We talked at the Istanbul Offsite about the need to get more non-work collaboration time in the diary to build relationships and have a chance to try new things.
We’re proposing the below events schedule covering the following ~year. This is tentative at this point in time, just floating to see what you all think and if there’s anything you’d like to see on there (re: the Offsite, as you can probably imagine - its going ahead isn’t guaranteed and would be dependent on how our financial situation develops in the future given it’s past our current planning, but our aim will very much be to hold one if we can).
All events would be remote (aside from the Offsite):
- Early Dec 2019 - Documentation Week
- Mid Dec 2019 - End of year holidays
- Feb 2020 - Build week
- May 2020 - Community week (collaboration with other projects, and/or for good causes)
- July 2020 - [in-person] Offsite
It would be nice to tack on the Offsite to Devcon VI except there are a bunch of as-yet-unknown variables that might mean it’s not optimal (distance from core contributors, location cost, length of time since last Offsite, etc.) We could also consider running it alongside EthBerlin (~August 2020).
We can flesh out plans for all these events closer to the date, but we’d love to hear your thoughts on them in the meantime! Closer to any Offsite, we’ll check in again with a poll to find the most optimum week around everyone’s availability.
