Follow-up with the FOSDEM attendees who gave us their contact details
Closed, ResolvedPublic


About 120 people gave us this information during FOSDEM 2015:

  • Email (required)
  • Wikimedia username (if they had one)
  • Interested in projects (Wikipedia, MediaWiki, Commons...)
  • Preferred languages

We had very different profiles (from software developers to Wikipedia fans that have never edited) from different European countries and speaking different languages. We need to get back to them soon, and decide how to follow-up with them.

A generic first email with some pointers, encouraging them to reply if they have more specific requests?

We have some suggestions for developers and other technical contributors:

We have non-technical suggestions as well:

Are you looking for something else? Just ask!
