Following the Hackathon in Prague, the Growth team continues to work on tools that help newcomers to work on their first steps. The focus is mainly on Wikipedias.
This session is geared toward Hackathon participants who want to build software that helps new wiki editors be productive and fit into their communities. We are also interested by any community and/or developers initiatives that helps newcomers to make their first steps on the wikis. If you are for instance a gadget creator or an help page builder, we will be happy to have a chat with you!
We will cover:
- The engineering projects that have been started to make editing easier and to make learning easier.
- Some of the facts about newcomers' biggest challenges and needs in which the projects are grounded.
- Concrete ideas for Hackathon projects that can build on existing work in this domain, and ideas for prototypes of new ideas.
- How communities can get the existing prototypes on your wiki.
