Meetup style events

Meetup style events to hold intro level classes, trainings.

Reasons why this wouldn’t happen: No time, no people, no lesson plans, no outreach, no space Possible solutions:

Yet, general feeling that this is not immediately actionable.

Laptops in 50 Broadway office

  • Stencil them and distribute to responsible WGs?
  • Relocate (lock-down) to Charlottes place?

DA Tools / Action Tools

Reportbacks from Devin/Lippe on previous efforts to connect with DA on tool use, which didn’t really result in much. General feeling that interested parties should find someone to work with in creating guide docs or suggestions that can be adopted if a group wants to.
