FOSScamp Balkans 2017

Jump to: navigation, search

The second edition of the summer adventure to spend with free open source geeks from communities all around the Balkans and Europe. Four days of co-creation for Wikimedia Commons of the beautiful island of Syros. Wikimedians from Albania, Greece and other countries will collaborate with the ultimate goal of growing multimedia elements related to Syros island in Wikimedia projects. To achieve this we are planning to take 360' photos of the island, publish them in Wikimedia commons and through a Mozilla WebVR workshop will learn how to create Web VR experiences with the images fetched from Wikimedia Commons. This page will help the documentation of the event and the outcome of these activities.

Goals[edit]

  • contribution of 360'images to Wikimedia Commons;
  • training of new contributors to Commons by learning in the field;
  • collaboration of various Wiki projects between Wikipedians in the region;
  • addition of content with geo-information to Syros island;
  • strengthen the sense of belonging and community culture among contributors.
