Join us for 1.5 hours Thursday, June 10th, 5 PM Pacific / Friday June 11th 00:00 UTC for our fourth co-working “label-athon”.

  • Meet other package developers and rOpenSci staff in Zoom
  • Co-work independently, implementing some of our recommendations for what you can add/modify in your own package to encourage community participation
    • Code of Conduct
    • Contributing guide
    • Roadmap and expectations
    • Open and label issues to invite contributions
  • Get answers to your questions

At the end of the session we’ll tweet links to your “help wanted” issues to help you get attention to your project.

Our experiment includes 4 label-athons (if y’all show up, we can do more) at alternating times to accommodate our community around the world. Thursdays April 29, May 13, May 27, June 10.
