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 of the previous Hackathons/Hackathon tips for organizers page (as it was before June 30 2017)
- content of the previous Hackathons page (as it was before June 30 2017)
- new content I created by myself, drawn from experiences of organizing previous hackathons, especially the Wikimedia Hackathon 2017 Vienna
I took from these sources and developed a new structure, in the form of "chapters" for this handbook.
This was a team effort - thanks to everybody involved!
I had lots of help from the nice people at the WMF Technical Collaboration team, especially Rachel, Nick, Quim, BenoÎt, Chris and Whatamidoing, Melody from WMF Communications and my local team at WMAT, Claudia, Annemarie and Raimund.
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!
