Cross Community Hackathon

Hi people, I’m going to present a project in the Hackathon and I’d like to know if it’s gonna be possible to show some slides to the people there.
Are we expected to do that or the presentation of the project is going to be an informal talk?

@marimeireles hi, yes the space has a projector we will use. The project intros will be quick 5–7 minutes and you can show slides, or show the website, or show the actual software. :slight_smile:

(Right @jessica0greene @sarah.c.koehler @oz1127 ?)

@jan & @marimeireles It was not explicitely mentioned in the email from ThoughtWorks but I am pretty sure we will have a projector. laptops should also be no issue :wink:


Right, it just said it in the initial requirements list from Alma, sorry. :slight_smile:

Also unfortunately Anika (Diversity Tickets) had to cancel because there is a date conflict.

I also asked Anika about the childcare requirements just so that we have it for next time, added it to the document and just for reference here:

Anika from Diversity Tickets said: A child-friendly play corner would be great (doesn’t have to be an extra room) and a means for diaper change. Ideally the corner is somewhere where it’s not superloud and not in the middle of the room. She also said she could help designing that for next time.

Hi @marimeireles can you message me your email and what project you are presenting I have some final information to share :slight_smile:

@jan I dont see how to do this on the open collective can you help me :see_no_evil:

Thank you!

Also sent you a Signal message with the email it shows to me, but just as info for others too:

On the event page between the map and the attendee list, below the “48 people going” there are 3 links, one saying “Send email” :slight_smile:

Sent out a last tweet for tomorrow:

Email sent to all the attendees and we started slides here:

@oz1127 and @jan if you have time, it would be great if you could have a look, especially at the slides about Turkish Tech and OSD.
@oz1127 I assumed you wanted to add your own content, so for now it is mainly a placeholder slide, just with the header image from meetup.

Here is a slide about Turkish Tech Berlin

Asked for permissions to change the slides.
Otherwise feel free to add this, change colors&font optionally to match the scheme.

My bus was delayed so I am there circa 4 minutes past 9 just FYI. Once we’re in to ThoughtWorks Sarah and I will go get the cakes. Jan and Hasan can you help set up the tables.

We couldn’t get a bell. But I brought a second laptop which we can have a small program running on to count and display contributions on. Maybe something already exists for this, or we write a quick script for it.

As we discussed that we would like to meet to discuss the event and the future of OSD, I created a poll below with all dates in the next weeks:

  • Oct 22nd
  • Oct 23rd
  • Oct 24th
  • Oct 25th
  • Oct 28th
  • Oct 29th
  • Oct 30th
  • Oct 31st
  • Nov 1st
  • Nov 4th
  • Nov 5th
  • Nov 6th
  • Nov 7th
  • Nov 8th
  • Nov 11th
  • Nov 12th
  • Nov 13th
  • Nov 14th
  • Nov 15th

I guess it would have to be after work (meeting between 6 and 7pm), because our offices are quite far away when I remember correctly.

Please enter your availability, @jessica0greene, @jan, @oz1127 and @camilasan


Thanks for setting that up Sarah seems it should be the 29th October then :grinning:

Great, I am happy we found something.
Any ideas for a location that works for everyone?
I work in Prenzlauer Berg and live in Mariendorf.
@jessica0greene is in Neukölln.
What about you, @jan and @oz1127?

I would recommend somewhere on the u6 near Schönenberg. From what I know this intersects all our area’s

I’m in Schöneberg on U7, stuff on the U6 is fine for me for sure. Hasan?

U7 is even better for me! So Mehringdam basically, if anyone knows a place there. There is plenty along Bergmanstrasse, perhaps we eat together?

I could recommend Knofi on Bergmannstraße, any other ideas? If we find something, I could reserve October 29 for 4 ppl, and do we say 19:00 (or 18:00, whatever works).

(Btw to really make it obvious we are shutting down the meetup group and it will be closed on the 25th, this Friday, I also created an event for the shutdown/move on Meetup itself: )


Also @sarah.c.koehler since you wrote “discussing the future of OSD” above, I would say there we should mainly focus on what we do in Berlin, as we have a bunch of people elsewhere and for that we should probably do a separate call at some stage. :slight_smile:
