Subject: Invitation: Mozilla Working Open Workshop @ KU Oct. 16/17

KU Libraries is partnering with Mozilla to bring the Mozilla Working Open Workshop (WOW) to KU on October 16th/17th. WOWs are a highly customized and agile two-day event for researchers to learn, share, and connect around open research best practices designed to improve research collaborations and ensure access to research data and findings, thereby speeding the pace of discovery.

Workshop modules will cover the essentials of designing an open project, using collaboration tools such as GitHub, sharing research products as a default, and fostering an active community around an open project. It is hands-on and project-based, including lots of time for participants to make real, meaningful progress on their projects, and to network and collaborate across projects and disciplines. WOWs have been previously hosted in Montreal, Boston, Austin, Berlin, Portland, and Cape Town.

WOWs work best for attendees with a specific project to advance, since project work time is built in.

If this sounds interesting, please register by October 9th via EventBrite:https://www.eventbrite.com/e/mozilla-working-open-workshop-tickets-37918290628

NOTE: a 100% REFUNDABLE deposit of $20 is required to hold your space in this very limited workshop (35 seats). If you do not attend or cancel within 24 hours of the workshop, you will not be eligible for the refund.

"Modern-day generations thus face the contrast between the growing weight of reasons
to act only in one's narrow self-interest and the growing necessity,
 in an increasingly interdependent world,
 for sophisticated forms of cooperation that require a leaven of public good."
