Subject: Re: [sca-bindings] Fwd: [opencsa-liaison] SCA Primer

I'd certainly support the production of material that provides more of a guide/tutorial style description of the various concepts and elements in the specs, in my experience the specs can be useful reference material but are not typically aimed at educating newcomers.  I'd be happy to review material pertaining to the bindings or assembly, however I can't commit time to produce the material at the moment.

Regards, Simon

Dear TC chairs,

I would like to take your input on an idea floated in today’s OpenCSA
Steering Committee meeting -

The idea is to develop a primer for the SCA technology, which would be
useful for its understanding and thereby potentially for its adoption.
Given the breadth and the depth of the technology, I think this will be
a non-trivial task. It may be ideal to have the primer authored by the
members of the TC(s). But in the event that the TCs cannot commit time
and effort for this activity, the Steering Committee would like to
explore the option of hiring someone to produce the primer and get it
reviewed by the TCs. There are various different open questions in this
regard such as how much it will cost to produce the primer, how much
budget the member section can realistically claim for this expenditure,
etc. We will try to get answers to these questions in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, I would like to seek your input on the following questions –

a>What do you think about the idea of producing an SCA primer under the
umbrella of OASIS?

b>Do you think that your TC may be interested in directly contributing
to the primer material? Would you like to ask the TC?

c>Would your TC be willing to work with an external agency for producing
and reviewing the material pertaining to your TC? How do you foresee the
dialogue with such an external agency happening (assuming you and the TC
agrees to work with the external agency)?

d>What would be the preferred timeline for undertaking the primer activity?

Best wishes,
