This section introduces you to the tools that enable team assembly, global communication, coordination with prompt hosts and nodes, and managing official contributions throughout the Collabathon.
We encourage all participants to login to all respective environments and tools. Nodes are particularly encouraged to register their local participants on these tools.
The main website
The Collabathon Main Website presents up-to-date information to the general public. Use it to sign up or register and to access information about current events.
Dialogues and Presentations Rooms
We use Zoom to hold online discussions. If you don't have the application please install it. Links to access dialogues on the main website.
We use this Discordserver as the communication tool for participants and teams to coordinate and discuss. If you don't have an account, please create one.
This Collabathon GitBook acts as the Participant's Manual for the event. We also use it to register our contributions, notes from Discussions and results from our Hacks. To contribute to this GitBook you can use this link to register as a writer. If you don't have a GitBook account yet, please create one.
We strongly encourage participants to harvest our online discussions. During every discussion there is an individual with the role of harvester. You can ask the harvester to provide you the link to the shared document to help taking notes. The link to these documents will be provided here, on GitBook.
Prompts and task management
If during your Hacks you contribute code directly to the Open Climate Platform, you access the following GitHub repositories:
Main repository for creating projects and contributing code in the Open Climate Project.
GitHub - YaleOpenLab/openclimate-demo-fe: Openclimate frontend - Save the world!
Open Climate FrontEnd GitHub Repository
GitHub - YaleOpenLab/openclimate-demo: Open Climate Repo
Open Climate BackEnd GitHub Repository
CoMakery Team Assembly & Prompt Contribution Management
CoMakery is not currently being used for onboarding all collabathon participants or for forming all collabathon teams - as it was in earlier collabathons. We are working with CoMakery to develop functionalities for team assembly, funding integration, economic project incentives and project management processes for a more robust collabathon digital environment in the future.
Although not required for the collabathon, we have used CoMakery to assemble teams around prompts, help in the project/prompt management, and track contributions to projects. In the fall of 2019 the whole Collabathon was represented as a 'Mission' on CoMakery where each prompt became a project related to the Open Climate Collabathon Mission. Within in each prompt project the milestones were represented as a 'Batch of Tasks'. On CoMakery 'Tasks' represent specific contribution opportunities.
GitHub software development focused work with tasks or prizes paid in Ethereum tokens can also leverage the GitCoin ecosystem which is integrated into GitHub.
