All logistics are in place.
A few details for the Monday night social event are still being worked out.

For now, this is good. We can make the participants page more detailed as we go but don't need to worry about it to much now. I was considering running a session at an upcoming hackathon to help determine and the write what information is missing from this page. It would be helpful to get some newcomer feedback on it.

Rfarrand added a comment to T150732: Provide a group chat system for mentoring.

Also - one other final comment.
In the Mozilla Open Leadership program that I am taking part in I am needing to get on different tools I have not used before. GitHub and Gitter (chat program) for example.
I think another way to frame this is to say that getting on IRC and getting familiar with it with the help of your mentors and program leads is actually a net-positive instead of net-negative.
If you want to be a developer in the open source community you probably should know how to use IRC... and we at WMF are offering training and support to get people going.
So just a bit of different framing could help. Don't say "we know it sucks and its going to be hard, but please use IRC because thats how we do things." Say "IRC Is a big part of open source developer culture, we can help you work through the set-up process"

Rfarrand added a comment to T150732: Provide a group chat system for mentoring.

IRC is of course very hard to use for newbies; enough has been said about that already.

In response that this, I used to agree but don't anymore. If you are installing IRC on your own computer, reserving a nickname, and trying to set up a bouncer (and all of the rest of the crazy stuff you need to do) it is quite challenging.

Good news - I believe I will be getting a list of "no-shows" for the Montreal hackathon in the next few days so we can makes sure we are not tracking people who did not arrive.
As long as I get this information by then I think we will have pretty accurate date for the number of newcomers that actually attended our last two hackathons.

Rfarrand updated subscribers of T132381: Tech Talk: The History of MediaWiki & Wikimedia Tech.

I believe I created this task just after the Wikimedia Hackathon 2016 in Israel. I think a group of us had a discussion about fewer and fewer people remaining who have the entire picture and how tragic it would be if this information was ever lost or no one remained who was around for (mostly) everything.

I think this talk would be REALLY interesting and good to have a verbal history somewhere.
Maybe @MelodyKramer could help? Like send a list of history related questions to some of our dinosaurs (meant very respectfully) and we can put it all together and then find someone who like public speaking to present the results?
Not sure any one person will actually take the time to go write down / research / remember everything themselves?

Yes - I need to review notes and make sure all "next steps" or ideas are at least slightly more widely circulated.

Rfarrand added a comment to T169850: Friendly Space and Event Ban policies should be well reflected in the Hackathons Handbook .

Will put some thought into this task after the Dev Summit venue is sorted :)
