Point 1: Urgent matter - Moving into the New space

Practical Questions

Is the date confirmed? 24-25 June?
RA asked Christophe for confirmation - 2nd floor still very bare yesterday...

Move: Action plan

  • Moving team

How did it work for the move down to the 1st floor?

Who will be 'lead' member, to contact everyone and make sure we have enough people?

From EGA sign up list: Gianpaolo, Anne-Laure, Océane, Olivier Emery, Rachel and Vanessa, said they could help during the moving weekend (24-25th June? - RA asked Christophe for confirmation)

  • Brief Design of the Space: plan to date, group adjustments
  • New stuff: Racks? Sofa?

? No new stuff before we move (and test the space for at least 2 months).


  • Day-long UC event 27 June. Who is signed up?
  • Tidy up, participative hacks and show off. (visitors!)
  • Hackuarium special event seems like a good idea??

Notes on Workshopology

  • Each "Workshop Leader" is responsible of the team planning, budget (costs and pricing), materials, participants.
  • So far, response from the future "workshopology board":
    • Oceane Patiny, Luc Patiny, Olivier Emery, Gustavo Santamaria, Rachel Aronoff, Roger Erismann, Vanessa Lorenzo, Sam Sulaimanov.
    • Needs to be broken down by topic.
    • Best would be to have 2 workshops a month for the 6 months of the winter (October-March) -> 12 dates (each workshop can happen twice -> 6 workshops.
