Suggested First Tasks
We reached out to The Turing Way and asked them what they suggest freshly minted rigor champions interested in becoming involved with their community do to get a sense of the culture and vision. These are listed below, and we strongly recommend giving them a shot!
Share your story! (~5 to 10 minutes)
The Turing Way is all about building communal knowledge, and a key part of that is sharing your experience in making your research reproducible and things you have learned that you think others should know. Sharing your story is a good first step towards joining the project!
Stop by the Café! (~5 minutes to 2 hours)
The regular Collaboration Cafés hosted by The Turing Way are a great way to dip your toes into this community. These are virtual co-working spaces that are held every two weeks on the first and third Wednesdays of each month for 2 hours.
Hang by the fire!
The Fireside Chats may well be the coziest way to get involved. Imagined as “conversations among friends and colleagues taking place around a warm inviting fireplace”, these are online events featuring invited speakers, intended to facilitate discussions on topics of broader interest, create shared spaces for cross-community collaborations and build opportunities for exchanging common experiences and resources.
Spread the word!
Like any community effort, The Turing Way relies on the passion of its community, and so spreading the word by bringing the project up with others, discussing it over lab lunch, or presenting on it at your next lab meeting is always appreciated!
Do your part!
At its core, The Turing Way is about collaboration, which means that the best way for you to get involved is to help build this book! Whether you fix a typo, open an issue, or simply make a comment — no contribution is too small!
