Hi, I'm on Ubuntu 18.10 and I've successfully installed nest to `/usr`.
I'm interested in writing my own synapse models and found these instructions for getting started: https://nest.github.io/nest-simulator/extension_modules
The configuration step, `cmake -Dwith-nest=/usr/bin/nest-config ../MyModule` works fine. However, when I ran `make` I received the following compiler error:
~/Projects/NEST/MyModule/mymodule.cpp: In member function ‘virtual void mynest::MyModule::init(SLIInterpreter*)’:
~/Projects/NEST/MyModule/mymodule.cpp:128:24: error: no matching function for call to ‘nest::ModelManager::register_connection_model<mynest::DropOddSpikeConnection<nest::TargetIdentifierPtrRport> >(const char )’

make: *** [Makefile:152: all] Error 2
I am not sure how to deal with this, and any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
We are going to have a NEST issue review VC tomorrow morning (Friday 10 Jan 10-13 CET) in the usual VC room for developer VCs (https://github.com/nest/nest-simulator/wiki/Connection-Details). The main aim is to review open issues in preparation of the NEST 3 merge and (eventually) release.
Excuse the short notice, still booting up for 2020.

Dear NEST Users & Developers! Happy new year 2020!
I would like to invite you to this years first Open NEST Developer Video

As usual the agenda for this meeting is also available online, see
For details how to log in see below.
* Review of NEST User Mailing List
* Review of open Github Pull Request
* Review of open Github Issues
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
We use a virtual conference room provided by DFN (Deutsches Forschungsnetz).
You can use the web client to connect. We however encourage everyone to
use a headset for better audio quality or even a proper video
conferencing system (see below) or software when available.
* Visit https://conf.dfn.de/webapp/conference/97938800
* Enter your name and allow your browser to use camera and microphone
* The conference does not need a PIN to join, just click join and you're in.
In case you see a dfnconf logo and the phrase "Auf den
Meetingveranstalter warten", just be patient, the meeting host needs to
join first (a voice will tell you).
How to log in with a video conferencing system, depends on you VC system
- Using the H.323 protocol (eg Polycom): vc.dfn.net##97938800 or
- Using the SIP protocol:email@example.com
- By telephone: +49-30-200-97938800
For those who do not have a video conference system or suitable
software, Polycom provides a pretty good free app for iOS and Android,
so you can join from your tablet (Polycom RealPresence Mobile, available
from AppStore/PlayStore). Note that firewalls may interfere with
videoconferencing in various and sometimes confusing ways.
