Subject [jira] [Commented] (TRAINING-5) Donation: Github challenges
Date Fri, 03 May 2019 01:14:00 GMT


Craig L Russell commented on TRAINING-5:

Discussing the attached .svg file being appropriate for the training project:

The format is problematic. Files in .svg format cannot reasonably be considered to be source.
The project will need to consider some tool that converts "source" into "image" format in
order to consider such files to be part of the project. Having a pure "graphic" .jpg, .png,
.gif (static) image file that is properly licensed should be fine for inclusion into the project.

The license is problematic. As Justin and I agree, the Octocat image cannot be part of our
distributed materials.

The content is less problematic. If we can agree on a source format: quizzes, exercises and
problems that have an underlying training (educational) objective are surely good material
for training.

> For context - this is following Lars' idea there: []
to simply open a Jira issue for to-be-donated-content. I'm happy to have the process created,
refined and refactored while we go through it. I think it makes sense to do so with a guinea
pig to try things out, happy to be that guinea pig myself.
> Actual donation context: At my dayjob we are currently in the process of lifting company
knowledge about development processes with Git and GitHub. As for several projects Inner Source
best practices were adopted ([|]
we aren't that far from the Apache Way internally.
> One way we are currently trying is to raise awareness of the various Git/Github features
through challenges/ riddles posted close to the coffee machine.
> Essentially those challenges are simply svg files that you can print and fill in. As
such I think they might make for a good sandbox to develop our content donation processes
in a test first way.
> Currently all challenges are employer-branded. Happy to drop that/ have that white-labeled.
> Kudos to [] for helping me out with his design skills - he helped
arrange the sheets in a way that looked much less clumsy than my own first try and still kept
space for a Monalisa Octocat.
> Caveat: Graph was inspired by Gitlab's Git cheat-sheet.
