Summary of activities:
- CI pipeline improvements and fixes (as part of a mentorship project)
- Added base skeleton for VSCode extension (as part of a mentorship project)
- Improving Prometheus integration
- Overview and decrease the issue backlog.

Attila Klenik – I think the plan to create developer docs to lower the barrier to entry for project contribution is a great idea. Once that documentation is ready, I'd recommend that we schedule a workshop to walk people through th"at and get people up and running. Workshops get hundreds of people signing up for them and this will help introduce Caliper to many new people. If you'd like to talk up scheduling and promoting that, let me know.
And I've had conversations recently with other people doing blockchain performance related work and I think there's an opportunity here to combine efforts and collaborate. In particular, people involved with the Performance and Scale WG are working on the Performance Sandbox lab and I also spoke to a PhD candidate who is working on a blockchain benchmarking framework called Diablo. If there's interest in collaborating with them, I'm happy to make introductions.

Yes, I plan on joining the PSWG call next week to see what they are up to (I was absent lately since I just finished my PhD, also in the DLT performance topic ). It would be nice to avoid effort duplication among tools and cooperate as much as possible.

Attila Klenik – Great, I'm glad to hear you're interested in exploring cooperating with the PSWG. I'll connect you to Haris and Sam from the group over email since I'm not 100% of their plans for future calls. I've been talking to them about the structure of the group and looking at maybe changing things to allow them to collaborate more with other projects. We haven't decided what's best yet and getting your input would be helpful.
