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!

Goals:

  • 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.
