Yesterday, 09.07.2015, we gathered our first volunteers in the cozy atmosphere of Murphy’s pub. Over 20 enthusiasts discussed how to help build our community further by being involved in the following activities:
– Higher Education data project – project manager Anton Nenov
– Website update project – project manager Sergi Sergiev
– Data visualisation tools project – project manager Kaloyan Haralampiev and presented by Angel Marchev Jr.
– Education in Data Science (Master’s program and DSLabs) – project manager Alexander Efremov
– Operational aspects – events, promotion and content – presented by Iliyan Oprev, with project managers Iliyan, Sergi and Vladimir Labov
After a funny ice-breaking game orchestrated by Angel Marchev, Sergi outlined the plan for the meeting and each project manager said a few words about their initiative. Then we split in groups to discuss each project in detail – to agree on a detailed plan, tasks, collaboration tools and way of work, next steps and resources. The beer started flowing and its brainteasing virtues helped us to come up with great and original ideas 🙂
We agreed to meet again on 16 July at Eleven roof from 19:00, where each team will present their progress so far. If you intended to join us but could not, or if you are contemplating to participate, don’t hesitate and come to our next volunteer meeting!
