hey @SouthernFriedScientist - love the look of the site. could you direct me to where i should be looking specifically? thanks again!

@kaythaney
hi all! if you're in toronto, there's a science #tweetup (/meet open science twitter friends in real life): https://www.facebook.com/events/1661691710735395/
(also, eva is at Faculty of 1000 and a big open science advocate. and lovely human.)
Amy Lee
@minisciencegirl
There is also rumor of great buttons being given out at the Toronto #tweetup if you need more reasons to show up!

@maxkfranz
@SouthernFriedScientist Looks cool! On the side itself, I have a bit of trouble reading the links at the top over the background image.
elliec
@elliec
@SouthernFriedScientist looks good ! I also didn't notice the links, maybe try white or yellow? it should show up over that dark background. Who's your target audience? anyone? Or do some of those tools need special skills to build? Really cool project btw :)
Thea Boodhoo
@tharkibo
@SouthernFriedScientist On that top section I would ditch the text-shadow, go with white instead of yellow for the text, and use a background image that has a more uniform tone to make your main headline stand out more and to make it easier to read at a glance. With the bright sky and super dark mountains right behind the text it's a lot going on at once. Scrolling down, I recommend a more descriptive header than "Welcome!" Your first line is better, "The ocean belongs to us all." Then open your body paragraph with "However, the tools necessary..." Also you might want to check out Google Fonts and pick one that's a little less common but still highly readable. For your three highlighted products, same deal with the "welcome", write something short but descriptive in the headline for each, like "workhorse of oceanography." Remember people will be skimming this and not reading all the paragraphs but looking for you to answer "what is this and what do they want from me" -- it's a good idea to answer that immediately. Give your products section a headline of its own, like "Open Source Ocean Tools" or something so that users don't have to read each paragraph to find out what those three tools have in common. Also maybe go with a softer color palette for your links--the default blue/purple clashes with your other colors and looks default-y. That's all I got for now, great start Andrew! Excited to see where it goes. :D

Thanks all!

@tomhohenstein
@SouthernFriedScientist First, the site is great and I’m really impressed with your work. A few additional thoughts:
The “Parts Depot” link in the blue welcome section is linked to http://oceanographyforeveryone.com/ when I think you want it to link to http://oceanographyforeveryone.com/depot.html
I like a larger nav-bar - it can be tricky to see the about, our products, meet the team, and join the mailing list links
I would add a footer with some basic contact information (if only to give the page some closure)
Tom Hohenstein
@tomhohenstein
@SouthernFriedScientist You could move the “join the mailing list” into a “call to action” button in the first section. That would make it stand out a little more
@SouthernFriedScientist just some initial thoughts. If I can help in anyway, feel free to ask.

Hi guys! Today we launched CarnegieQuarry.com and the Digital Quarry that I told everyone about at the summit. I've set up a github repo for it as well -- which wouldn't exist without our workshop so thanks again! -- and I'd love your feedback on it! https://github.com/carnegiequarry/digitalquarryproject
Andrew Thaler
@SouthernFriedScientist
Thanks everyone! I'll be plugging away at your suggestions this week!

@tharkibo - the website looks awesome! Very cool.

hi all - in case you haven’t seen, zannah wrote a summary post on the workshop and what we learned: https://www.mozillascience.org/teaching-leadership-like-mozilla
Madeleine Bonsma-Fisher
@mbonsma
Thanks @kaythaney, that was a great read!
Does anyone know if the notes from the etherpad are available as well? I looked around a bit but couldn't find it back.
@mbonsma ^ just the text, but hopefully helpful!

@acabunoc I've made some small edits to the working open guide but not sure if i did the pull request right because im not seeing what the contributing.md says i should... let me know if its ok!
Abigail Cabunoc Mayes
@acabunoc
@elliec amazing! I'll take a look :)
That was perfect, ellie! thank you :)

Hi all, I have written up a roadmap summarising what we learnt at the summit and what we plan on implementing in the near future. You can find it here: http://geotagx.org/project/geotagxblog/15 (its a bit text heavy, images are coming :) ). I was going to add some of the community management sections to the working open guide but I'm not sure if it is relevant and if it is where it would fit into the guide? Maybe under the project management section? Let me know if you think it fits and I will add it in. I also went through and organised our issues using labels and milestones following the advice at the summit. You can see that here https://github.com/geotagx/geotagx-theme/issues, any thoughts are welcome! We plan on tagging some of them as beginners bugs. I decided to remove the "low priority" label because a lot of the beginners issues will be low priority and i didn't want people thinking their work isn't important. Now we just need to find some contributors...!

thanks @elliec ! tagging @zee-moz for this, too ^^^

hey gang! wanted to send an update that we have a new community lead joining us today to help support events like the leadership summit, and groups / people like yourselves. more here: https://www.mozillascience.org/welcoming-aurelia-moser-to-the-team

hey CERN folks! @joeyklee and I are leading a friendly intro to GitHub workshop on Tues at UBC. We'd like to point to a repo as an example of how GH can be used in open science at a large research institution. Do you have a public link to a repo we can use from CERN?
Abigail Cabunoc Mayes
@acabunoc
@stephwright I think the CERN ppl are mostly in https://gitter.im/mozillascience/working-open-workshop
Stephanie Wright
@stephwright
Gah! they are! I put it in the wrong Gitter room! Sorry folks! (Thanks @acabunoc )
Tom Hohenstein
@tomhohenstein
well - let us know how the workshop goes! : )
Stephanie Wright
@stephwright
Of course!
Kaitlin Thaney
@kaythaney
@/all if anyone has a github example to @stephwright ’s question above, would love to hear it! (CERN or no CERN. ;) )
@demitri - any astro examples?

@demitri
@kaythaney Sorry, just saw this. I don’t have a good exmaple unfortunately; my survey is still stuck with SVN, and that’s not likely to change.
The larger institutions are reluctant to use these things for large scale use. First there is the CHANGE issue (many people resistant to this, particularly older ones). The biggest is putting a great deal of reliance on a company: “What if they disappear overnight?” GitHub usage has been taken up relatively quickly and widely by younger scientists. It will trickle up through attrition.

Hey @stephwright: what are your plans on April 4th? The Vancouver Study Group is hosting a mini-R symposium, featuring lots of awesome discussions on open data/ tools for open data. Check out the discussion thread here and a tentative meeting schedule - minisciencegirl/studyGroup#100
Stephanie Wright
@stephwright
@minisciencegirl ARGH! I’m actually going to be on the other side of the continent in Toronto for our Work Week!
I wish I could be there! :(

y' @/all should join this room: https://gitter.im/mozillascience/community

We'll be inviting global sprint participants there shortly
