    • We’re still trying out DevSpace. Big question for us is how to get the helm charts we need, and also connecting to vault

    • Tried tutor on my machine again (see topics/demos), no dice


  • Each challenge should have a follow up action.

    • Have not been able to work much on tutor b/c Content Libraries is taking priority currently

  • 30 universities in Egypt are using @Emad Rad and friends' work!

  • @Rebecca Graber (Deactivated) continued incremental improvements on devstack and documentation. We now also get devstack issues automatically on our board

Suggested Action Items

Last Time:

@Kyle McCormick try Colima
(FYI OrbStack is still in 2U vendor review)
(And 2U is trying to kick off vendor review for Colima also)
@Rebecca Graber (Deactivated) @Jeremy Bowman (Deactivated) Consider making the devstack channel public
Becca to announce in the 2u channel that there’s an openedx channel that they should use for non-private issues
@Rebecca Graber (Deactivated) to check Tutor on ARM again-again (userid thing is fixed)
