Recording of session


The last few years have seen some dramatic changes in the landscape of the MediaWiki community. Initiatives from the Wikimedia Foundation, user groups like the MediaWiki Stakeholders' Group, and individual contributors in organizations around the world have started to take notice - with more activity and involvement from all corners. What has happened recently? What challenges do our community face? What are we missing? Most importantly, what's next?

While no one person has all the answers, I'd like to make a good faith attempt to describe things as they are, and offer up topics for discussion at, and beyond, EMWCon on the state of the MediaWiki community.
