    Welcome to the HSLynk (Human Services Lynk) open source data warehouse public chat!

    We plan to have the 2017 v1.2 HUD HMIS Annual Performance Report (APR) available within HSLynk within a month. Here is the HUD site for the report: https://www.hudexchange.info/resource/4696/hmis-programming-specifications/ . We will make a Sage export for upload, as well a pdf export. APIs will be provided for both sets of functionality. After that, we will finish up the AHAR LSA.

    hey are you all going to be at naeh next week?

    @kiadso Sorry for the late response. I think I need to change how I get notified for this channel. We plan to go to NAEH next year. This year, we are presenting at the Florida Coalition for the Homeless' Institute on Nov 2. http://fchonline.org/fihsh . Our topic is "An Open Source Statewide Data Warehouse: Existing Software, Necessary Functionality, and Required Policies" . So what are you guys working on? Curious to learn more. reportingnotes.com is excellent, and I shared it with our reporting programmers!

    Hi Eric- aaa! I am so glad to hear back. Your presentation sounds great- I hope it will be published online after the fact? I am at genelledenzin at cohhio dot org- please email me because I would really like to talk with you about what we're doing and find out more about what you're doing. !! So far it sounds like the main difference in my aims and yours is that you're doing a statewide data warehouse and I am just aiming at moving all our custom reporting out to R Shiny for the Ohio Balance of State CoC. I suppose we're not hostile to the idea of opening it up to other Ohio CoCs, but that's just not the thought currently.

    Excellent, we have a user that is asking us to create a Hive connector to R Shiny. Maybe using "implyr". Currently, we connect Hive/Impala to Tableau and Looker, and also there's regular ODBC. But an R connector would be great for Data Scientists. Well, feel free to join our project. We are open source, and looking for people to collaborate with.

    btw, how we have the warehouse structured, is as "project groups". A project group is a collection of one or more HMIS or non-HMIS projects. So you can add and subtract new projects to your set of data as you wish. Also, you can have two or more separate project groups that can selective share data with each other.

    Hi Eric! Thanks for sending this. I look forward to talking more. We have a meeting this morning at 10, but it looks like maybe this afternoon will work for us. I think. Amanda's not in yet so I don't know for sure, but are you available later today?
    Eric Jahn
    @eric-jahn
    @kiadso, yes, let's discuss Friday! I sent you an email to arrange a time.

    HSLynk now supports the OAuth 2.0 client credentials grant for app access without a human login. Documentation updated at: https://api.hslynk.com/?urls.primaryName=Authorization%20Service%20Api#/default/POST_token

    HSLynk, in addition to this chat, has a web/email forum now for the public! https://groups.google.com/a/hslynk.com/forum/#!forum/community

    hey I wonder if the APR validations page (https://github.com/servinglynk/hslynk-open-source-docs/wiki/APR_Unit_Testing_FY2020) would be more useful with the shorter naming convention as well? Like keep the English, then in a second column, if I had for instance: Q8b.5c + Q8b.5d + Q8b.5e + Q8b.5f = Q8b.5b.

    I'm getting that naming convention from the APR specs, all the question tables have the row numbers and column letters like Excel has. I know if I was coding off of this list, I'd want a more exact way to find what is being compared.

    Genelle, for that issue 549 documentation, https://github.com/servinglynk/hslynk-open-source-docs/wiki/HSLynk-PostgreSQL-operational-database-schema-locations-and-documentation has listings of all our current warehouse fields. I changed the link in issue 549 to point to this. But what 549 is asking for is a little different.
    I think the intent of 549 is a single list of data elements, generated from the warehouse, but adding some additional explanatory fields.
    Regarding the APR validations page, yes, the shorter element ID version would be easier for programmers.

    I just added this wiki page explaining how to locate HMIS data elements in the warehouse: https://groups.google.com/a/hslynk.com/d/msg/community/pnzLW6CIlbE/iVP3auy_DwAJ .

    Gitter seems kind of boring. I'm wondering if a mastodon server would be more fun, as a public chat forum?
    Eric Jahn
    @eric-jahn
    Mastodon would have embedded media and such.
    Genelle Denzin
    @kiadso
    Maybe it's only boring because it's only ever you or me posting! lol :) (mastodon is fine with me)
    Eric Jahn
    @eric-jahn
    Okay, I'll look into Mastodon. Should be easy.
