a student-run research organization
Joining WaggleNet is simple. You’re welcomed whenever you feel like joining. Unlike many other student organizations, almost everything we’re doing is open to the world, including you.
Hop by our meetings!
Come find us at our bench at Open Lab, Wednesdays 6:30-8:30 at our meeting or catch a member working there any time!
And check out our code and documentation!
Open to U of I students! Find us on GitHub, and look through our wiki: http://work.wagglenet.org/wiki
Wanna talk to someone?
Ask Jimmy He (email@example.com) or Prof Chris Schmitz (firstname.lastname@example.org)
So what will I get if I actually join as a member?
Just for starters:
So... What are the expectations for members?
Every “sprint” period (which is a 3-week milestone), we’ll review everyone’s membership status. During that period you must have completed:
- – 2 Participation points (attend 2 meetings)
- – 2 Contribution points (by completing Jira stories)
Which is really not a thing if you ever contribute.
Alright, sign me up! What should I do?
Access to ECE Open Lab
You must apply for access at https://openlab.ece.illinois.edu/apply.html, and pass its safety test and complete a safety tour. That gives you basic access to our lab stuff.
Join our Slack group & talk with members!
Sign up for an account here: https://wagglenet.slack.com/signup
You'll find all our active members, mentors, partners and alumni in this group! Don't hesitate to talk to them.
TRY OUT BEFORE APPLYING
Network with WaggleNet members and try out! Discuss your interest and skills with the team leaders, and get a few tasks going. Know what you'll be doing before applying.
- A Jira / Confluence account at work.wagglenet.org
- A GitHub account. It should be your personal one.
A WaggleNet account
You’ll use your WaggleNet account and GitHub account to log into every WaggleNet-owned resource. If you find yourself locked out of our computers, something’s probably up with your membership and you should talk to your team leaders.
