Mark your calendar: MediaWiki hackathon, New Orleans, 14-16 Oct.

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/NOLA_Hackathon

MediaWiki developers are going to meet in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA,
October 14-16, 2011. Ryan Lane is putting this together and I'm helping
a bit. If you're intending to come, please add your name here, just so
we can start getting an idea of how many people are coming:

I'll add more details to the wiki page next week.

It might be nice to couple this with a New Orleans wikimeetup. I have no
idea if New Orleans has meetups already, but the D.C. hackathon coupled with
a meetup and it seemed to work out pretty well. Social interaction and
direct user contact is never a bad thing for developers. ;-)

Context: at last year's D.C. hackathon, we joined the D.C. meetup on
Saturday night. Basically, the meetup was a dinner at a restaurant
with ~10 local Wikimedians, and we kind of took over the whole thing
with ~25 developers :D

I second this notion, meeting up with local Wikimedians in some way,
maybe even inviting them to hang around the venue even if they're not
coders, sounds like a great idea.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/DC_12 was the wikimeetup
coordination page, for reference.

Hola, desafortunadamente entiendo muy poco el idioma ingles a pesar de
estudiarlo por varios años, la falta de práctica con el mismo no me ha
permitido entender todo lo que me han enviado pero gracias de todas formas.
Como informe mi interes es conocer ideas ó tecnicas novedosas de agricultura
para apoyar el desarrollo de la zona donde vivo.

From my experience, it works pretty well to invite local wiki[pm]edians to any
social events / parties around the hackathon. An open Q/A session at some point
during the hackathon, perhaps at the end of the first day, or last thing on the
last day (before some party) could also work. But it may be that not many people
would show up for that. Depends very much I guess.
