Time to prove your interest in Summit proposals

Qgil-WMF (talkcontribs)

This is a call to everyone interested in the Wikimedia Developer Summit 2017 -- including remote participants. We need you to help us decide which sessions should be pre-scheduled in advance, getting bigger rooms, video recording, and higher quality requirements.

Today we have 46 sessions competing for 15 slots. We need to propose a schedule by December 12. How can you help?

The best way is to check the proposals submitted and join those that interest you in a visible way:

  • participating in the discussion (the best way to prove your interest and support the proposal)
  • subscribing to the Phabricator task (click "Subscribe")
  • awarding a token to the Phabricator task (click "Award Token")

The sooner, the better. We will start checking participation by November 28 (see the timeline).

To be clear, this is not a popularity contest. Proposals with more participation will be more likely to be pre-scheduled and vice versa. However, the scheduling will be handled by the Program committee. They will take into account participation numbers, but they will also consider other factors.

Proposals not scheduled will be directed to the Unconference that will run in parallel to the pre-scheduled sessions.
