I would like to propose doing another community event this fall in Berlin similar to Code more: Getting into Open Source Event
I have recently been talking with @oz1127 about doing a hackathon day/weekend. I would propose we also collaborate with Women Who Code (@sarah.c.koehler is also interested), Women Tech Makers (Hasan has already contacted them), Code Curious and Hasan is also in contact with CodeBar.
I would suggest we maybe use a EventBrite ticketing system rather than Meetup ( I think we can see a slight improvement on attendance/rsvp ratio.
Main point would be finidng a location that
- is large enough
- allows us over the weekend
- ideally fitting to our theme and open source. I would try with WikiMedia.
I would say we have a few projects (max 8) from or for underrepresented/marginalized groups with their own areas and also an open area.
We need to consider:
- a quiet room,
- accessibility access,
- food & drink
- kick off event - I think the rest should really be open coding time for everyone
- which code of conduct & how to handle this
It could be really cool to do this during HackOctober however I have to say I am personally pretty busy in October and it’s lead up so would preference November.
I think this could be really fun and look forward to hearing your feedback
