    Hello,
    I'm a software developer who had recently moved to Berlin and I'm interested in community work. I'd like to ask how can I participate in OTS as a coach (JavaScript, Node.js, Front-end development, React.js)?

    hi @evvvvr and welcome to Berlin and OTS! :)
    if you are free tonight, you can come to our learners meetup. i'll be there as well as a few other organizers/coaches
    @evvvvr another meetup format we have is called "co-learning" and given the tech you mentioned, the frontend co-learning would be a good fit
    that is every wednesday, including today: https://www.meetup.com/opentechschool-berlin/events/250423447/

    Thank You! I'm so sorry, I'm not available today and the rest of the week. Will go to web frontend co-learning next Wednesday!

    @haikoschol Should I notify someone that I want to join there as a coach/helper or I'll just go there and tell about it to organizers?
    Haiko Schol
    @haikoschol
    just go there. i'm not at this particular meetup, but at the python co-learning we always have a short explanation how things work and usually do an introduction round. it's probably the same at the frontend meetup. the people running it are all very friendly and helpful :)
    in general we want to keep the line between learner and coach blurry. coach basically only means that you can answer some questions that come up and don't mind doing so. there are some basic guidelines what to do and not to do as a coach. when you talk to the organizers they will probably tell you about that. there should also be a presentation somewhere on opentechschool.org. i'm pretty busy with work right now, so can't look for it

    hi @RohanYarburg , welcome!
    what is HackYourFuture?
    what are your expectations of OpenTechSchool?
    Rohan Yarburg
    @RohanYarburg
    Thank you @xMartin , HackYourFuture is a coding school, they teach and guide refugees to learn programming and web development.
    I don’t know about OpenTechSchool until yesterday, so I don’t know what to expect. I read there’s some events of meeting up for some different workshops or courses.

    @RohanYarburg
    But I was wondering if there’s like a space where I can just go, sit and study. The internet in the center where is stay is actually really slow and the environment is quite busy and noisy.
