OutcomeEdit

Option 3: New Creation: What was one useful outcome that was created at the event for the Wikimedia movement?
https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/225266/ During the Hackathon I solved some bugs from Graphoid, a new project to provide easily editable charts in Wiki pages.
https://github.com/vega/datalib/pull/36 Datalib is used by vega which is used by graphoid, and Datalib had an issue with http, with Yurik's help I solved it too.

ConnectionsEdit

During Wikimania I met Aaron Halfaker, we already worked during the first steps of Revscore, he introduced me to Joseph Allemandou who taught me about Hadoop and some big data challenges WMF is facing now. Also I met Yuri Astrakhan, an experienced MediaWiki developer and helpful professor, he taught me about Graphoid and guided me through the bug solving cycle.
