- Booth at Dragoncon? Billy investigating.
- Let's start looking at new spaces
- We want more flexibility with what we can do
- Easy access for new people
- More open
- We have a demographic problem
- Too many white dudes
- We are allies though, we want to fix the problem
- Jennifer: most of the content is technical
- Gordon: we are up against a dynamic problem that is bigger than us
- Michael: more diverse content
- Nicole: came because it's close
- We need more content
- Michael: art related, graphic design, adobe suite
- Gordon: doesn't want to teach dependence, you guys need to learn gimp and inkscape - not every attendee can afford a license fee to adobe
- Nicole: wants to learn front end web dev, html, css, js
- Gordon to Nicole: you said you are a grapihc designer, do you use the adobe suite?
- Nicole: no, i use gimp and inkscape on linux
- Gordon and Nicole do one of those handshake hug things
- Gordon: (to nicole) can you explain to Michael why we don't want to teach dependence?
- lot's of people talking about shit
- Seems like consensus is that everyone wants to be more inclusive
- We need more beginner content - our classes are too geared towards intermediate to advanced topics
- Programming intro might be a good start
- Culture is good at core, just not diverse enough
- We're gonna come up with more content and solutions to this
