The Hallway Track

Carrot juice is often underestimated

The Hallway Track is an initiative from/for people from the technical community to remotely connect with each other.

  • Open to folks who want to get to know others in Wikimedia-Tech
  • Open to folks who want to meet with others they haven’t seen in a while
  • <insert> any other good reason :-) </insert>

The concept is derived from Wikimedia_Technical_Conference/2019/SmallGroupDinners

No relation to dinner, but a small group of people talking to each other.

The Code of Conduct for Wikimedia's Technical Spaces will be in effect at The Hallway Track. If you'd like to participate or organise an edition, please review the Code of Conduct & ensure you are willing and able to follow it.

General format[edit]

  • 6 people max per call, Virtual, on Jitsi
  • Bring your own coffee/carrot juice
  • To discuss what we’re working on, new ideas, fun stuff, maybe demo things, maybe have a topic.

Want to organise a session?[edit]

  • Create a Jitsi event and add the date and time to this page
  • Send an invitation to Wikitech-l and/or the Hackathon telegram group/IRC channel - or #wmhack connect
  • Decide if you want to pre-announce a specific topic/theme or just let it go with the flow
  • Think of some good and inclusive ways to start the meeting (i.e. ask everyone to introduce themselves, and if there is anything specific they want to discuss)
  • Think of some (backup) topics you’d like to discuss, to get the conversation going
  • Use Etherpad to take notes if you want to share something with others

Generally interested?[edit]

I love the concept. Please ping me when the next edition is prepared!
