the #events-training channel in Slack for interesting things coming up .... and, we'll have a list of all interesting stuff on our website sometime in the not too distant future also ... as some things are starting to happen IRL again, and a few more "normal" events are returning.
