First Tuesday Hangout Nights

Mai Sutton
Mai Sutton Public Seen by 157

The last Tuesday night meeting of every night have been reserved for newcomers, as said on the Omni calendar, but we really haven't observed that at all. We are using this as an opportunity to revisit how we do meetings.

On the meeting on 22 Jan, we discussed doing something like "Sudomesh - Business Meeting" on most nights, then "Sudomesh - Hangout + Newcomer Night" on every 1st Tuesday of the month. This hang out night will be very casual, will be opportunity for newcomers to meet others involved in the project and ask questions in a casual setting. We'll encourage people to bring food + drinks in a potluck style and maybe even break out into groups later on.

Change 1st Tuesday meetings to Sudo Mesh Hangout + Newcomers Night Closed 7:01pm - Saturday 2 Feb 2019

  • Change 1st Tuesday night meetings to be "Sudo Mesh Hangout + Newcomers Night"
  • The rest of the meetings of the month will be "Sudo Mesh Business + Planning Meeting" to reflect the more operational nature of those meetings.

Please vote as soon as possible so I can change the calendar this week to reflect this change if we agree to it.

I think it's worth trying this out. We should make time for us to just hang out, relax, and welcome new people in a relaxed, chill atmosphere.

Maybe because we have break out groups at the end of most of our meetings that i think semi-work because a lot of people leave right afterwards, we can have break out groups in the beginning after introductions? A tour of the SudoMesh cage and equipment? overview of software and/or github? Then after, a small meet up somewhere like ice cream or cafe something?

Do we know all the places this needs to be updated? I can think of the Omni calendar, the wiki, and peoplesopen.net.

+1000! and maybe we should work out a buddy system so new folks have a direct point of contact and mentor.. which would have the additional benefit of helping ensure new folks don't drop out after one or two meetings :)

Sounds good as long as:
- it doesn't stop discussion of action items that need... um... action
- newcomers who wander in on other Tuesdays aren't booted out - they will just have to understand it won't be geared to them.
But I think that's how it goes anyway.
