Venue notes[edit]

  • We have floors 1, 2, 4 (en-gb: G, 1, 3).

    • works fine for me personally -- daniel kinzler
    • Me too (bawolff)
    • It broke for me when I stood up --alex Please don't get up, its dangerous up there. sumana made me
    • Is anybody still having problems, now that we are a bit more spread?
  • we need more chairs
    • there are empty chairs at the front...
      • let's move them to the back then :P
  • we need more power strips
    • tell Rachel / Quim where, might be EASYFIX
    • How safe is it to have 6-7 of them chained anyway?
  • we need more tables
    • this might get better in breakout sessions -- if we put more tables in the plenary sessions then we have less space altogether

Introduction[edit]

Live IRC chat: use #wikimedia-dev Twitter TAG: #MWSummit2014 (#MWSummit was taken by some cancer-related event)

Think about how we build software, not just what we build. Consider radical options!

DOCUMENT EVERYTHING! If it doesn't make it to the mailing lists with pics and on reddit in the end, it didn't happen.

Changes to the schedule to be agreed in the Agenda bashing & Breakout Planning sessions.

RFCs supposed to get quick resolution: apply to the RFC Roulette on Friday.

Everyone be friendly! (but not too friendly)

Introducing non-WMF attendants[edit]

The purpose of this introduction is to make sure that the faces and agendas of non-WMF contributors are known by the rest (since we have a majority of WMF employees here, and they have many chances to meet regularly).

Presentations by groups of interest:

  • Core
  • Third parties
  • Wikia
  • Internationalization
  • TitleValue (Wikidata, actually)
  • Frontend.

Sumana, could you add names here (ones from the list you showed)?
