One of the ways to help with a Join Day is to have clear onboarding paths for that particular subproject or team.

One of the first tasks for our soon-to-be Outreachy Intern will be establishing onboarding badge series' for each team and subproject! As an example of this, we have the "bootstrapped" series, which is in progress, but includes a number of common badges that help to introduce new contributors generally to a number of aspects of the project. (See: https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-badges/ticket/409)

Even if we don't have a badge series identified yet, having the steps listed to join a particular group will help with both creating the series, and engaging with new contributors in an event like a Join-Day.

That's my $.02,

Hey all,

Meant to send this out last night but I ended up forgetting. Anyways, Gabri poked in IRC that now that F23 is out, we can begin moving forward with executing one of these first Join-Days to promote activity in the different subgroups across Fedora.

We mentioned somewhere that Marketing might be the best place to run the first Join-Day as that was an area that at least a few of us are directly involved in and it might make it easier for us to try doing the first one. Later on, we could begin reaching out to other parts of the project, e.g. engineering / development groups, etc.

With that in mind, how do we want to go about poaching this first Join-Day? Assuming Marketing is the subgroup that we want to do first, would we want to make it a very general marketing Join-Day, or more specific, e.g. Fedora Magazine Join-Day?

Once we can decide what subgroup / parts of a subgroup we want to target first, I think we can begin making steps toward planning the details for how it will work.
