Scope & Objectives

The Developer Onboarding Working Group will:

Multiple teams have gone through the challenges of onboarding developers. This working group will draw on those efforts to create a body of resources for this task. To that end, the group may work on some of the following, or come up with other ideas:

To achieve these goals, this working group should include supervisors who have faced the challenge of developer onboarding as well as senior developers on whose shoulders this task has fallen in the past; new developers could also help significantly in the identification of pain points. And as always, the group will welcome anyone who thinks this work is important and is willing to help complete it. 

Deliverables & Timeframe

The deliverable will be online documentation and resources to facilitate onboarding a development team member, and maintenance plans for these resources. These will be discoverable from the Samvera wiki.

The group will begin work in March 2022, and scope the timeframe for this work.

Meeting Times & Communication Channels

On the agenda of the first meeting, which will be scheduled following a doodle poll made available to interested community members, will be the decision about meeting frequency and meeting schedule. The group will use the existing Samvera communication channels such as mailing lists and slack channels.
