8 November Wikimedia Open Tech Chats 29 November
What 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, November 15, 2012, 20:30 UTC (12:30 PST), 60–90 minutes
Food It's a brown bag - bring your own :)

  • Follow along via screensharing as a developer fixes a bug, including investigation, git commit, and closing the Bugzilla ticket
  • Note: I've been working on a video of just this for a different project, and I like the idea generally, but I think it's better when the developer is new to the project. Keep an eye out? --MarkTraceur (talk) 02:04, 14 November 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
