We have signal!

It has been a long time in the making and on are wishlists for even longer, so we are more than thrilled to present the very first OpenTechSchool newsletter, a global outlet for all things OTS.

Learn what your sibling chapters are doing, which new material we are working on, how we are improving our workshops, where Ben is traveling this month, and who is joining our family.

March 2016

Learners Guidelines

We already had coaching guidelines, now we also have guidelines for workshop participants. The learners guidelines were drafted by Bettina, once a learner herself and now a valuable organizer for the Berlin chapter. You can find the guidelines here.

Instant Messaging, revamped!

We adopted a new communication tool, for real-time participation: Gitter!

After Slack got some mixed reviews, mostly related to the closed nature of the app, we are now experimenting with a more open approach. Aside from enabling you to chat with your fellow organizers, Gitter can also be used during workshops and other events, for instance to share URLs. Come say hi!

Help improve the OTS website

We are currently in the process of improving our website and could use your help!

As a start, it would be great if you could check out the site and look for possible improvements, or errors. Once you found something that needs work (and you will!) head over to our Github repo and create an issue. Or, if you'd like to do more (and improve on your web development skills), start working on one of the open issues!

If anything is unclear, leave a comment (on a Github issue) and we'll try and clear things
up.
