@Rfarrand (WMF), I feel like this list would benefit from a column that lists organisers (organisations, not individuals, mostly) in a more explicit way, also to acknowledge their hard work.
I agree that this is a very excellent idea!! Due to a pretty massive backlog I am not going to be able to get around to it soon, but very much invite anyone who sees this to contribute & add this information. :)
Page created as part of a project to improve hackathon documentation
I created this page as part of a project to improve the documentation for hackathon organizers.
If you're interested in details, find the official project description on Phabricator: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T168458
or check out my working page/ construction site that I used to document my work for this project: User:Sonkiki/Handbook Project
Sources I used to create the content of this page:
- I collected the links with the help of the previously existing hackathon documentation pages, with many link collections put together by User:Rfarrand (WMF) - thanks, Rachel!
- User:Quiddity (WMF) significantly helped me by adding to the list, especially regarding older hackathons - thanks, Nick!
- new content I created myself, drawn from experiences of organizing previous hackathons, especially the Wikimedia Hackathon 2017 Vienna
I hope that the new structure created in this project not only proves to be helpful, but that it will be built upon, edited, improved and extended over time – like any good wiki page should be!
