This is an opportunity for tech workers to come together and discuss not only our working conditions but also tactics to promote change. ### Breakout rooms: Topic proposals and notes *If you have an idea for a topic you'd like to discuss in a breakout room, please add it below and put your name next to it. If you like one of the topics that are already suggested, please add your name next to that one. Teamwork makes the dream work. For more information about breakout rooms see [the description on GitHub](https://github.com/alan-turing-institute/the-turing-way/blob/master/project_management/online-collaboration-cafe.md#breakout-rooms).* * Low Traffic Neighbourhoods * The A/B Streets LTN tool is an open source app for evaluating the impact of LTN filters, planters or bollards which block vehicle access to a road, on local traffic patterns. The tool can be downloaded and run locally or through this website. By placing filters onto their local streets, users can experiment with how different placements will affect their communities. The LTN tool visualizes where traffic will be diverted within the neighborhood as a result of the intervention and offers other features to aid policymaker and resident decision making: - Policymakers can use the LTN tool to ensure that their planned interventions actually achieve a desired goal, such as preventing “rat runs”, vehicle routes that cut through neighborhoods which can cause safety and quality of life problems. - Residents can use the LTN tool to understand how different interventions will impact their travel routes, by viewing new suggested routes and change in travel time. The LTN tool is still under development, so there are a few things it can’t do yet or isn’t built to do. These include: - Showing impact on traffic patterns outside a selected neighborhood Predict how much traffic will increase or decrease overall - Getting started with the LTN tool is as easy as visiting the website and starting to place filters on your locations of interest. To learn more on how to use the tool, watch this how-to video. * Open Source Governance * * * * ## Archive: 20 April ### Sign up below **Name + What are some tips you apply to stay healthy while working from home/long hour in front of computer? + an emoji to represent it ([emoji cheatsheet](https://github.com/ikatyang/emoji-cheat-sheet/blob/master/README.md))** *(Remember that this is a public document.

I often get started and think "oh there's too much intro here" but then leave feeling really beautifully connected to the other participants. + :hugging_face: * I think undoing the expectations of _productivity_ is both hard but really great if they can do it well! * Arielle + I loved a curated networking event where we were all paired up based on our interests + :spider_web: * Yani + I like on-line event because I can attend (I don't have to travel, I don't have to go through visa processes, money...). I enjoy tRivia at useR! 2021 (people come and join groups to answer question about R and win prizes) and RechaRge (yoga on-line ;-)) * Aida - I like events where we've been assigned to rotating 10min 1-2-1 chats to discuss on pre-assigned topics. * Emma - SSI Collaboration workshop - super intense but very productive. *Topics for breakout / Names* * Yani - I want to know more about the Book Dash. * Kirstie - I'm here for the conversations but I also need to send a million emails - so I'm unfortunately going to need to be in a silent working room this week :weary: * Emma - working more on templates for managing sensitive projects to combine with Maria E's chapter. * Arielle - quiet individual working for me * Aida - quiet working for me too please ## Archive: 04 August **Name + What research or social topics in academia that you wish we talked more about? + an emoji to represent it ([emoji cheatsheet](https://github.com/ikatyang/emoji-cheat-sheet/blob/master/README.md))** * Malvika + More places for people to freely express how they can be supported in their participation in research projects/workforce. + 📝 (visible documents) * Callum (from 4pm to work on this [onboarding PR](https://github.com/alan-turing-institute/the-turing-way/pull/1806) - I wish people talked more about imposter syndrome and toxic perfectionism, though it seems to be better outside of academic circles! ) +100 * Alexia + I wish we had more time dedicated for training as postgraduates (e.g. R training, coding, open access) + :female-teacher: * Emma + +1 for training throughout