RDA Hackathon on machine-actionable Data Management Plans (maDMPs) took place between 27th and 29th May 2020, and gathered 71 participants from 21 countries from all around the world. With this blog post, we would like to summarize the event and share some insights on the feedback we received as organizers (RDA Austria).

For most of us the easiest way to get to Gaborone was flying via Johannesburg. Before I set off for my first Africa travel I read a lot about travelling to Africa, especially about safety in South Africa, Botswana and neighbouring countries. Reviews, especially of the OR Tambo airport were very bad: luggage missing, lots of pick pockets, etc.
At the plenary in Berlin I have met many newcomers who were excited about the RDA, but did not really know in what way they could engage into its activities. Where to start and what to do apart from singing up to a mailing list? These were the most common questions.

If you ever wondered what the RDA really is, whether you fit in there, and why would it make sense for you to participate in the plenary meeting, then you should keep on reading. In this blog post I will address these questions by discussing my experiences of the 8th RDA Plenary meeting in Denver.
