SC committee update
last meeting was cancelled, so no update.
  • SC maintains project updates - Send updates to Hanming and Mary and we'll update the document
    • Mary and Hanming will collect updates and then send the update to Wendy to update the document.
    • Mary and Hanming will aggregate the updates and create a summary for Wendy - the shorter the better!
  • Version control in general is being discussed within the SC - We'll update the group when finalized
  • PhUSE - ASA collaboration meeting: next meeting is on Friday
Crowd-sourcing an interactive Safety Review Tool
  • Next step - Mat, Steve, Mary will meet to think about next steps, some momentum for R Shiny
  • People are interested in the interactive tool in general and may be more interested in open source tools such R Shiny. Spotfire is not open source, and only one person is interested in trying out Spotfire templates. Socializing the deliverable is still the goal but may not be the focus for this year.
  • "Something Big" education should be the focus and the interactive tools might be later.
    • Brenda - Mary's supervisor is creating a video for the SDE in July 13th - it is the first step for "something big" education, which will be published on PhUSE deliverable catalog.
      • Mary/Jared will send the video to Wendy and Wendy will post it on PhUSE website.
      • We may or may not need to edit the video. Is it possible to document the steps for creating a video like this one?
Document Versioning
  • We need to come out a guideline for identifying files that we do not need or think that it is not value anymore.
  • We could archive old ones, move them to wiki site and create a pointer in repo to point to the wiki site
  • Wendy is facilitating the discussion on document version control; next meeting is on 7/28;
  • So far it is all about documents; how about codes?
  • Repo project team to draft a proposal then present to the team to be discussed.
PhUSE annual conference
  • CSS WG club - it is still under discussion
  • Wendy to look into whether there are anyone from our WG who will be attending the conference.

    • Version 1.1 FDA contributed white paper has been finalized and uploaded to the Deliverable Catalog, we'll update links once we know the exact format of the document name
    • Need to remind JumpStart reps that they were going to tell us which scripts are used more than others; we got back from the rep: they are equal.

    • Github has a size limit - running into data that is bigger than the limit
    • We need to talk about the "dirty data" in the future meeting; we may not clean the CDISC data but we need to be able to simulate the "dirty data" so that we could demo the tools to identify the "dirty data"
Action items
  • Hanming to send an announcement to the WG listbox for the PhUSE EU/CSS materials: it is already concluded and not enough people to sign up so it did not happen for our working group.
