On the Day

Format and Timings

Interest Groups

Any contribution that can be made is welcome, whether it's a minor edit to a wiki page or a bugfix. However, it may be profitable to run a number of discussion groups in the morning around areas of interest. These discussion groups can then set up work to be accomplished in the afternoon.

  • 10:00 - 11:00 Interest groups meet (google hangout?), make decisions and assign tasks
  • 11:00 - 13:00 Morning Contributions
  • 14:00 - 16:00 Afternoon Contributions
  • 16:00 - 16:30 Interest groups wrap-up and reporting.

Independent Members

If contributors have particular projects they want to work on, then there's no need to join an Interest Group.

Interest Groups

Group 1: Community Training Course

This interest group is concerned with the wiki page at http://wiki.eprints.org/w/EPrints_Training_Course.
