"Our Community" is written at the bottom in scripted text in white. The image is drawn in shades of green, grey, and black: in a cartoon-like style. The garden contains a toolshed in the far corner, with bushes that contain pie charts that a person with a computer is gardening. There is a person with a laptop pruning a tree that contains branches modeled to look like a grab. A person with a shovel is showing someone around the garden with a shovel, while another person is welcoming another person to the garden.](https://i.imgur.com/AJgGmCn.jpg) _Illustration by Scriberia showing community as a garden and members as gardeners.

The banner has UKRI - Innovate UK BridgeAI logos. "Register your interest: The Turing Way Practitioners Hub 2024/2025 cohort" is written in big letters.](https://hackmd.io/_uploads/BJg8XBkCp.jpg) The Turing Way Practitioners Hub is inviting Expressions of Interest (EoI) from organisations, small and midsize enterprises (SMEs) and industry experts engaged in data science and AI to work with us. With a focus on implementing best practices in data science and AI initiatives in their own organisations, practitioners from various sectors will engage in this cohort-based programme between September 2024 and February 2025. **The deadline for registering your interest is 30 May 2024.** πŸ‘‰ **[EoI form for SMEs and Organisations](https://forms.office.com/e/nk4kXZ2Fnt)** ### EoI to join Network of Advisors We are also accepting interest from individuals to join our network of advisors who will engage with our project and cohort activities. Advisors will bring real-world expertise that can benefit small and medium enterprises interested in implementing best practices in data science and AI initiatives in their organisations. πŸ‘‰ **[EoI form for advisors](https://forms.office.com/e/UXSM17tKMV)** Read more about the project to evaluate how you can contribute or participate in the second cohort - [visit our website](https://www.turing.ac.uk/turing-way-practitioners-hub).

The Turing Way has long roots at Collaborations Workshop: we were first launched at CW19 as a lightly opinionated guide to data science! In line with CW24's theme, we will be facilitating a showcase and discussions on the topics relating code testing, environmental impact of digital research and inclusive events. Join us if you are planning to attend CW24, please do attend the workshop for a chance to join the shared reflection, a 'happy birthday' chorus and sharing a cake (for in person participants). 🧁 Learn more on [the Github issue (#3551)](https://github.com/the-turing-way/the-turing-way/issues/3551). Also, join the discussion on how we should celebrate 5 years of our amazing community and project: [https://github.com/the-turing-way/the-turing-way/issues/3518](https://github.com/the-turing-way/the-turing-way/issues/3518) ## Watch back our April 2024 Community Forum ![Alt: Hand-drawn illustration with a yellow, grey, and black color scheme.
