    By way of introduction: I'm Jez Cope, Data Services Lead at The British Library and I've been funded by a Fellowship from the Software Sustainability Institute to get this community up and running. And this is my cat, Felix ☝️

    Hi Jez! This is just to say that i am happy to help with the facilitation or some backend support with technology etc for the workshop as much as my schedule allows. Good luck with everything. Btw, I love the site, its simplicity and the documentation.

    Hi @ilkayholt_twitter! Thank you so much! 😀
    I should probably encourage both of you to introduce yourselves, to whatever level of detail you feel comfortable with...

    Hello! I'm Rachel MacGregor, Digital Preservation Officer at the University of Warwick and very keen to improve my own skills and build confidence within the sector. Happy to help with whatever needs doing - probably in the proof reading/facilitating line. I don't have a cat but I do have some tomato plants which need about the same level of attention.

    Hi! I'm Henry Bolshaw, Systems Librarian at the House of Lords Library. I'm happy to help out in anyway I can. I don't bring a huge amount of expertise to the table but I will try to make up for that in enthusiasm.

    Hi @An_Old_Hand_twitter & @henrybolshaw 👋 glad you could join us!

    @jezcope
    I also see @mbennett-uoe & @peterneish lurking: feel free to let us know a bit more about your interests!
    (Or not, no pressure :smile: )

    @jezcope | @jez:petrichor.me , are you waiting for us to start discussing ideas here or are you planning to discuss via email or some other method?
    Sorry, I should have probably included a 'Hello' or 'Hi!' in that message! Apologies if that was a bit abrupt - I've been struggling with R and regular expressions this morning and might be a bit grumpy!

    @henrybolshaw: I feel your pain!
    To be honest, I'm balancing getting this community up and running with the day job, so the timescales will necessarily be fairly long
    I sketched out a roadmap to help set some expectations https://glamdatasci.network/2021/03/roadmap-2021-q2/

    I'm hoping to have a couple of synchronous workshops to discuss ideas over the next month or so, one at IDCC (https://www.dcc.ac.uk/events/idcc2021) if there's enough interest there, and one separately
    But it would be really helpful to have some discussion here too either side of those

    (I started writing a short update email this morning for those who've subscribed to the mailing list, so these questions are actually really helpful)

    Hi @jezcope and all. Now i am with you, downloaded the app 🤭 will catch up with the roadmap tomorrow morning.

    Re. About myself 👋; i work at British Library as a community engagement lead (i know that is a fancy and scary title but wait) for the Advancing Hyku (open source repository software) project. I am 0.5 at BL and that’s why i am involved in other repository projects in some other organisations. I thought i can be useful as facilitator and might be able to provide feedback for the workshop program. More importantly i can also learn more about data science while working, exchanging ideas with you.
