Tue Apr 18 13:07:10 UTC 2017
As a reminder, we’re holding a community chat in *1 hour (14:00 UTC)* in
the HOT Slack #field-campaigner channel. This will be a text chat and we’ve
assembled a short agenda and document to walk through:
We’re going to take the time to talk through the problems that we’re trying
to solve and discuss any technical or non-technical considerations for each
of these problems.
If you can’t join, feel free to jump into the document to contribute.
Please add your name next to your comment and we can follow up.
