Session title

Technical Collaboration Guideline: A Collaboration

Main topic

How to grow our technical community

Type of activity

Unconference session

Description



=== 1. The problem ===

The Technical Collaboration Guideline has been built by in-person interviews and reviewed on-line. The problem is that is has not had an opportunity for in-person review and discussion during the drafting phase.

=== 2. Expected outcome ===

Potentially, edits to the TCG document itself to reflect findings in the discussion. For certain, there will be further understanding of the intending use and practical application of the TCG, and reflection of findings during the written review phase.

=== 3. Current status of the discussion ===

Online review will be open for a month to six weeks, starting next week (the last week of October 2016). The TCG is in first draft form with activity on its various talk pages

=== 4. Links ===

@Keegan Hey! As developer summit is less than four weeks from now, we are working on a plan to incorporate the ‘unconference sessions’ that have been proposed so far and would be generated on the spot. Thus, could you confirm if you plan to facilitate this session at the summit? Also, if your answer is 'YES,' I would like to encourage you to update/ arrange the task description fields to appear in the following format:

I've sent an email specifically to product managers, inviting them to join this unconference session once we have a time and date. I'd like to focus on the high-level purpose and impact of the TCG on products' work.

To the facilitator of this session: We have updated the unconference page with more instructions and faqs. Please review it in detail before the summit: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Developer_Summit/2017/Unconference. If there are any questions or confusions, please ask! If your session gets a spot on the schedule, we would like you to read the session guidelines in detail: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Developer_Summit/2017/Session_Guidelines. We would also then expect you to recruit Note-taker(s) 2(min) and 3 (max), Remote Moderator, and Advocate (optional) on the spot before the beginning of your session. Instructions about each role player's task are outlined in the guidelines. The physical version of the role cards will be available in all the session rooms! See you at the summit! :)
