Starting in December 2020 the Community Events Team will begin hosting monthly office hours.

General information[edit]

  • Initially these office hours will have no agenda and any community members who have questions about community events or who would like to get to know us better are welcome to drop in, hang out, or even co-work.
  • Over time we will adapt these office hours to community needs and interests and possibly add in themes, presentations, outside speakers or more.
  • We also may use these office hours to test out different software options that may be used at future remote events, however generally we will use google hangouts.

  • @Rfarrand (WMF): do you know anyone in the San Francisco Python Meetup group? They have been using Remo including yesterday evening and it looks like a great way to host fun socially distanced gatherings, but I haven't audited its language internationalization, accessibility, or privacy issues. It asks people to link to their LinkedIn, but I think that's optional and if you work with them they might be able to provide a version that asks for userpages first, if that's even an issue? It won't eliminate all friendly space issues, other than the non-socially distanced ones, of course. Can you find out whether they have a best practices guide for integrating with simultaneous in-person meetings? If not, I have another suggestion; please reply here and I will follow up either way. Grace Law is one of the SF Python Meetup admins if you need a name. And a huge thank you for addressing youth protection issues! Great work! 21:35, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
