Recognizing Contributions#

There are a variety of ways that we would like to recognize community contributions to hackweeks.

Website Presence#

We invite all people who join us in organizing and hosting a hackweek to be included in our “Meet the team” section of each hackweek website.

We use this YAML markdown template for each team member.

- title: 
  - name: 
  - name: 
  - icon: github
    icon_pack: fab

Here is an example of how the text you include in this template gets rendered on the website:

You must precisely follow the indentation and spacing layout shown here, so that the website correctly interprets the YAML format. Copying and existing team member’s text and editing is an easy way to guarantee this

  • We encourage everyone to use their GitHub avatar as the source of their personal photograph.

  • Provide your GitHub username, together with the full url, for the link key under social.

  • Acceptable user groups (roles) can be found here.

Uploading to the website#

To include your content on the website, please make a pull request to the team.yaml file located in the website for the event you’re involved with. For example, here is the file for the ICESat-2 2022 hackweek.

When you are just editing text, using GitHub’s online text editor is very convenient: Screen Shot 2022-06-07 at 3 07 21 PM

It’s best practice to create pull requests from ‘feature’ branches. So commit your changes on a branch other than the ‘main’ branch: Screen Shot 2022-06-07 at 3 08 02 PM

Online Tutorials#

All of our tutorials are recorded and shared on the eScience Institute’s youtube channel. We encourage tutorial leads to link to these videos from their social media accounts and websites as a way to demonstrate their teaching competencies.

Referrals and Feedback#

The eScience Institute’s hackweek as a service program will provide references for past organizers upon request. We will also offer feedback to help promote your professional development. Contact us for more information.
