Aklapper added subscribers: Aklapper, Rfarrand, Qgil.

@Rfarrand, @Qgil: So does someone have links to previous "MediaWiki 101" sessions, slides, videos?
Spent a few minutes on Commons and Youtube now and I fail.

I could imagine preparing/running such a session but would really like to see what has been covered in the past and not only depend on my memory here.

[Edit]: Hmm, maybe Quim's "The Wikimedia open source project and you" in might provide some pointers.

@Aklapper: @Qgil did not use slides last time, he just pulled up some webpages which he could probably list here and talked about them.

Qgil renamed this task from "Basic introduction to MediaWiki" session (on first Hackathon day) to "Introduction to Wikimedia Tech" session (on first Hackathon day).Jun 23 2015, 12:10 PM
Qgil set Security to None.

Edited the task summary after giving this some more thoughts and watching random videos and slides.
Feedback welcome but not mandatory :)

Andre! This looks really great! Thanks for raising the bar on this. I think it will be greatly appreciated. :)
Now we just need a good plan for what to do with people who come up and tell you they don't have projects!
