Open (!) science


(What are the keywords that surface when we think about open science projects?)

Aims and goals


(What can we achieve through doing a science project openly?)

How to get there

Technical tools


(For sharing content, code, and data)

Fostering a community


(How do you find and keep collaborators?)

Social techniques


(Hackathons, workshops, things you've been to or organized)

Documentation


(Often the first things people will interact with)

Recognition


(Leadership, giving credit, supporting the community) 

Not a 'set it and forget it' thing
