Welcome back from Wikimania 2015!


Vinicius Siqueira (talk)



Option 1: Shared Experience: What is one way you shared something from your experience with your community (either locally or globally), after the event?

Every Wikimania is a different experience. This year, in Mexico, I met many people that I had the pleasure to know in previous events, but it was awesome to make new friends from other parts of the world and with different background inside the Wikimedia movement.

I always try to do my best to share with my community in Brazil all the learnings and experiences I lived in Wikimania, not only from the panels, but also from the networking, the meetups, the social events, the event organization etc.

I opted to write again a detailed report in Portuguese from all the panels I attended and from which I could draw out some learnings that could be useful to our community. I am also writing a post to be published soon about the learnings on Education at Wikimania for professors in Brazil (I will add the link here when it is posted).


I met people from many countries and with different experiences inside the movement. I could mention some of the most interesting people I met this year (I am sorry for the others I didn’t mention for lapse or because I can’t remember the usernames): User:3BRBS, User:Atropine, User:B1mbo, User:CFCF, User:DerHexer, User:Dungodung, User:Galio, User:Jmh649, User:Kiril Simeonovski, User:Netha Hussain, User:Patricio.lorente, User:ProtoplasmaKid, User:Salvador alc, User:Sky Harbor, User:SPQRobin, User:Superzerocool, User:Varnent, User:Warko, User:Wotancito; the Affiliations Committee, the Language Engineering team (and their amazing Content Translation tool!), Iberocoop members, other WMF staff, and the kind volunteers. Additionally, it was a good opportunity to meet again my fellows from Brazil: User:Jonas AGX, User:Lechatjaune and family, User:Marcio De Assis, and User:Sturm.

Anything else[edit]

It was a pleasure to be at Wikimania 2015! Thank you for the scholarship!
