Hi Everyone,

What: a webinar - Data quality, usage, and issue tracking using GitHub
Where: http://idigbio.adobeconnect.com/datamgmt

A quick reminder that this webinar is tomorrow,
When: Thursday 23 April 2015 from 4 to 5 PM EDT

*Abstract:* VertNet mobilizes biodiversity data (not just vertebrates) 
for a broad spectrum of natural history collections. Part of VertNet's 
mission is to help data publishers in every way we can. One way to help 
is to set up, demonstrate, and use/a common //centralized reporting 
mechanism that //makes it easy for data publishers to receive and manage 
feedback about their published data/. GitHub provides all of the 
necessary infrastructure to do this for free, including version control 
for files, issue tracking, email integration, and an Application 
Programming Interface (API). /We will discuss and demon//str//ate how 
VertNet uses each of these aspects of GitHub to capture and manage user 
feedback, usage statistics, and bulk data quality reports/.

Thanks @VertNetOrg for putting this together.

See you there!
