First Wikimedia Open Tech Chats 30 October
What Frequent (weekly?) open meetings of the Wikimedia technology community to discuss technical issues, architectural challenges and process improvements.
How We're trying a combination of Google Hangout on Air (an open YouTube stream from the 6th floor of the WMF office) + potential additional Hangout guest speakers + IRC for text-based communication. There's no attendance limit. You don't need Hangout to participate -- if you can play YouTube videos and join IRC, you're fine.
When Thursday, October 18, 2012, 19:30 UTC (12:30 PDT), 60–90 minutes
Food It's a brown bag - bring your own :)



  • How do we integrate and deploy code? How do we grant deployer permission, and who do we grant it to? Is our deployment tooling good enough, and if not, how can we improve it (who will help)? What do other organizations (e.g. GitHub, Facebook, Mozilla) do that we don't?

  7. Dan Andreescu (talk). I propose we talk about git-flow now that we're on git, I can give a quick overview.
    Thank you for the git-flow idea. I've used it for one month with success on Zed, a personal project. I discovered a successful git branching model when I were browsing Git workflows to find schema to explain our own Wikimedia workflow. --Dereckson (talk) 07:44, 8 October 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
