@Qgil, added an outline. @Eevans, @mobrovac and me will more detail as we get closer.

In relation to T76325: Engage with established technical communities at the Wikimedia Hackathon 2015, are there any specific developers of any related communities that you would like to invite to Lyon? We can talk about travel sponsorship if it's reasonable.

If there are any sessions that you would prefer to schedule in advance (i.e. a training session for newcomers), please let me know. The time to book slots is now.

Note that most activities will not be scheduled in advanced, following the unconference model. However, we want to offer some structure for newcomers and for specific sessions with exceptional requirements.

It is time to promote Wikimedia-Hackathon-2015 activities in the program (training sessions and meetings) and main wiki page (hacking projects and other ongoing activities). Follow the instructions, please. If you have questions, about this message, ask here.
