Programs & Events Dashboard is a Ruby on Rails and React web application for organizing and tracking the impact of Wikimedia editing and outreach projects, such as edit-a-thons and Wikipedia Education Program courses. Some organizers of the #1lib1ref campaign would be interested in using the Dashboard, but it isn't well suited to the kinds of things that campaign needs to keep track of. Fix this!
Here's a little more context for the project: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Programs_%26_Events_Dashboard#Using_the_Dashboard_for_#1Lib1Ref
It will require some research to figure out what the highest priority things are to make the system useful for #1lib1ref organizer
mentors: @Ragesoss, ?
This idea is being fleshed out into a full project proposal by Khyati Soneji.
