On our last Frictionless Data community call on April 29th we had an interactive session with our great Frictionless Data Fellows: Daniel Alcalá López, Kate Bowie, Katerina Drakoulaki, Anne Lee, Jacqueline Maasch, Evelyn Night and Samantha Wilairat.
The Fellows are early career researchers recruited to become champions of the Frictionless Data tools and approaches in their field. During the nine months of their fellowship, which started in August 2020, the Fellows learned how to use Frictionless tools in their domains to improve reproducible research workflows, and how to advocate for open science. It was a real pleasure to work with this amazing cohort. Sadly the fellowship is coming to an end, but we are sure we will hear a lot from them in the future.
If you would like to hear directly from the Fellows about their experience with Frictionless Data and what the fellowship meant for them, you can have a look at the presentation they made during the community call here below:

# News from the Community
Oleg Lavrovsky presented instant APIs for small Frictionless Data-powered apps. Here (opens new window) is an example app developed during the latest Swiss OpenGLAM hackathon. To know more about it, you can also check:
- The source code (opens new window) which uses DataFlows (opens new window) for the aggregation, and the Pandas Data Package reader (opens new window) as the basis for filtering.
- The project page (opens new window) and slides which outline the motivation to collect and homogenize electronic art archives.
- An earlier attempt (opens new window) which involves a city tree catalogue. The team is also building on this approach in several projects at cividi (opens new window).
# Join us next month!
Our next meeting will be on May 27th. We will hear a presentation from Simon Tyrrell on his Tool Fund project - Frictionless Data for Wheat. You can sign up here (opens new window).
