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:
- content from the previous /Hackathons page (as it was before June 30 2017), chapter "Suggestions/ Ideas from Hackathon Participants"
- content from the previous /Hackathons/Tips_for_organizers page (as it was before June 30 2017)
- content from Hackathons/Suggesting projects created by Johan (WMF), who was nice enough to allow me to merge his idea into the new page (see our chat on his talk page)
- new content I created by 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!
