Hackers at Cambridge workshops are developed by the community. Behind every workshop is a team of people who have committed their time to making it the best it can be.
The presenter leads the production of the content for the workshop and is the person in the spotlight on the day of the workshop.
The editor is the primary source of feedback on the workshop content. They work closely with the presenter to make sure the workshop is polished, clear, and appropriate for the target audience
The organiser is the person that coordinates with departments, venues, graphics designers and web developers to make sure that the audience knows about the workshop and that we have a place to run it.
Demonstrators are people who develop an understanding of the content before the workshop and come along to offer in-person help to the attendees. The presence of demonstrators at workshops is something that really sets this format apart from lectures or textbooks.
Focus Groups are small groups that volunteer to provide early feedback on the workshop. The focus group don't necessarily have prior knowledge of the topic. This really puts the presenter's explanations to the test and helps to make the content clearer for the target audience.
Getting involved in workshopping is a great motivation to learn new topics and a rewarding way to improve your teaching, writing and public speaking skills.
