Suggestion for dissemination: Monthly public hackathon/office hours via zoom


This is an suggestion for an idea similar to the similar to the annual MP Workshops.

Perhaps once per month, we can have a set of contributors to the Materials Project volunteer to have a panel to answer questions and guide users through how to use pymatgen, fireworks or Materials Project website or maybe hold a public hackathon. This would all be done via video conference (zoom?) and recorded, then uploaded to the Materials Project youtube website for future users. Anyone with a Materials Project account can join. This allows users and volunteer “TAs” to share their screen and demonstrate problems/solutions on the website or their ipynb.
