@_slack_hotosm_U02UGTTM4DV:matrix.orgNathaniel Deaton Greetings HOTOSM. I'm Nathaniel Deaton and I'm at the University of Kentucky's New Map Plus Program. I have a background in GIS in archaeology, also known as cultural resource management. I have been pursuing web technologies for front-end cartography and have been getting to know the field over the last few years. I'm interested in pursuing my thesis project and would like to get involved with crisis mapping projects. I'd like to add that I am interested in digital humanities projects where effective mapping tools can bring communities together, build stronger bonds, aid with communication in times of disaster, and work on challenging puzzles that can offer better data and policy decisions. I am open to talking privately about this subject if anyone would be interested in collaborating on a project. 19:32:24

Hi Nathanial! It is nice to meet you. I might be able to help. So you are looking for a thesis project specifically or more general work on projects?

@_slack_hotosm_U02V5V18ARY:matrix.orgCastro Mbithi Hi, I am Castro, and I look forward to learning a lot from this group. I’m a developer at LD Talent, a project born out of Stanford University. It's a tool that helps you find diverse vetted developers and helps you manage them in an efficient and transparent way. Free Trial Details: The platform gives you ~5 free hours to try them before hiring them for contract or full-time roles. To see how incredibly unique LD is, check out these video clips: • [~1m] an overview of the platform and vetting • [~30s] transparent work sessions • [~1m] data on developers, i.e. productivity and responsiveness • [~3m] interviewing tips and time estimation • [~1m] budget control Diversity meets Capitalism: Our mission is to help teams become stronger by encouraging them to drop location biases and constraints that unknowingly and implicitly exclude qualified, motivated, and efficient people of color from impactful roles they are perfect for. These knowledge workers are undervalued and overlooked by industry, creating an opportunity for a new type of global collaboration, given the rise of remote distributed teams in the new normal. We are always looking for BRUTALLY HONEST feedback :) 14:18:22

@_slack_hotosm_U02UYTWKE5T:matrix.orgVinkonaHB Hi guys, I'm Vinkona on osm and Anna in real life. I've been volunteering with the German Red Cross since 2007 and was invited to one of their Mapathons about 1.5 years ago, and have been mapping ever since. I studied linguistics, so I had never had anything to do with GIS before. 19:15:13

@_slack_hotosm_U02V51ZTGFP:matrix.orgJigme Tenzin (Bhutan) Hi, all! I am Jigme Tenzin from Bhutan with OSM ID M5610020 and I am a GIS Analyst with professional experience of 10+ years in Surveying, GIS and Remote Sensing. I am planning to carry out a mapping exercise using the OSM platform. Since the features here in Bhutan is very different from the rest of the world. Hence, I am planning, with a group of friends, to do documentation on the feature classification. I am looking forward to a group to provide me with support on it. Unfortunately, I am not an expert on OSM mapping apart from a few classes I attended in the past. My goal is to map the entire Bhutan by teaching local government staff and youth on the OSM. I would appreciate if anyone here in the group could advise me on how I should go about achieving my goal to map Bhutan? For your kind information, we don't have as such an OSM Community in Bhutan ( so far I know) and I would like to take a lead in establishing one. Looking forward to hearing and interacting with experts here. Great week ahead!! 05:55:43
