OGF weekend workshop

Posted by thilo on 10 March 2016 in English (English)

histor, joschi81 and I are going to meet in Hamburg, Germany, on the weekend of April 23/24 to have a two-day workshop about all things Opengeofiction. Though we're all members of the admin team, the focus of the meeting is intended to be on the geography, history and everything else related to our respective countries rather than on administrative issues.

Anyone interested to join us? We'd be more than happy to meet some other members of this community in person. If you're interested, please let us know, the sooner the better.

I'd appreciate the holiday but it's impossible for me to leave England that weekend! I assume you will publish what you have talked about.

I wish I could come, but I'm pretty stuck in the United States.

I'd love to be there, but unfortunately I'm not going to be able to make it.

I had been wondering about a UK get-together sometime.

That is close enough to visit for a weekend, but the end of april will be a very busy period for me. I 'd love to go, but I can't say for sure if that's possible just yet.

I'd actually have time! If I don't stay overnight and just come very early in the morning and leave in the afternoon, it would be about 60€ for the train ride. So it is feasible for me, but of course it depends on what you have in mind exactly? What do you guys mean by workshop, is it just a fancy name for a small little get-together, or do you want to offer courses etc? Btw, I think it's awesome that you'd want to organise that :)

@Sarepava: Don't count on anything getting published. It's very likely that we'll be too lazy to take minutes. I expect that the meeting will generate quite a few ideas that will find their way into future wiki articles, so there will be some indirect publishing, but that will of course be hard to identify for people who didn't attend.

@PortCal: Just let us know whenever you can make the decision. We'll have room for up to 10 participants (including ourselves), so there's no immediate need to commit yourself now.

@Leowezy: To see it as a "fancy name for a little get-together" is certainly justified to a certain degree, at least at the current stage. OTOH that means a chance for you to set parts of the agenda. Personally, I'm most interested to talk about possibilities of collaboration with regards to world history. My other main interest is the creation of terrain data, and I'm certainly willing to demonstrate how I've done so far, which might count as a "course". Also I'm still looking for ideas about how to improve that.

Creation of terrain data!

If it's at all possible to make a tutorial for this in the wiki, I would be absurdly happy. :-)

Oh man, I wish we could have one of these here in the United States.

I'm very interested in creating terrain data! However, I probably won't be ready to do so for a long time as progress on my country is slow.

After the event, if you gave us an update on how it went that would be great! Just for all of us who couldn't make it!
