Wikimania’s classic “Hacking Days” event is back, and better than ever as the Wikimania Codeathon will be open throughout the entire conference this year.
Based on the success of April’s Developer Meet-up in Berlin, we’re starting with an “unconference”-style planning session to let attendees break out into common working groups 10am Tuesday, August 25 (note — this is the day before the main conference begins). The coding room will remain open throughout the rest of the conference, so folks can pop in and out between other sessions.
We’ll be in Room F at the Centro Cultural, which should be nicely spacious. Non-developers are welcome during the conference if you just need a quiet place to sit and check on your sockpuppet accounts. ;)
There’ll be a wrap-up presentation in Room 3 at 14:00 Friday, August 28 to give folks a chance to do mini-talks on what they’ve been working on.
If you’re planning to attend, either in person or virtually via IRC, please add yourself to the list.
