Hey @srodlund, so we're thinking of scheduling this session on Saturday, May 22nd, at 17:00 UTC, during 55min, in a hacking room. As agreed, the pre-recorded session from Dan would be presented on the main track beforehand (16:30), and you could even jump in at the end so you can "advertise" the Q&A and encourage people to join you there. Is the time OK for you?

Yes. @Lea_Lacroix_WMDE 17:00 UTC on 22 May will be perfect!

I will also come to the earlier session and encourage folks to come!

Awesome, thanks! We'll keep you updated regarding technical details soon :)

Thanks for participating in the Wikimedia Hackathon 2021! We hope you had a great time.

  • If this session / event took place: Please change the task status to "resolved" via the Add Action...Change Status dropdown.
    • If there are specific follow-up tasks from this session / event: Please create dedicated tasks and add another active project tag to those tasks, so others can find those tasks (as likely nobody in the future will look back at Wikimedia-Hackathon-2021 tasks when trying to find something they are interested in).
  • In this session / event did not take place: Please set the task status to "declined".

Thank you,
your Hackathon venue housekeeping service
