OSR134 WikiCite 2018 – Enjoy the Community [EN]

As in the last 2 years, Konrad visited the WikiCite event again and took the opportunity to do a couple of interviews with participants.

“WikiCite 2018 is a 3-day conference, summit, and hack day dedicated to the vision of creating an open repository of bibliographic data to support the citation and fact-checking needs of Wikimedia projects, and possibly, to serve as an open infrastructure for research, education, and information quality across the web.”

WikiCite draws a quite a diverse crowd, so this episodes gives a number of voices from the “event floor”. After a short introduction to the idea behind the event you’ll be introduced to quite a number of participants sharing their background and motivation to take part in WikiCite 2018. And if you ever wandered what goes on in a hackathon, you’ll hear about it too as Konrad interviewed some of the participants from the hackathon at day 3. Enjoy!

OSR128 Library Carpentry with Chris Erdmann [EN]

In the last episode we talked about The Carpentries, the joint initiative comprising the Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry. In this episode we’ve invited Chris Erdmann to talk to us about the third well-known Carpentry out there (not being part of The Carpentries yet): Library Carpentry. Together with Chris, who is the current Library Carpentry Community and Development Director, we dive into what Library Carpentry is, how it came to being, what it does and where it heads to.
