Thank you to everyone who took part in the recent survey that I posted online. The results are here.
Around a third of the Entice list responded. Several things that strike me from this survey:
- Presentations are not necessarily people's favourite means of learning and sharing.
- The majority of people describe their proficiency in developing in Drupal as 'beginner' or 'intermediate'.
- Some people would like to see Entice deal with web content management issues at CERN beyond Drupal.
I'm not sure yet how to best to cater for this last point - if you have suggestions please let me know. More on this in future.
Cath Noble, Cian and I had a quick brainstorm yesterday about the other two points. We thought it would be good to try a new 'hack' format for meetings. The idea is to set up a more frequent, less formal and more participatory format. Something that is closer to the Drupalcamp and hack sprint meetings that the Drupal community itself uses.
Please join us for the first Entice 'hack meeting' at 4pm Wednesday 16 April at the end of the new part of restaurant 1 (the area with the high tables).
Come to help others (there will be people fairly new to Drupal who have projects they want to get started), get ideas, solve a problem, or simply to see what's happening. We have a couple of ideas for mini projects to get started on, such as improving the documentation area of the Entice website - we'll see who turns up and what people want to work on. I look forward to seeing you there!
We'll try and set this meeting to run every two weeks - I'll send a reminder email for the next one.