careers - hard to fit in time-wise and can be costly :+1: * Sarah + +1 to Callum's answer. I talked a lot about how academia sucked with my cohort but didn't have any power (or didn't know how to use the power we were unaware we had) to change things ourselves + :fist: * Alejandro + Citizen science and education + :busts_in_silhouette: * Achintya + It would be nice if there was more support in general for those in the "softer" social sciences, which still tend to rely on proprietary software * Jessica + open science and the time and skills required to do it well *Topics for breakout / Names* * Alexia : Working on a paragraph/subchapter on predatory publishing (idea to discuss) - Emma is supporting/mentoring this * Sarah: Gonna pick up that Binder/Communication PR again! (quiet, solo working) * Bea: working on scivision :koala: * Malvika: Working on this PR for the first pomodoro: ## Archive: 21 July **Name + Do you have any story of review process for a piece of code/document that improved the quality of your work + an emoji to represent it. * Malvika + A software workflow I developed in my PhD was reviewed by the paper reviewer and they suggested some really great ideas on executable parameters, docker container redesign etc. that only made my work easy to reproduce/run + 😇 * Sophia - a style guide and template central (and maybe documenting the process) * Lotty + the other day when Malvika and Georgia made suggestions for my assessment documentation/portfolio! Really helped me present clearly and strongly what I have done on my grad scheme. And this will help me write strong examples in future reviews/assessments. * Kirstie (3-4 pm) + peer review made coauthor integrate some ideas that I was suggesting but were ignored at the time of submission (so negative! SORRY!) * Danny Gerside + * Pooja Gadige + ### Conversation Starters *Advertise and promote your event or anything exciting you're working on.* ✨ * Community Manager Jobs: https://twitter.com/MalvikaSharan/status/1412720140626579459?s=20 * Connecting projects in The Turing Way: https://twitter.com/turingway/status/1412772004395094017?s=20 * Arielle - the next Tools, Practices & Systems seminar on 28 July ft Open Mined - sign up here: https://www.turing.ac.uk/events/tools-practices-systems-monthly-meet *Topics for breakout / Names* * Malvika: Working on setting a repo for a research project with Batool * Lotty and Malvika discussed impact stories, community metrics and promotional materials as outputs in the community projects * Danny and Malvika discussed the idea of a foreword in teh book * Danny is editing the welcome page - which we will transfer to the foreword * Malvika will add links to the history issue * Sophia is working on visual guide, Malvika connected her to Yanina * Danny is a color researcher and shared some resources with Sophia to help her choose colors for accessibility. ## Archive: 07 July **Name + share about a research or non-research collaboration that went really well + an emoji to represent it ([emoji cheatsheet](https://github.com/ikatyang/emoji-cheat-sheet/blob/master/README.md))** * Malvika - writing blog with a few colleagues 🙏 * Callum - a couple of weeks ago I was in close-collaboration with my brother, looking after his newborn, and we successfully kept him alive and mostly not crying. * Arielle (from 4pm) - I feel like almost all my work is collaboration based :world_map: * Daisy: * Emma: * Pooja: * Jessica: * Iain Stenson: Recently joined Turing (and the collaboration cafe) * Patricia: delivering several project reports for review on time :pencil: * Isabel: Training our new dog with my partner :dog: ### Conversation Starters *Advertise and promote your event or anything exciting you're working on.* ✨ * Community Manager Jobs: https://twitter.com/MalvikaSharan/status/1412720140626579459?s=20 * Connecting projects in The Turing Way: https://twitter.com/turingway/status/1412772004395094017?s=20 * Arielle - the next Tools, Practices & Systems seminar on 28 July ft Open Mined - sign up here: https://www.turing.ac.uk/events/tools-practices-systems-monthly-meet *Topics for breakout / Names* * Alejandro: Translation to Spanish <-- unfortunately down with COVID * Emma: Lots of chapter on collaborative manuscript authorship * Daisy: curating chapters for DSG * Pooja: shared ownership PR review * Also issue on software or project documentation template and starting point, connecting them with guidance (starting with python packages) * Jessica: Code review
