bd808 moved this task from Backlog to Session on the Wikimania-Hackathon-2018 board.
bd808 renamed this task from Introduction to Phabricator (20 minute presentation + Q&A) to Session: Introduction to Phabricator (20 minute presentation + Q&A).
bd808 triaged this task as Normal priority.

(For completeness, my notes for the previous talk version which was not using the slides above are at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:AKlapper_(WMF)/Talks#Introduction_to_Wikimedia_Phabricator but that was IMO way too much information. The slides above are better and more basic.)

Have a advanced Phab session (chase)

@chasemp This made me think... (just random stream of consciousness notes)
I generally open this bookmark (by typing the bookmark-keyword "man" (for maniphest)) instead of using the default search. That's usually my top advice to colleagues.
I'm guessing this session would also involve pointing folks towards Toolforge phab-related tools.
Plus of course the advanced items from the slides above.

The session was held. One community member attended and got (probably too much) advice from @bd808, @chasemp, and @Harej on using Phabricator.

@Quiddity's ideas from T199168#4436527 should be captured... somewhere. Maybe @Aklapper is interested in starting a task about developing a more advanced Phabricator course for future events?
