srichtersure, but the idea is that people learn by doing00:00
srichterso you sit with one of us and suck up as much as you can00:00
th1aWe wouldn't randomly assign you a bug to fix and sit you in the corner ;-)00:01
th1aPerhaps if you came with specific issues, you could sit with a developer and work through them together.00:02
tiredbonesth1a, I don't have specific issues, I'm try to figure out the big picture and hoe it fix together, how everthing is tided together.00:04

dwelshProblem is State concerns regarding student confidentiality00:49
dwelshRob had wanted to do a CanDo type effort, but state didn't want liability00:49
th1aI see.00:49
dwelshirony is that our system and other systems are comfortable with CanDo00:50
dwelshmaybe our grassroots effort will either allay their fears00:50
th1aI don't understand these people.00:50
dwelshor they'll continue to allow our effort as a school system-based initiative00:50
srichteras long as they give you access to the API you could care less :-)00:50
dwelshRob had the good term:  Comptencies -- the Unauthorized Mandate!!!00:51
th1aIt isn't like they'd be hiring some guys who learned PHP out of a book.  They don't think Zope Corp can create a secure site?00:51
