This was not exactly the first Open IRC meeting, but we'll let the meeting at the end of the March 2012 bootcamp stand as such.

Next Steps

  2. Cleaning up Site/Wiki

      • persons and
      • projects
    • We need a coordinator for this
    • Dave Lester volunteered to help

  3. Contacting/Networking
    • We need 1 (one) *nice* message!
    • DARIAH, Christiane Fritze
      • Deposit tools at DARIAH
        • Their problem is community building, #bootcamp
        • Suggest bootcamps are our gratification for our contribution

  6. Funding (Posibilities II)

  7. How do we purpose #bootcamp to scholars and institutions
    • Define a clear challenge
    • Use IRC to plan bootcamps better

    • Each bootcamp focuses on 1 (one) microservice
    • Use tickets on GitHub
    • Backlog stories on GitHub
    • Organize talks and lectures on 1 of the tools in actual research cases
