Grants:TPS/Zabien/EMWCon Spring 2018/Report
|This Wikimedia Participation Support report has been accepted by the Wikimedia Participation Support Committee.To see the original request, please visit Grants:TPS/Zabien/EMWCon Spring 2018.|
The enterprise MediaWiki conference was attended solely by enthusiastic, interested and well-informed community members. Discussions happened on a very skilled, sophisticated level while still inviting newer attendees to participate in sharing their questions and topics. The overall atmosphere was highly professional, welcoming and supporting growth in learning. Without favouring single persons, to me it was especially rewarding to work with everybody from the MediaWiki Stakeholders' Group and the numerous participants from NASA.
