Option 1: Shared Experience For my first participation at Wikimania, I took part in 34 activities out of more than 180, roughly 18%. These 34 activities were split over the learning days (pre-conference) and the other three days of the Wikimania conference itself. I wrote a detailed report featuring the interactions mades, the lessons learned and perspectives to come. The report is avaible at: Wikimedia Community User Group Côte d'Ivoire/Reports/Côte d'Ivoire at Wikimania 2017
