Subject: MediaWiki Workshop: Preparing extensions for MediaWiki 1.19 - 1/13/2012 on #wikimedia-dev
Newsgroups: gmane.org.wikimedia.mediawiki.enterprise
Date: Friday 6th January 2012 01:53:17 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Greetings!

Utilizing the model set by Wikimedia staff IRC office hours,
MediaWiki.org's WikiProject Extensions is presenting our first MediaWiki
Workshops for developers (volunteer and staff).  Preparing extensions for
MediaWiki 1.19 will be held on 13 January, 2012 at 19:00 UTC in IRC
(#wikimedia-dev).

This IRC workshop will be an opportunity to find out about changes in
MediaWiki 1.19 that may require revisions to extensions or skins. Also an
opportunity to ask MediaWiki developers questions regarding extension
development.

Everyone is invited to attend.  Developers interested in serving as
"extensions" or "MediaWiki 1.19" experts are encouraged to signup as
participants at: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Project:WikiProject_Extensions/MediaWiki_Workshops#MediaWiki_1.19_Experts

If there's continued interest / demand, MediaWiki Workshops will typically
last one hour, and happen no more than twice a month to present trainings,
hold discussions and collaborate on community or WikiProject Extensions
projects. Facilitators host the session to introduce any presenters,
determine the order of questions, and generally helps to keep things going.
Time of day will vary in order to offer people in different parts of the
world the opportunity to participate. Future topics will likely include
MediaWiki.org documentation, ResourceLouder orientation and workshops
similar to our inaugural chat to prepare for each MediaWiki release.

More information: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Project:WikiProject_Extensions/MediaWiki_Workshops

MediaWiki.org's WikiProject SysAdmins will also likely host similar
MediaWiki Workshops to help third-party wiki system administrators.  Stay
tuned for more information, and chime in at: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Project:WikiProject_SysAdmins/Ideas

Look forward to seeing folks next Friday!  Please feel free to forward this
along to any interested folks.
