Wikimedia Developer Summit/2017/Get Stuff Done Day


Get Stuff Done Day, Day 3 of Wikimedia Developer Summit 2017

About the Get Stuff Done Day[edit]

Get Stuff Done Day is an entirely unscheduled day for the members of the community to meet with each other, discuss any topics relevant to their interests, and hack and collaborate on projects together. This day would give us all the opportunity to make progress on topics discussed during the Day 1 and 2 of the developer summit.

There will not be any fixed agenda for this day. Participants will have access to food, drinks, wifi and breakout spaces and can use their time as they see fit. Participants will be given the opportunity to announce their ideas for the Get Stuff Done Day during the day 2 closing, and event organizers will facilitate the brainstorming for project ideas during the morning on day 3. Event organizers will provide facilitation supplies, help people find new ways to use our space, and find groups. Newbies to Wikimedia are welcome!

We will also have a closing at the end of the day with a Project Showcase.

Venue: Golden Gate Club, Presidio, San Francisco, USA
