Slack Invites for Active Contributors

Most of our day-to-day chat happens on #openlibrary-g -- a public community channel on our archive.org slack. We're happy to send invites to Active Contributors who have worked through setting up Docker and or have demonstrated commitment by discussing or working on issues. If you are an active contributor and would like to be apart of our slack channel, please let us know here. If your github email is not public, please send an email to mek@archive.org so we can add you.

Requirements

What is an Active Contributor? An active contributor has done one or more of the following things:

  • You've setup docker (or you've hit a problem with docker and need help)
  • You've attended one of our community calls
  • You've created an issue or commented meaningfully on an existing issue
  • You've submitted a meaningful PR to address an issue

Why Are There Requirements?

As you can see in the comments below, we receive a large volume of requests from community members to join our slack channel. A good portion of the folks we invite don't end up participating making it hard for new members to figure out who the active members are. As a result, we have decided to reserve slack as a place where trusted active contributors can meet, discuss issues, and unblock each other.

But I Need Help!

We've got you covered -- If you're just getting started, we have a gitter channel (https://gitter.im/theopenlibrary/Lobby) where you can ask troubleshooting questions and receive help choosing a first issue.

@mekarpeles I feel it would be better if we put this maybe in the README rather than over here as it's too many tabs for a contributor to traverse through to find this! We already have put out Gitter Channel link on the README, so maybe we could have that first-time contributors can ask questions on the Gitter channel and then get added to the Slack channel. As in this entire thing could be one process!

What do you think about it?

@seabelis, if you send me an email mek@archive.org we'd be happy to invite you to our slack channel. Designers and librarians are still developers and we're happy to receive input and contributions from everyone! Thanks for lending your voice :) and amazing job with the logos, this was such a big help.

Hello Everyone, I am a Web Developer student at DevMountain Bootcamp and I am building a React application for a project assignment that uses the Open Library API to search books and display results. I am thinking that in the future I could potentially convert this to React Native as a mobile application. Here is my project (still work in progress): https://github.com/LoganSimonsen/no-db-project

Do you know if anyone has built a mobile application already for Open Library?

@mekarpeles maybe we should think of redirecting to a readme as said by @salman-bhai as i was redirected by this link https://archive.org/about/volunteerpositions.php so we should change the link to our contributors guide

Hi, I just got to find out about archive.org today and It was really helpful for what I needed to do at that moment. Although I may not be able to make a reasonable donation, I will like to help out in the area of development. I am a full-stack JS developer and can comfortably work with PHP and Python also. If you need extra hands as volunteers, I will be glad to help out. Email: amadiluckysampson@gmail.com

@w3bh4ck and @viccro are our last invites for the time being!

We have a large number of guests in our openlibrary slack channel who are are inactive and because of this, future invitations will require at least 1 contribution to Open Library. :)

Contributions might include code / PRs or code reviews, design, improvements to our documentation / wiki organization, fixes to book catalog data, adding new issues, QA testing.

I have installed Open Library dev environment setup using docker successfully and I want to work on this issue #1986 but I don't know how to go about it. That is to reproduce the error on my local machine and getting the source code.
