Welcome back from Wikimania 2019!

Outcome[edit]

Beyond the conferences and the workgroups, which result in medium and long-term content both on a personal level as in on other members of my community, perhaps the most visible and productive aspect was attending the Wikidata translation workshop, not only due to the translations made in the days of pre-conference and during the conference itself but because it worked as an incentive for a workshop made in Lalín (Galicia) during September, with other members of the Galician Wikipedia community, who are not used to editing in Wikidata.

Connections[edit]

The most interesting meeting was possibly the one with the people of Wikitongues. I am especially interested in linguistic diversity in Wiki projects (I attended Celtic Knot and The worlds of Wikimedia events in the past). It was a pleasure to collaborate with them, and being video recorded while speaking Galician, my mother tongue. While attending the Wikimania 2019 event, I joined the Telegram group "Wikimedia Language Diversity", created in the event itself. Thanks to that I currently continue getting knowledge about the topic.
