    Welcome @flor14! I believe @crangelsmith is involved in that and would be a good person to talk to :)

    🎉 Hello Flor! 👋

    You can start by reading some guidelines here: alan-turing-institute/the-turing-way#967 and you can check the ongoing work on the Transifex: https://www.transifex.com/theturingway/theturingway/language/es/.

    And as @sgibson91 said, @crangelsmith can point you to the best starting point to get going.

    Can you send me your GitHub handle that I can add to the transifex?

    To allow more structured discussions, we now have a Slack space. Use this link to join: https://join.slack.com/t/theturingway/shared_invite/zt-fn608gvb-h_ZSpoA29cCdUwR~TIqpBw
    We won't be closing this Gitter channel, but this will serve as a public-facing point of contact for new members and quick interactions and Q&A with each other.
    Slack on the other hand will allow folks working on an issue to actively engage with others and invite discussions in dedicated channels.

    Do let me know if you have any trouble joining the Slack, I can send you a direct invite.

    Hi all, do you have good resources for creating open-source governance structures? By governance I mean questions related to how and who makes decisions, rights/responsibilities of authors/maintainers, selection/curation of contributions etc
    I'm struggling to find anything, I've opened an issue here alan-turing-institute/the-turing-way#1225

    @malvikasharan
    We have a new chapter in PR: alan-turing-institute/the-turing-way#1121 that discusses this in brief, but checkout The Carpentries teams and staff: https://carpentries.org/ and https://cdh.carpentries.org/community-development-roles.html

    Thanks @malvikasharan will look into it

    Both links above discuss governance for specific projects, which is really helpful, and I've taken away a few important points. But does anyone know of resources that discuss governance structures more generally, on a meta level, on not specifically for a given project? More about principles, best practices, things to keep in mind, tools to help decide which governance structures to include in one's own project, etc

    The book by Jono Bacon on community discusses this in detail. I haven’t seen it anywhere else (or haven’t looked harder).

    I saw this issue about the all contributors bot: all-contributors/all-contributors#362 The bot now seems to work on your repo, we're having the same issue, do you remember how you resolved the issue?

    Hi all! Alex from St Andrews here. I have a question about running R code on Binder - what would be the best way to ask it? The problem is described in rse-standrewscs/distance-binder-demo#1 and it seems https://github.com/alan-turing-institute/the-turing-way/blob/master/workshops/boost-research-reproducibility-binder/workshop-presentations/zero-to-binder-r.md does not cover additional dependencies.

    Hi Alex! 👋 They might be able to help you over in https://gitter.im/jupyterhub/binder

    Hi Jez! Thanks, will go there!

    But it would be amazing if you had time to suggest some amendments once you've worked out what the solution is!
    Alexander Konovalov
    @alex-konovalov
    Would be glad to!
    Is there any interest in examples of using Binder for more specialised Jupyter notebooks e.g. https://github.com/rse-standrewscs/gap-binder-template - it uses the GAP Docker container as a base image.
    Sarah Gibson
    @sgibson91
    @alex-konovalov There is also https://discourse.jupyter.org/c/binder for support questions :)
    Alexander Konovalov
    @alex-konovalov
    Thanks! (asked on Gitter already, will wait for a while)
    Sarah Gibson
    @sgibson91
    Yeah, unfortunately not many of us on the Binder operating team are R experts :confused:
    I wonder if recreating your config files using this project would help? https://github.com/karthik/holepunch

    Hi. Just joined the slack channel and working my way through understanding how this all works. I started a postdoc at Turing a couple weeks ago, sorry still stumbling through how stuff works.
    On that note: the link in this paragraph to the Univeristy of Leiceter yields a 404. Should I raise a ticket for that? “use respectful, gender-neutral and inclusive language (learn more about inclusive writing, resource by University of Leicester).”

    @malvikasharan
    Hi @griff-rees, Welcome to the community. A PR correcting the link error will be great. You can also directly post your comments on Slack channels, or post your PR there so that someone can review it.

    @griff-rees
    Hey @malvikasharan, cool thanks. Sorry looking through the slack channel/github instructions I got the sense this was a more informal place to start. I'll see what I can figure of what is was referring to and see if there's another page with. the same info to reconnect this. Thanks :)
    Oh and apologies: I see my attempted link in the previous post didn't come through, will fix that for clarity
    griff-rees
    @griff-rees
    Right so hopefully this makes sense. Will put it in slack as well, thanks @malvikasharan for the reply: alan-turing-institute/the-turing-way#1865

    @griff-rees
    Just FYI: it's not a pull request because I haven't found an obvious fix, apologies

    Hello Everyone. I learnt about The Turing way from a friend. I informed him I wanted to start research and would like to learn about it and he recommend I join The Turing Way. Happy to be here!

    Hi all! I'm Anne, TTW Community Manager. This might be of interest to folks here, but we have recently joined the fediverse: https://scholar.social/web/@turingway@fosstodon.org (thank you to Danny Garcide – who is not on this Gitter).

    We know that the community is not very active on this channel, so we are thinking of closing down this ground and directing people towards the fosstodon profile instead (which we monitor more closely). What do you all think? We're keen support people in using the tools they're most comfortable with, without becoming too scattered. I'll be monitoring this chat, and feel free to message me directly.
