Do any of you code or have interest in learning to code (R, Python, Matlab, GIS, SQL, etc.)? Are you wishing to develop your skills in statistics, data analysis, and visualization? There is a group working to build a community for coders in the cultural heritage field to ask questions, provide learning resources, and collaborate. You can read more about the group in our charter here:
ConCode Charter - https://mkpreventive.files.wordpress.com/2020/12/concode_charter.pdf
ConCode host monthly meetings and encourage presentations where people can work together to solve coding problems. The idea is that this will be a space to discuss different topics, highlight/present your work, and exchange views on all aspects of coding in conservation. As many are new to coding this will be a 'safe-space' where any questions can be asked, no matter how small or large and work together to answer them. Here is the link to the Slack channel where the community resides:

This meeting will include an introductory presentation on how to use Github by Nathan McMinn of Conserv and an opportunity to meet other members to discuss goals for this initiative.
