@vhris:matrix.orgChristopher AdrionHello everyone! My name is Chris and I'm new/learning about what the HOT team is and GIS in general. I'm a recent college graduate with a degree in computer programming and information systems. I had only discovered GIS a few month ago and have been trying to educate myself in the field and hopefully land an entry level position as an analyst. I had come across this site and signed up seeing this as an amazing way to help people as well as develop my GIS skills. I started doing beginner level projects just mapping buildings. I had been interested in joining working works and first found more information about the tasking manager team. I set up a quick call with Petya Kangalova and learned quite a bit about the organization however discover that working group wasn't for me. Looking over all of them I believe that Activation group would be the best fit for me. So what would be the best way to get involved? Should I look up the calendar and join the activation group meeting? (I see the next one is on thanksgiving for Americans so I will not be able to attend) Or is there someone I can talk to to get a better idea of this group.14:35:24
