OutcomeEdit

Option 3: New Creation: What was one useful outcome that was created at the event for the Wikimedia movement?
Add a link to something new that was created as a result of your participation in this event (for example, you might link to a new tool that you and your co-participants worked on at the Hackathon, or to pages created in a workshop you participated in).

Two of my favourite sessions I visited during the preconference Hackathon

  1. SPARQL or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Triple
    I am completely a newbie and my first query thanks to this session is this. It gave 43 entries of people born in Ukraine before year 1890 with no death date which were to be checked :)
  2. Learning Lua
    Thanks to this session I learned more about Lua and writing modules. I created Module:Phrase in ukwiki. It will be possible to replace/rewrite numerous R-phrase and S-phrase templates (used in infoboxes of articles on various chemicals) when the module is done. I have not finished it yet as there is more to learn about Wikidata to shape it properly.

I have also translated to Ukrainian 153 units on translatewiki.net which is thanks to 24 hour hacking space, where one could quietly work.

ConnectionsEdit

Some people I got [re]acquainted with are

and many others.

Some connections [may] result in collaborations with obvious Wikimedia results, other just help to stay in the movement and the latter is as important. (That's why despite our living in online era I believe Wikimania is important for people to meet and show each other in person that we are making something useful.)

Anything elseEdit

I joined Nikola Kalchev in facilitating Comparison of large international article writing and photographic contests session on WMCON Follow-Up Day.
