Meetup Feb. 7 2019 in Berlin


(Philip Durbin) #1

Hi! I’m traveling to Germany for the first time to give a talk at Open Science Days 2019 (Feb 5-6) at Harnack House in Berlin. The topic is research software and the conference website is http://osd.mpdl.mpg.de

On Thursday, February 7th I’ll be done with the conference and free to get together with anyone who’s interested. (It’s also possible that I’ll have some time the evening before.) By then I’ll be staying in Mitte. A casual meetup would be fine, coffee or a beer to talk about open source design. Please leave a reply here or please feel free to email me at philipdurbin@gmail.com. Thanks!

I would love to meet.

Possible topics

  • Design processes and open source culture
  • My relation to open science software is mainly via statistics (Jamovi, JASP, R)
    • I’m also interested in how preregistration and data sharing change science

Do we want to use the occasion to restart the monthly Berlin meetup maybe? :slight_smile: Could we use WikiBär for that too @Incabell @jdittrich?

Great idea but don’t we meet a week before in Brussels?

I wish!!! I don’t live in Berlin anymore :frowning:

@htietze yes, there is FOSDEM in Brussels where lots of us are – but we do have the devroom as well as the booth, and usually we are very busy with that. :slight_smile:

@Incabell @jdittrich in the calendar of Wikibär, there’s nothing yet for February 7: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiBär/Kalender – should I just reserve?


(Jdittrich) #7

Yes, this makes sense.

Posted on the discussion page of the WikiBär location now https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_Diskussion:WikiBär#Anfrage:_Nutzung_für_Treffen_von_Open_Source_Design_am_7._Februar (German)

Seems like it’s available on the calendar, but I’ll let you know when it’s reserved.

@jan thank you very much for arranging a place and time!

I’m looking forward to meeting everyone! See you there!


(Jan-Christoph Borchardt) #11

I unfortunately am out today, caught a cold or flu at FOSDEM. :frowning:

@jdittrich will be there with the key for WikiBär so it’s all right. :slight_smile: Hope some of you also have Open Source Design stickers to give out! Sorry to miss it!

Maybe time to chat about doing the meetup more regularly again, like monthly?
