Video Hack Space
Report on the 1st group event at Juno, Shoreditch xxx participants
1- What kind of user group do we need?
A) Speaker (Top Down) B) Expectations C) All projects worked on at same time at same place at a regular place - guest speaker say once a month)
2 - Training / workshop discussion List of training will be decided organically in the next events. Format of training (length, costs, venue, dates...) which board? training for beginers (volunteers?)
Training will be detrmined by the needs of the user group meetings
Create List with needs and what people can put in i.e mentors Mentor to identify them selves to be avilibile to be approached Information to be centralised on Wiki, Website and Mailing list to be only tools
There will be members of our group that are able to offer mentoring skills. Some kind of repayment may be required (travel, beers), as a community we look after eachother anyway - we know this. We need to be able to provide a mentor during sessions to help those who have difficulty getting off the ground - without tieing the mentors up too much - so I suggest beginners learn to help eachother. It was mentioned member pages to store projects, to source help and document what they have done/learned.
3 - Skills available in the group (add your own skills here, please don't be modest)
4 - Social media tools for the group Using Hackspace wiki as main documentation tool and Google group as conversation, for the latest update and as a reference for the external world http://www.videohackspace.org .
