So @bastianalbers and I went to talk to the public library a few weeks ago, and they offered their space to a workshop run by us (after much explaining what we do and what they do). This is great, as it allows us to actually reach people outside our comfort zone (English-Speaking meetup users, to put it bluntly) and engage with our neighbors in a meaningful way.
We’d like to do the CSS Classes Workshop, as that would provide an intro to coding that would actually result in applicable knowledge for the (presumably very junior) participants.
However, we don’t expect them to speak English very well, and the CSSClasses stuff so far is not translated. So we want to do a workshop for translating those, and integrate it with a Github workshop. Simple idea: Take the existing Github workshop, and instead of contributing to the Berlin Underground repo, we’d like the participants to help translate the CSS Classes repo.
A possible date would be the 22nd of November, which is a Sunday. I’ll ask Co-Up whether they’d be up for hosting us.
Action Items: Who’d be interested in helping out? I imagine the workshop to start in the morning with the Github course, and then in the afternoon we’d be translating the thing together. Ideally, we’d have people with commit rights around, so that during the workshop, we can actually get the translations merged (or discussed) right away.
Question: What do you think? Who should we reach out for? Do you like the idea?
