Python user groups 2013

Revision as of 22:27, 3 June 2013 by imported>Paulproteus

Goals

Between June 1 2013 and Dec 1 2013:

  • At least 3 intro / diversity events get run after consultation with the fellow in each of the first and second half of the fellowship
  • At least 3 user groups improve their speaker diversity in the first half of the fellowship and at least 5 user groups improve their speaker diversity in the second half of the fellowship

Plan

Within the first month:

  • Will announce the project to the user-group-organizers mailing list.
    • By Mon June 10.
    • I seem to have fallen off the list. Need to get back on, and re-tune my mailing list setup so I can handle more mailing lists again.
  • Write an outline for the informational index page that has info for user group organizers.
    • If time this month, turn that into a high-clarity web page.
    • Will probably try to get in person feedback from Michelle Rowley when I visit Portland for Open Source Bridge.
    • Will publish the source to the website as a git repository on presumably Github, to accept pull requests and other feedback.
    • Outline by June 17.
  • Identify 20 Python user groups and get in touch with their organizers, presumably by email, indicating these goals of the meta-organizer fellowship, linking to the guide, and asking if they'd like to participate and/or chat about the guide.
    • To help me do the contacting in batch, first I'll be making a spreadsheet or similar table of these groups, with estimates for their sizes.
      • Probably write some trivial scripts to pull data out of Meetup for this.
      • Probably ask Lynn about PyLadies groups and how they get organized.
    • Initial contact by Wed June 26.
