First we need to define "newcomer"This is a session for newcomers and veterans - what kind of support would help you to stay interested or get your projects done.
Then we need to talk about how to get them in the door, get them onboarded, keep them interested, retain them
What can we do to make volunteer for our technical communities easier, more fun, more engaging, and better?
I would love to talk about this more in advance of the hackathon.More details coming soon....
Run by: Birgit, I would also like help thinking about and running this session - so if anybody wants to get involved just comment on the task! Lea & Rachel
