# 20% project
We have a 20% rule that was copied from Google's engineering team: you are allowed to spend 20% of your time (effectively one day a week) on some project that is not highest priority, and it can be anything you come up with, as long as there is some perspective of usefulness for OlinData (in the widest sense of the word). For instance (and this is just an example), Walter happened to have registered a domain called <http://divesitebuddy.com> years ago, which in his mind was going to be a tripadvisor for divesites worldwide. Richard, our Drupal expert back then took on himself to start designing and building this website and he blogged about his experiences weekly. Go and search back in the blog history if you want to see some of the results. If you think that that is what you would love to spend some time on, you could do that for your 20% work. Also, the 20% project is optional. If you feel like you want to not make use of the opportunity, that's cool too.
You're free to divide the number of hours assigned anyway you want. That said, it would be nice if you spread things out a bit. If you work better in evenings, mornings, weekends, etc. That is fine with us. The communication part we listed in <culture.md> should make it possible for us to work asynchronously.

# How do we organise this?
It is important to us that you take the maximum advantage of the 20% rule and we are very interested in helping you to achieve this. Before you can get started with your project, we ask that you write up a small proposal on what you aim to work on. Discuss that with your direct lead for approval so we can determine together if and how this would work. We do this using periodic meetings where we discuss your next 20% project or follow up on your current progress. These meetings are used to set short-term goals regarding the 20% project. The meeting frequency is open to personal preference but we advise to have, at least, one each trimester.
