Well then - It's a good time to share that our team (Program Capacity &
Learning), with the support of developers in other departments, has just
built the *alpha* version of the Program and Events Dashboard[1]. "Alpha",
from my understanding, means it is still in development. I can let Amanda
share more about the project and where it is at. (You can find the project
in Phabricator as well)

But my point here is that we are working to recognize community needs and
adapting. I do have to admit that if it were not for the WikiEd
foundation's work, I wonder if the Program and Events Dashboard would have
been created at all. However, the added benefit that the WMF brings to the
Program and Events Dashboard is that its for ALL programs, globally - not
just the Education Program, and not just U.S. and Canada. I would have to
wonder if spun off organizations would be able to ensure the work they
create serve the broad global audiences (*which is already a challenge for
our 300 staff!*)

It is difficult to manage both the technology and governance sides of and
organization like the WMF, but part of me really hopes that this is what
can help us succeed and excel. It's a symbiotic relationship. Technology
works with and for people; they are difficult to separate; one doesn't work
well without the other, especially if trying to hold the technology that is
created to the values and purpose the movement and mission.


 [1] *Programs and Events Dashboard alpha
<https://dashboard-testing.wikiedu.org/> built and tested!  Alpha works on
any wiki project and language. Now easier to use for edit-a-thons,
workshops, and education programs.  UX/UI and features still to be added to
core. *
