Draft template here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1wXbcyVmT081gldZR3PPjK5-rRJyPGoqh2zEjV4GsOME/edit
I have created the draft and will be asking for feedback from Siebrand, Nick, and Benoit.
Next year the registration form should be formatted differently - getting an accurate list of attendees and their answers to registration was difficult and time consuming. Each participant had two different registrations.
I have added room for a list of sprints here: https://wikimania2017.wikimedia.org/wiki/Hackathon/Program
Sent an email to @Lea_Lacroix_WMDE from WMDE to see how we can help!
- Andre will be there
- Happy to do any newcomer developer support from afar
Just let us know :)

That is a good point, currently I am unsure if everyone on our list actually proposed a code change or not. They just self identified as newcomer and attended and were not taken off the list after review.
Yep, sounds good! Closing the task. Thank you!

We had two people mention in the feedback survey that they did not like that we used telegram in Vienna, however 122+ people used the channel and there was a very large amount of positive feedback.
Because of this we will continue to use it for future events - however we will continue to use IRC as well and all important announcements will go in both locations for Montreal.
We will get an even better idea about if people like it / appreciate it or not by asking a survey question about it for the Barcelona Hackathon

Yes, and for both Vienna and Wikimania we have/had photos up too!
@srishakatux I would be grateful if you could just go ahead and add that! We can adjust later as needed but getting info up at all now is important!
I can work on the actual program pretty soon. I am just getting a few more details about the room set-ups and uses.
Yep! It shows up for me. Thanks a lot. Maybe I can grab all the "accepted" emails at the end of the week and then we can close the task. Thank you very much for your help with this!
Haha! Yes, I made the mistake of creating this task in the middle of multitasking during a meeting in order to make sure it was not forgotten. I will edit the task now to make it more clear. thanks for flagging it. :)
Sounds good! Thanks :)
Not quite resolved! Hopefully by the end of the month!

Hello! I asked by email but just following up here.
I did receive a list of email addresses of attendees, but can you confirm that those people have opted into being added to a mailing list and not just that those are the email addresses of the people who attended?
We do not get to choose who we add, people themselves get to choose if they want to be added.
I have re-shared the doc by email. It is the same one everyone had access to in Vienna.
Offer personalized support to all newcomers at the event.

This is excellent! Thank you for all of the good work you all did while I was out of the office! :)
This will be helpful both for the Wikimania hackathon and UAB!

post its of various sizes
candy for help desk / registration desk
You choose, and I will try to make it happen!
Eventually this task will probably have sub-tasks with specific changes to follow up on
@Toniher do you mind if I close this task and we continue discussions here:
@Halfak I am glad you ask!! I was just discussing this same this with Siebrand.
I am looking for any ideas you have on how we can identify these people. Bonus points if it is something reusable.
Every step here is complete:
I am closing this task because the order is approved and in progress. The cards should be shipped to WMF by mid July!
This was created, sent out, 99 responses, and close yesterday (June 27) The feedback is being posted here:
This is mostly done, however I wont be able to close the task completely until next quarter.

OK, the link above has the final of the Wikimania 2016 Lessons Learned.
The suggested changes for next time are being carried over to the planning for this year.
I have started adding details here:
(using a mediawiki page because the wikimania2016 wiki is locked to unauthorized users creating new pages)
Closing this task - hackathon is over, this task will be linked from hackathon documentation and relevant ideas are carried over to Wikimania Hack.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this task! :)
Changes we are making for Wikimania based on this feedback:
- I am just getting to this now, Yikes! What kind of write up do you think would be most helpful for this?
- Any ideas or interest in doing a "part 2" in Montreal? If yes, lets talk!
