Last week o2r team member Daniel co-organised a workshop at the 21st AGILE International Conference on Geographic Information Science in Lund, Sweden.
The workshop went very well and Daniel together with his colleagues was able to spread the word about reproducible research and Open Science.
They are pretty sure they convinced some new scientists to reconsider their habits!
Daniel wrote a short report about the workshop: https://o2r.info/reproducible-agile/2018/#workshop-report
The workshop series will probably be continued at the next AGILE conference in Limassol, Cyprus.
For o2r participating in such a workshop is a great way to stay in touch with users of reproducibility tools and practices, and to give back to the communities not only with technology but with education.

This article is cross-posted in German on the senseBox blog.
It’s the time of the year to make resolutions and to see beyond one’s own nose.
For o2r team member Daniel, this meant to explore what he could do with his brand new senseBox:home and the awesome BinderHub instead of putting it on the back burner.
Building on a deep stack of Open Hardware, Free and Open Source Software, and Open Data, he created…
