Wikimedia Hackathon 2018/Prehackathon Montpellier
The pre-hackathon in Montpellier will take place the 14th and 15th of April 2018 in Montpellier, France. It is a warm up event linked to Wikimedia Hackathon 2018 and it will be focused on gadgets maintenance and updating, especially for the French Wikipedia.
The following tasks are within the scope of the event (non-comprehensive list):
- Update the technical documentation and ensure it is consistent everywhere (or centralize it when possible)
- Create a git repository that non-sysop developers can use to push updates to gadgets, etc. (Phab:T179550)
- Maybe a training session for outsider JS devs who might want to create or maintain Wikipedia gagdets
- Anything related to the creation of a Central Gadget Taskforce (phab:T159334)

Tentative plans for hackathonEdit
- We will sent a message to confirmed attendees and we will write here a program proposal some days before the event. This will be just a proposal, some guidelines, not mandatory at all.
The room allows ~15 people attending.
