Recap of 1 February 2018 Meeting

@juliekuehl is still working on the GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ screencast

@jillbinder gave an update on the Diversity Speaker Training: both small and medium to-do items need doing but there is now a deadline of the end of February for an event in Vancouver. Promotion for the the training to be used worldwide in meetups will start soon too, so that helps with motivation!

Also a question about handouts and slides and whether that should just wait for GitHub. @melindahelt suggested to just create what is needed and we’ll figure out the best way to share them, even if it isn’t the final way.

Work on lesson plans has been a little slow because of the anticipated shift to GitHub.

@jillbinder asked about how she could be “gatekeeper” for future changes in some lesson plans. That should also be addressed in the move to GitHub.
