OpenRefine community meetup

This thread lists occurrences of a regular video call for the OpenRefine community. It happens every two weeks on alternating times:

  • 07:00 UTC on Friday
  • 15:00 UTC on Tuesday

You can see all the occurrences of this meeting (including the link to the call) in this calendar. You can also subscribe to it as an iCal / ICS calendar, with this URL.

Everybody is welcome to chat about OpenRefine, ask questions, share things they do with OpenRefine, ask questions about developing the tool, and anything else related to the project. I try to attend each call.

Interested attendees are encouraged to announce in this thread what they want to share in the coming meetup, so that we have an idea of what to expect, but it's not required.

This meetup is a follow-up to the previous "contributor meetups", making it explicitly open to people who don't identify as "contributors", but as users or are simply curious.

The first occurrence will be
On: 2024-03-01T07:00:00Z (on the forum this date should be displayed in your own timezone, otherwise it is 2024-03-01 at 07:00 UTC)

Looking forward to seeing many of you there!

This week I propose to try get users and Google Summer of Code applicants to meet.
Do you have a very annoying bug you would like to get solved? That would be a great opportunity to pitch it to applicants, who might be able to solve it!

Our meetup is happening again this week.

The previous meetup had a nice turnout and the format worked well, so I propose to do the same this week: try get users and Google Summer of Code applicants to meet (with the expectation that this different time slot will cater for participants from other parts of the world).

Users: Do you have a very annoying bug you would like to get solved? That would be a great opportunity to pitch it to applicants, who might be able to solve it!

GSoC applicants: Do you want to understand better who uses OpenRefine and what they need? That's the purpose of this call :slight_smile:

There is no agenda for this one, this is just an "office hour" where you can come with any problems or ideas you have and we talk about it.

Ooops, I missed this community meetup :slightly_frowning_face:
