Open Community Hackathon for Sustainability Week, Saturday 21th September

On 21 September 2019 we are joining the European Day of Sustainable Communities. #SustainableCommunity #EDSC19

The day celebrates local communities taking action for a zero-carbon, regenerative and inclusive Europe.  All those who are catalysing transformation in the face of ecological and climate breakdown are invited to become co-creators of the day.

We are hosting a free community hackathon. Feel free to work on any projects you want, but try and have a sustainability theme. Repair something that is broken instead of throwing it out or make use of recycled materials. Feel free to stay around for our social evening. Bring a project and your laptop. More details here.

We invite you to join us or to organise your own event to mark the day – it can be as simple or as ambitious as you like.

Wood-turning for beginners, with Tom Murphy

Come and learn how to turn wood on a lathe with Master Turner, Tom Murphy:

My name is Tom Murphy and I am a wood turner in Dublin. I started turning wood about 4 years ago and discovered I have a talent for it!

In Irish wood turning you are allowed to enter novice competitions for your first 3 years. In my first year, and again in my third year, I won the National Championships and in my guild I won Master Turner of the Year in my first year. (The first time a novice has ever won it)

It should also by a bit of fun and I will tell you the stories of drunkenness, intrigue and high speed death machines while we work!

This demonstration is aimed at absolute beginners with zero knowledge and intended to introduce you to the wonderful (and addictive) world of wood-turning. No prior experience is required.

It should also by a bit of fun and I will tell you the stories of drunkenness, intrigue and high speed death machines while we work!

OpenStreetMap Ireland AGM and General Information Day

OSMI will hold its first AGM since forming a company to represent the community on the 15th of June. The event will be in two sections, starting off at 11am with a short introduction and a demonstration/tutorial for anyone new to open source mapping. After that, there will be a selection of five-minute lightning talks and general discussion up to the 1 pm break. Anyone interested in giving a talk can tweet the organisers @osm_ie.

Then around 2 pm, the formal AGM begins with a detailed report of the work being done behind the scenes. The board that formed the company will step down and hold a vote for the new board. This is an opportunity for anyone interested in joining to help with the administrative/behind the scenes work and help shape the future of how mapping progresses in Ireland.

There will also be an opportunity to join a working group, such as having every house on the island mapped or other high level project and system administration for back-end services.
