Feedback and communication

https://gitter.im/what-they-forgot/wtf-2019-rsc is our chat room. Good for live chat during the workshop. Feel free to ignore if you are overstimulated already.

Issues <-- all are encouraged to open issues as we go. This is actually tremendously helpful to us! Examples of issue-worthy thoughts:

  • Glitches in the instructions or materials that we need to fix, for current workshop or future
  • Missing content that we identify
  • Great questions or sidebar discussions that we should consider formalizing and recording
  • Questions that are too specific or technical to answer in real-time

Resources

Written versions of content are under open development here:
