People who want to plan their time slots in advance can, people who want to wait until the week of/morning of also can do so.

Sounds good! I can put up the same schedule I made for Lyon with a few edits once I have timing for dinner/lunch, etc if that works and then you can help get people on it? Does that make sense?
Your table at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Hackathon_2015/Program is very good. We can reuse it as soon as we know the fixed timing for opening/closure/meals and the rooms available. If you post the data here, I can recreate the table.
I just requested specifics on meeting rooms for the org team. It might be worth putting a time limit on how long each session can b at least to start with as we have a limited number of rooms for talks/sessions/meetings.
@Qgil, in fact, yes!:
2nd Floor -
Don Diego 2: Main hacking room, stage for opening/big talks, 150 people with rounds of 10
Don Americo: Break out room, 60 people classroom seating, if we can get video recording we will put it here
Don Genaro: Break out room, 60 people classroom seating
Central Vestibule: not reservable, centralized location for a few more rounds for informal hacking, probably fitting 20 people
Don Julian: Break out room, 60 people classroom seating
Hackathon Friday - Sunday:
Dona Adelita: 100 people rounds of 10
Possibility for smaller 20 person breakout room, not confirmed
Each room will have mics and projectors
Transcluded better than merged? While the Wikimania program is fully scheduled and heavily moderated, the Hackathon schedule will be quite empty and open to edits from anyone.
I'll try to get this task finished tomorrow.
@Rfarrand, which is the 24 hour hacking room?
Also, I don't see the Hackathon Showcase scheduled in https://wikimania2015.wikimedia.org/wiki/Programme . Do we have a serious problem?
In https://wikimania2015.wikimedia.org/wiki/Programme they don't talk about Don Américo etc but Room A, B, C, etc. Let's use the same system, which wins? And which Don/Doña corresponds to each letter?
As soon as the questions above are clear, I will see how to best merge this schedule with https://wikimania2015.wikimedia.org/wiki/Programme.
@Rfarrand, do we have a way to reach to the Hackathon participants? Perhaps the time is approaching to send a first email to the participants.
getting back to you shortly on the 24hr hacking room for Wed night and Thursday night. Friday night - Sunday the 24 hour room will be:
Please move the opening and mediawiki 101 to Don Diego 3 & 4. This will double as the main hacking space and a space for big presentations.
You could add @Aklapper intro to Phabricator in any room you want from 11-12
The names I gave you for rooms are correct, the main Wikimania schedule will redo their naming scheme shortly. Those can also be adjusted.
Yes, I have access to registration/email addresses and will be able to email anyone registered to the hackathon. Lets discuss here: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T103593
All of the rooms we have will be 24 hour for us between Wed morning and Thursday evening.
I am trying to figure out where people can go Thursday night.
Don Adelita will be 24 hour for us between Friday morning and Sunday evening and should be stocked with 24hr snacks.
contain now the Hackathon information to the best of our knowledge. Both pages are in sync, transcluding the same tables for Wednesday and Thursday. @Rfarrand, please review the room capacity numbers.
https://wikimania2015.wikimedia.org/wiki/Hackathon#Program_and_tasks also contains instructions for people willing to schedule sessions. Task resolved. Ready to be announced with a T103593: First email to Hackathon Participants!
PS: the bad news is that I broke my stroke of months without touching wikitext section transclusion... ;)
Not sure if T102238: "Introduction to Wikimedia Tech" session (on first Hackathon day) will really take a full hour - tempted to make that 30min and also T102195: "Basic introduction to Phabricator" session (on first Hackathon day) 30min (with a followup "come to me and ask your questions and let us do things together" table in the hackroom or such)
