Barcamp Kumasi (Saturday, 12 November)[edit]

Barcamp Kumasi is a networking forum bringing people together for a day of learning, sharing, networking and mentoring. The event was held at SSNIT Auditorium on the theme "Professionalism, a key to productivity". The breakout session dedicated to Wikimedia was lead by Noah Alorwu, Addae Anthony (Maaddae) and Mohammed Jaward.

There were 10 participants who showed interest in contributing to local contents on Wikipedia and Commons. We have their email addresses and phone numbers. Anthony Addae compiled the list and shared with the group.

Here are few things we discussed

1. Why and how to join the user group.

2. How to create a Wikipedia account.

3. How to edit an article.

4. Some Do's and Don'ts.

5. Edit-a-thons.

6. Wiki Loves Monuments.

7. Wiki Loves Women.

8. Wiki Indaba and Wikimedia sister projects.
