These past months, I discovered the magic of being heavily involved in conference LOCs, for Cool Stars 19 and the Swedish astronomy days.
At so many points I had a recurring thought coming to me:
it would be great if there was a place where people would share the tools they create when they host conference. So much time saved ...
This would encompass frameworks for websites -- even though these days it's easy enough to create a nice one easily -- but also registration forms and registration handling -- if you don't trust google, creating name badges, budget spreadsheets starters, name it. A conference starterpack of sorts.
I spent a bit of time doing this name-badge editing bash script, I am sure some folk somewhere could use it. But it is a tiny thing on its own. If we had a common place to put these tools, I guess it would make a difference
Is there some interest for doing it? Did you create some tools that you would like to share? Should we do it?
