Get started at 2i2c#

This is a guide and checklist for new team members of 2i2c to get oriented, and to make sure that you’re set up with all the resources you need to start contributing!

A note about staff vs. non-staff

The information here (and in the Team Compass) applies to anybody that is “on the 2i2c team”. That means both staff at CS&S, as well as non-staff team members that may work in other institutions. However, there may be some steps here that are only relevant to CS&S staff.

Onboarding process#

New 2i2c team members are onboarded in order to make sure that the following conditions are met:

  • They know where to look for certain information

  • They have access to all of the accounts and services we use

  • They feel welcome and excited to be a part of the team

  • They have an understanding of what 2i2c is currently up to

  • They have enough information to get started

When a new team member joins, follow these two steps first:

  1. Identify an Onboarding Champion. This is somebody that will help guide the onboarding process for our new team member. Their job is to carry out the process described in the onboarding issue template.

  2. Open an onboarding issue in the Team Compass. This issue will track the onboarding process, and serves as the Source of Truth for steps to take in order to onboard a new team member.
