Join the Fall DH Challenge #bdhwgchallenge

Hi all,

Some of us wanted to continue the spirit of the BDHWG summer challenge group throughout this fall semester. Need a little community and motivation to work on your dh projects? Curious about what others are doing? Join the Fall DH Challenge Group!

Every other Friday we will meet at the D-lab collaboratory to work on our specific DH goals, help each other trouble shoot issues, and keep each other motivated throughout the semester. Everyone and all types of goals are welcomed.

The first working day is this Friday 9/25, 11AM-1PM. Bring a lunch and your DH goals!


Be part of a support group who will set concrete academic, DH, and professional goals and motivate one another throughout the semester. Summer challenge is open to all.

Open rules:
1. Set realistic, small, practical goals related to DH or general academia to be completed every two weeks. (Deadlines/D-lab check in dates: 9/25, 10/9, 10/16 (BDHWG Hackerspace), 10/23, 11/6, 11/20, 12/4)
2. Post your goals to this google doc and check off your accomplishments throughout the semester.
3. Come work at D-lab every other Friday 11AM-1PM. If you cannot make it, communicate and motivate one another through the chat function on google docs (right side) or write comments in the ‘smiley face emoticon’ columns. Communicate on twitter with #bdhwgchallenge

4. If you need the extra motivation, check off on the google doc that you will submit a $10 monetary commitment stating that you will work on your goals (lest have the money go towards a group victory money pot).
