Join the Wikimedia development community in Berlin.
Wikimedia community developers and sysadmins were invited to Berlin Hackathon 2012 to collaborate and share ideas. Videos of the Lua tutorial, secure coding tutorial, Wikidata intro, and step-by-step Git-Gerrit installation are now online, and the Gadgets/ResourceLoader video is on Vimeo. Check out the survey results and retrospective!

Goals and topics for the Hackathon.
This is the premier event for the MediaWiki and Wikimedia technical community. We'll be hacking, designing, and socialising.
Our goals for the event are to bring 100-150 people together, with lots of people who have not attended such events before. User scripts, gadgets, API use, Toolserver, Wikimedia Labs, mobile, structured data, templates -- if you are into any of these things, we want you to come!
More outreach to variety of people - aim for 120-130 participants (judging that ~100 came last year)
Get Lua training for anyone who wants it
Inform people about ResourceLoader 2 & new Gadgets support, train JS authors
Get Labs or Toolserver accounts for anyone who wants them
Get at least 5 gadgets/tools/templates/bots developers/authors to get into larger Wikimedia community, stay in it 3 months after event
Facilitate chapter tech community
Keep last year's quality of experience while upping attendance
Better social events that help build relationships, facilitate mingling.
