Event name[edit]

FOSScamp Syros 2017

Participant connections[edit]

During this event there were many other people who were involved and contributing for the wikimedia project. Some of them were Nafie Shehu, Andis Rado, Redon Skikuli. It was a pleasure to also meet Lior Kaplan from Israel who had also been contributing from the project. There were around 8 people who attended the workshops in each of them, I showed them how easy it was to upload the picture via the Commons App, and especially with geo location open they could also contribute for Wiki Loves Maps. Eva, Elio, Redon, Nafie etc started uploading from their phones right away. I loved the fact that this will also have a future impact since people now can now contribute in a more practical way for Wikimedia Commons.
