OutcomeEdit

Attending this conference is always an enriching experience for me because it strengthens my commitment to the movement through giving me the opportunity to meet with old and new friends from all over the world with the same mission.

In this opportunity I was able to get to know more about the Wikidata project, something that I was looking forward to dig deeper since its launch a couple of years ago.

And of course, I had the opportunity to share this experiences with the people from my chapter and other local volunteers. I did also tweet about the conference via de WMAR twitter account during Wikimania (@wikimedia_ar).

ConnectionsEdit

 
An Iberocoop meeting during the conference. I'm the one standing in the left.

I was one of the organizers of the two Iberocoop working meetings that were carried out during the conference days. This enabled us at Wikimedia Argentina to get input for program design about the different chapters' and groups' experiences, challenges and expectations for the meeting that we'll be hosting in Buenos Aires at late-November.

I, together with other WMAR board members, had a meeting with WMF’s Floor Koudijs about our educational programs, during which we explored possible ways of coordinating our work and helping other countries and communities in the Latin American region.

I met with the Wikimania 2015 organizing team as part of experience sharing and transferring knowledge from our experience as Wikimania 2009 organizers.

Finally, I was able to take part of the WikiReadings initiative. I read the Spanish Wikipedia article about Racing Club de Avellaneda.

Anything elseEdit

Thanks for letting me participate in this amazing conference! :-) And sorry for my late response, I didn't have time to finish it sooner.
