This forum is intended for developers and users of AAVSO software (incuding scripts and spreadsheets) to collaborate and communicate. Some AAVSO software can be found here: http://www.aavso.org/software-directory
Specific uses for the forum are:
- For AAVSO to disseminate information to developers regarding impending download file format or database schema changes. This may also prompt useful feedback for consideration by AAVSO. This is definitely a case of N heads being better than M, where N > M.
- Discussion of better ways to use existing resources, e.g. suggestions by Chris Watson re: how to do more comprehensive VSX searches.
- Proposal and discussion of useful additional resources (e.g. web services) or project ideas.
- Learning from each other's mistakes and successes.
- Generally getting out of our "silos".
This list is by no means exhaustive.
