Multimedia Usability Project Meeting France/Schedule

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

This page is intended to support the planning and development of the November 6-8 meeting. The agenda is going to be shaped in a very open fashion, with attendees expressing interest in potential meeting groups beforehand on the wiki. This will help us to gauge interest levels.

We'll also try to use this page to recruit a volunteer moderator for each session.

Daily agenda[edit]

  • Thursday night: welcome sandwich at the hotel (for those arriving late), free evening (dinner out in the neighborhood for those who want).
  • Friday evening: Community Dinner with Wikimedia Community Location in the hotel.
  • Saturday evening: Free envening, enjoy Paris and have fun.

It's a work meeting[edit]

This meeting is intended to result in

  • documentation ("What has been achieved in area X")
  • specifications ("How would you build X")
  • code ("Here's a first implementation of X")
  • edits ("I've just changed X")
  • e-mails ("I sent X a note about this")
  • project pitches ("We need funding for X")
  • commitments ("I'm going to do X").

As such, it's desirable to have "work rooms" where people can work quietly on some of the identified priority issues, instead of attending group meetings. It's also desirable to have well-defined times each day when the entire group meets to share experiences (possibly beginning of day, mid-day, end of day).
