Invite: GOSH compass/roadmap writing session August 6th

Hi everyone,

As a next step on the GOSH roadmap @jcm80 @unixjazz and I are convening a writing session on Sunday, August 6 from 11am-1pm ET.

The goal of this writing session will be to end up with a final flow for the document (see the suggestion from @unixjazz posted below that meshes with the suggestion from @paz of a compass and roadmap), an understanding of what content is missing and still needs to be compiled and collected and a clear set of next steps on completing the document.

Please send a quick response to this thread or message me directly to let us know if you are able to make next Sunday. Jenny and Luis Felipe will be leading the writing session. I’ll send call information out later in the week to people who are able to make it.

Thanks, Shannon
