Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went?

Our goal was 20 partecipants (the number of people confirmed us their presence), we were about 17. In addition to the number of participants, our real goal is to fill the gender gap, so involve women in writing contents in Wikipedia and add female biographies in Wikipedia. We are very happy about how the event went, because we had enthusiastic people we trust that they will become Wikipedians.


Please report on your original project targets.
