There are alot of information available on the internet but it is difficult to find the right skills and right resource. - Turing way is an open science, community driven book project that aims to help people do ethical and reproducible science too easy not to do! - Needs as many different people from different backgrounds as possible for contributing new and reviewing/editing existing content to be as accessible and comprehensive as possible - About Turing Way Book Dash - Book dash (name evolved from book sprint) aims to bring people of different backgrounds together and provide them with a place to work with others with complementing skills or work on their own uninterrupted by creating new content, or using their existing content for the Turing way. - Open questions: (feel free to write them below): - How do the six volumes fit with the current structure of the book? - Current structure is lots of chapters - would like the book to look like is six volumes with chapters sorted into them -- Note on 6 volumes: Topic for 6 volumes are:-- - Reproducibility - Design - Communication & Outreach - Ethics - How to collaborate - Meta-Turing-Way - Report on [6 volume book on hackMD](https://hackmd.io/zVTeKhG2SIiBLam1YtILNg?view)

Important is to be engaged and aim to develop something that is engaging for everyone. - Do you have a plan for what the 6 volumes will each contain?

Here are a few suggestions for a good first contributions: - Review an existing chapter by suggesting a few changes in [the book](https://the-turing-way.netlify.com) and/or [repository](https://github.com/alan-turing-institute/the-turing-way). - Flag the unclear or duplicated information in the book by opening an [issue on the GitHub](https://github.com/alan-turing-institute/the-turing-way/issues). - Fix an [old issue](https://github.com/alan-turing-institute/the-turing-way/issues) or comment on the the [pull requests](https://github.com/alan-turing-institute/the-turing-way/pulls). - Write your personal experience of reproducible research in this [google form](https://goo.gl/forms/akFqZEIy2kxAjfZW2). - See more info on the GitHub: https://github.com/alan-turing-institute/the-turing-way/blob/master/project_management/online-collaboration-cafe.md --- ------- # Logistics - Slides - Binder slide - Catering: Morning Coffee - Quiet room: FN room - @all_contributors: Contact the team - Move the issue to the all_contributors repo - Laser pointer, mic, adapter, sticky notes and sharpies, A4 sheets, different color lanyards (5) - List of things to bring: - Reminder: How to get in the Turing? - Charger - Power adapter (converter) - Headphone - Water bottle - Things to bring for hackthon - Update the agenda with facilitators and speakers -----
