Proposal: World MoveIt Day 2020 Next Month?

Hi all,

As we’re all in varying levels of stay at home orders, we thought it would be a good time to have our 5th annual World MoveIt Day event. We won’t have any physical locations this time, but that’s can’t stop us roboticists from hacking. We’ll collaborate remotely as usual through video conferencing, IRC, and most importantly Github.

We will discuss this further at tomorrow’s MoveIt Manipulation WG Meeting but please leave your thoughts below. For clarity, the event is not confirmed yet.

@mmoll suggested we have the event on June 1st so that it coincides with the start of this years Google Summer of Code program, and our summer MoveIt “interns” can meet the community.

Should be fun!

I love it!

I believe we agreed on June 2nd in yesterday’s meeting to avoid Pentecost?

Is PickNik going to make an official announcement with nice logos? :slight_smile:

Yes, we had agreed on June 2nd.

Let me know when y’all create a landing page for the event. Open Robotics would be more than happy to be your hype man.
