How to schedule breakout sessions[edit]

How to schedule Proposed Sessions & Skill Share:

  • If your breakout session lasts up to 1 hour
    • schedule it yourself in the tables below in one of the time slots with nothing else in it, you can check the details of the rooms above.
    • All sessions need to have an associated Phabricator task with a description linked to the schedule. If you are unsure how to create one. Please add a tag to your Phabricator task associating it with Wikimedia-Hackathon-2018.
    • If your session does not have an associated Phabricator task it will be removed.
  • If your breakout session lasts longer than 1 hour
    • Please reach out to hackathon@wikimedia.cat and ask us don't schedule this session on your own. We need to make sure there is enough space for everyone to organize sessions.
    • Longer sessions will be schedule just before the hackathon

If you already have a Phabricator account and are interested in attending a specific breakout session please subscribe to the associated task on Phabricator so that breakout session organizers know how many people to expect.

How to plan for your sessions and projects[edit]

Do you have a project idea, training topic idea or session idea? Here are some ways to get involved

  • Make sure to add your project, session or training to our Phabricator workboard: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/view/3260/
    • Any ideas are welcome!
  • Come to the Hackathon Opening Ceremony on Friday 18 May ready to talk about your idea for 1-2 minutes during our open mic time. NOTES: https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/wmhack2018-projects
  • Keep watching this page and your email, we will let participants know when they can start scheduling sessions and how that will work!
  • Add your name and interests, including things you can teach and things you want to learn about, to our participants page.
  • Email the organizers with any questions! We can help!

WiFi connection instructions on Campus[edit]

  • Please connect to the UAB SSID.
  • Once connected, you need to get your typical captive portal.
  • Problem is, captive portals don't play together too well with today's browsers. First, you have to connect with http://, not https://.
  • But most websites nowadays are https, and they claim HSTS. This means that browsers remember that a particular site is HTTPS, and they won't connect via HTTP even if you force them. So, wikipedia won't do. Or Google, for that matter.
  • We recommend you to connect to a dummy website, like example.com.
  • That will force HTTP, and you will get the captive portal.
  • Once there, it's easy. Just tick the "connect as a guest" box, and login. You're set.

Contribute to the Program[edit]

Wikimedia’s technical areas
Propose a session, workshop, or project
  • Proposed Sessions - Session covering any of the Wikimedia’s technical areas.
  • Skill Share - Hands-on skill development workshops on topics around technology stack of Wikimedia projects.
  • Featured Tasks - List of projects that are suitable for volunteers proposed by the participants and curated by the organizers.
  • Backlog - If you don't know where to list your task, add it here and we will help you.

For any of the items listed above, create a task on Phabricator, add #Wikimedia-Hackathon-2018 tag, and import it to the respective column on the workboard. Also, indicate in the task description if your proposed activity is newcomer-friendly.

  • Meeting point: Marquee next to the cafeteria and auditori de la Facultat de Lletres Faculty of Humanities and Arts Auditorium
  • Meeting time: 8:20 am (the first bus of the day from your hotel will take you there and a volunteer will be waiting for you, don't miss it!)
  • Duration: 75 minutes
