This is the program for the Wikimania Hackathon 2017 in Montreal.

All registered hackathon participants are welcome to edit the program directly with your own sessions now.

  • If your session is an hour or less, please go ahead and schedule it yourself!
    • Your session must link to an associated Phabricator task that is tagged to the #Wikimania-Hackathon-2017 project.
    • Please try to keep your sessions to 55 minutes so your participants can get to another session. Also please have the room cleared in time for the participants from the session following yours to get settled and start on time.
  • If you are scheduling a session for longer than an hour, need help editing the program, or need help with creating a task on Phabricator, please email rfarrand@wikimedia.org and siebrand@kitano.nl for help (we want to make sure that the limited breakout room space is available for everyone).
