    Nope, all good @libcce . Also, I've looked through your PRs, but don't have the permissions to merge.

    Looks like a successful sprint. I was so much busier this week and I thought, glad I got work done earlier in the month. I WILL be back again soon to engage more issues for the community. Kudos for the work that got done.

    Tucson signing off. Thanks again to the LC community for all the hard work on these awesome instructional materials. Special kudos to @libcce for wrangling us.

    Thank all of you! We submitted a lot of PRs! And I think created 4-5 Top 10 FAIR Data & Software Things.

    I have a question: Do the Carpentries have a presence at ALA? I wonder if this is a good place to connect the community to new points...
    Chris Erdmann
    @libcce
    @jyssy A number of us have had conversations w/ ALA and presentations but it hasn't moved further beyond that. We've run workshops, given presentations, held birds of a feather sessions in connection with other conferences as well. The other day someone asked me if we could set up a booth at the Public Library Association Meeting which I think would be great but we don't really have the funds for that. We were planning on reaching out to associations soon. But in the meantime, if you have any ideas about what we could do at ALA, that would be great.

    I will def think about it - I will be there this year and will look about with this in mind. thanks

    @libcce
    @jyssy There is also this track at ER&L that we inspired https://erl19.sched.com/overview/type/8.+Data+Science+in+Libraries

    I was also thinking that it would be nice if we had a LibraryCarpentryCon

    YES

    @libcce
    Seems about time for it. The community has grown and I think we all can benefit from a meeting

    (we need a 'like' feature here on gitter) :)
    Chris Erdmann
    @libcce
    Ha! Yeah, I've searched for that too!
    But these are some ideas we haven't brought up yet regarding goals for the Advisory Group for the coming 1-2 years https://librarycarpentry.org/advisory/
    Discussion is here BTW LibraryCarpentry/governance#13

    @jyssy
    I will look over these. thanks

    @libcce
    Hi @jyssy and everyone, ER&L will have a data science in libraries track once again https://www.electroniclibrarian.org/ 8-11 March 2020. If we have enough Library Carpentry/Carpentries people going, we can also think about organizing some other sessions to bring people together.

    @libcce, good to know about ER&L. That's a great conference I've been wanting to head back to. /thumbs-up

    Hi @jezcope, @libcce and everyone. Next week is the CarpentryConnect event in Manchester, UK. I am running a breakout session titled "Strengthening the Library Carpentry community". My original aim was to encourage the development of LC in the north of England, however, the same process applies everywhere. If you are attending or not, the following document gives an outline of the session and invites you to suggest discussion points to guide us: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GtGYyNJ5k8CX2A8LxsLVbwFYS2eRdY5XtRnk5X9aHQc/edit?usp=sharing

    Your input would be most appreciated (I'm pretty new to the Carpentries, I've co-led 1 LC and 1 SWC session).

    Chris Erdmann
    @libcce
    Thanks for doing this @PhilReedData (and your collaborators) ! I've added a little more and you reminded me to ask people at U of Toronto Libraries to share their recent successful proposal if they can.
    I'm excited to see what comes out of this session!

    @libcce
    So thanks to @jyssy suggestion about getting a booth at a library conference, I reached out to https://www.electroniclibrarian.org/ and it looks like we can have a smallish space where we can have brochures, flyers, bookmarks, stickers, etc. ER&L will also have a data science track again. If anyone is interested in attending, let me know. Sounds like @kekoziar might be? When we asked if people wanted stickers there were suggestions from libraries about putting together bookmarks/brochures.

    Glad I could help. That is good to hear. thank you @libcce

    @kekoziar
    Yes, @libcce, I am interested in attending, and would be willing to help staff a booth if I go.
    K.E. Koziar
    @kekoziar
    @libcce, were you also thinking about a library carpentry workshop at ER&L?

    sorry fat finger.
    Chris Erdmann
    @libcce
    @kekoziar sorry for the delay, been on paternity leave. We've discussed running a workshop with UT Austin but it never got off the ground. Instead, at ER&L, we thought it would be great if people submitted 1/2 - 1 day workshops based on LC/Carpentries lessons. But you can also submit a talk. And great to hear that you can possibly help with the booth :)
    K.E. Koziar
    @kekoziar
    @libcce no worries. Congrats!

    I will probably find some time to start working on some issues soon - as I am getting settled in my new position here in Chitown

    @libcce
    @jyssy welcome to Chitown! Looking forward to seeing you on the lesson repos issues and PRs soon!

    @JordanPedersen
    @libcce myself and two other librarians (Kyla Jemison and James Mason) from University of Toronto submitted a workshop proposal for a Carpentries mash-up/remix intro to regex and openrefine for ER&L. If it gets accepted we'll be on the look out for helpers as well @kekoziar ;)

    @jyssy
    Thank you @libcce

    @jyssy
    Happy monday, I submitted an edit to one of the issues in bash shell, but I am thinking about another of the issues, related to the complaint that the json file is hard to type because of the number of 0s. I am happy to change the example file names and change the file in the zip file, but am not sure how to load (or embed) the zip file with the changed file. here is my issue question: https://github.com/LibraryCarpentry/lc-shell/issues/100#issuecomment-552488592
    thank you
    Chris Erdmann
    @libcce
    @jyssy might be good to reach out to or tag @jt14den
    he was the last one to zip the file
    Jesse L
    @jyssy
    thanks
    Hey @jt14den I am looking at the issue (noted just aboe Chris' comment) related to bash-shell and was planning to make that change of the file name (is it pretty easy to embed a zip file in an instruction - or should I send the zip with the newly renamed file to you?) thanks
