Facilitator Guide

  • Propose or claim a topic in the Proposed Topics table above
  • You will be asked to introduce your topic with a brief summary (minute or less) during the kick off meeting

Contributor Resources

Goal of this checklist is to enable leaders of specific issues to be able to collect resources for those interested in contributing; aiming to provide a shared knowledge base before beginning the work together.  While optional, if you're facilitating a topic we recommend you provide these resources to attendees ahead of time:

  • Prepare zoom link or slack room link that will be used for contributors to gather
  • Prepare short list of languages the work will be coded in
  • Prepare list of any tutorials a contributor can complete to familiarize themselves with the work ahead
  • If similar work has occurred in other repositories please include links to those repositories as well
