Session proposal: creating a Community DH Center or Tech Hub

Borrowing the idea from the many “community cycling centers” around the U.S., I’d like to develop a plan to establish either a virtual, traveling, or brick and mortar center that would offer free/low cost help with programming, database management, web development etc.

While there is something to be said for a “DIY” ethos in DH, I think this notion really limits the participation of a large portion of the possible community – especially those who don’t come to the table with technical expertise and/or local expert resources.
