Welcome back from Wikimania 2017!

Participant[edit]

Yann (talk)

Commons and French Wikisource

Outcome[edit]

Option 1: Shared Experience: What is one way you shared something from your experience with your community (either locally or globally), after the event?
Add a link here to a blog post or newsletter you wrote about your participation afterwards, or to a meet-up you organized to share your experience with your local community.
Option 2: Learning Pattern: What is one useful learning pattern you can share with the Wikimedia movement?
Add a link to a learning pattern - either a new pattern you created with insights from your participation, or an existing pattern to which you added your endorsement and some significant new "considerations" or “examples” from your experience.
Option 3: New Creation: What was one useful outcome that was created at the event for the Wikimedia movement?
Add a link to something new that was created as a result of your participation in this event (for example, you might link to a new tool that you and your co-participants worked on at the Hackathon, or to pages created in a workshop you participated in).

The scan-a-thon at the BAnQ was great! That's inspiring for organizing similar events elsewhere. I had opportunities to discuss some bugs and technical problems about Wikisource, and start finding ways to fix them.

Connections[edit]

I didn't attend any international Wikimedia event for a very long time (Wikimania 2005 in Frankfort, Germany), and Wikimania 2017 gave me the opportunity to meet people I have been working with online for a long time. Discussions about Structured Data on Commons was very interesting, and have motivated me to be involved with this new project.

Anything else[edit]

The venue was very convenient.
