Request funded[edit]

Dear Oetterer,

Thank you for submitting this request. We are happy to approve this request for participation in EMWCon and see it as a great opportunity share your work as a developer volunteer.

Please review the next steps for your grant as described in "How the program works". Your post-event report must provide a link to an outcome from your participation. We recommend that you start planning your outcome now so you are prepared to submit it as part of your report, which is due 14 days after the event. We would like to hear in your report about how your goals were met.

Note that an outcome does not include the materials you prepare to present at the event (though we’d like you to link to those, too), but something that is created during or after the event because of your participation, such as a link to something new that was co-created by you and your fellow participants at the event, a blog post you wrote to share your experience with others after the event, or a learning pattern to teach others something you've learned at the event. If you choose to make a learning pattern, think creatively about what you learned. Did you address a target audience about whom you have special expertise (for example, a physicist presenting at a conference for physicists about how to use Wikipedia)? Your learning pattern might focus on a strategy you employed that was successful in engaging that specific audience in our projects.

Our Grants Administrator will be in touch with you about your grant. Thank you for work on behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation.

@Oetterer: please contact WMF at <grantsadmin(_AT_)wikimedia.org> and provide documentation that your talk has been accepted at EMWCon Spring 2017 and is included in its schedule. This can be a link to the event's website listing your session in the schedule or a copy of the notification letter/email sent to you by the organizers confirming your participation. We need to confirm your active participation before moving forward with processing your grant. -- Best wishes, JTud (WMF), Grants Administrator (talk) 00:04, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
@Jtud (WMF): Janice Tud suggested to post this here: the date of the event is gettings closer and the flight I wanted to book is now full. Alternative flights are unfortunately more expensive, so I would like to ask for an extension of USB 120 (there is a buffer included, which I will not be needing, if the prices remain stable for now). --Oetterer (talk) 12:35, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
Hi Oetterer. Thanks for the update. The additional USB 120 is approved, if needed. Cheers, Alex Wang (WMF) (talk) 04:59, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
