Hi Fabrice, thanks a lot for taking these photos of the presentations! They are really useful for illustrating the monthly WMF report. Matthew also took quite a few of them, which I have added above.
There is actually already a slideshow feature on Commons - e.g. you can view these images as a slideshow here. I'm sure your team will greatly improve upon its functionality, of course.
