The meeting agenda page lists previous and upcoming events. Generally one future meeting is listed, as well as all previous meetings. There is a link to the December 13 meeting now, and links for the January 2019 meetings will go up right after the December meeting concludes.
I hope this helps!
It does indeed, thank you
Reminder: Developer meeting 13 December 2018, 13:00 UTC
I am very aware that this time does not work for everyone. I am collecting input for an additional alternative time for these meetings, either holding two meetings per month or rotating between the two times. Please feel free to reply here or speak up in the meeting (or add notes to one of the etherpad pages for upcoming meetings).
Do we have any data on what time-zones Moodle developers inhabit?
Here is one thing you could try: Git commit comments contain a time-zone. We could look at all the different people who have committed code to Moodle core, or any Moodle plugin, and get some time-zone data from that.
Generally, for me, the current time of day is great. However, 13:00 to 14:00 on a Thursday just happens to be a time I have a regular commitment. Perhaps the day of the week would vary, but my guess would be that mid-weed days (Tues, Weds, Thurs) are likely to work better than Mon or Fri, because of public holidays and people who work part-time.
Checking git commits is a clever idea, but just because someone is active on git during a specific time of day, that doesn't necessarily mean it's a good time for them to attend a meeting. You are a perfect example of this. There are also people who commit code at all hours, but would really only be able to attend a meeting when those around them are awake (or their offices are open or whatever). So I'd like to do some kind of survey with enough lead time to give everyone a chance to participate. I've been asked not to add or change meetings until we've run this one a couple more times, so I'll start polling people after the start of the new year.
As always, community input is more than welcome.
I was not actually thinking of using the time of the commit, but now you mention it, it would be interesting to see what it showed. I was thinking just that the way the time is stored in the commit comment includes the time-zone, so we could just get a distribution of 'active' Moodle developers by time zone. I was not in any way suggesting that that it was the only thing we should look at, just that it is something that is relatively easy to calculate, so we might as well. However, I have not had half an hour to play with doing it yet.

What would you like to discuss? Please feel free to edit the agenda!
I listened to the recording for the April 11 meeting and Elizabeth you mentioned there would be a survey link in the meeting minutes and I do not see it currently at https://devpad.moodle.org/p/MoodleDevCommunity-04-2019
Would love to try to find time that more people can attend.
