Are you planning to attend the Wikimedia Hackathon from May 20-22 next month? We hope so! The main event will be held online.
Host a session
The call for sessions is now open on the schedule page. If you’d like to host a session, pick an open slot in the category that best fits your topic, and add yourself to the schedule. Want to run a session but not sure of a topic? Check out the interests that people have listed on the Participants list!
The Developer Advocacy team has put together some suggestions for how to create a fun session.
Propose a project for hacking
Hackathons are all about hacking! To propose a project or seek help on an existing project, add a task to the Phabricator board. As the board grows, check back to find projects you might want to hack on during the event.
Other ways to participate
In addition to attending (virtually or at a local meetup), you can also participate by volunteering to welcome newcomers, contribute translations, or help with other types of tasks. Check the wiki page for ideas.
You can find more information on the Hackathon MediaWiki.org page, which will continue to grow over the next few weeks.
