OpenCon community calls give a chance for you to learn what's happening in open research and education around the world, share what you're doing and find collaborators and opportunities.
This May, we invite you to join an experiment! We all have that one item on our to-do list for our open project that just won’t budge. We know it’s important, maybe the most important thing we could be doing, but it’s just been sitting there and something is stopping us doing it (ahem... Netflix, or maybe it’s just a bit scary). On our May community call, a special 2 hour call, we invite you to join us and others in ticking that task off the list.
The call will work differently to our normal community calls, but it’ll still be a fun, lively way to connect with the community. It’ll start will a quick chance for those on the call to share what their project is, and briefly what they want to tick off. Then, we’ll have time to get to work (with access to chat with others on the call). After a working stint, we’ll briefly come back to provide a chance to give updates and ask for feedback, then it’s back to work. At the end of the call, we’ll celebrate our joint efforts regardless of their success.
You can find all the proposed agendas and minutes from the community calls in one place, right here. The best way to share this link is with: http://bit.ly/OpenConCommunityCalls
