Dear Wikimedians,

Three months ago, we welcomed many of you in Berlin to work, discuss and
get inspired at the Wikimedia Conference 2017. We have now published our
extensive and colorful grant report for this event, and you can read it on

In the meantime, the documentation of all sessions is complete. Check it
out on Meta as well:

While preparing the report, we have also written three learning patterns to
capture and share our experiences with other movement event organizers.

1) “Timing, Communication, Preparation: How to support your event
participants in the best way to get a Schengen Visa”,_Communication,_Preparation:_How_to_support_your_event_participants_in_the_best_way_to_get_a_Schengen_Visa

2) “Briefing calls with speakers: A simple way to improve conference

3) “The Buddy Project: Let’s make your conference more newbie friendly!”!

And if you think, “wow, that’s a lot!”: David Saroyan, Visiting Wikimedian
at Wikimedia Deutschland from January until April, wrote a blog post about
his experience in the Wikimedia blog:

We would like to thank all participants, partners, affiliates and experts
who have contributed to making this such a great event, and the Wikimedia
Foundation for their generous support.

Thank you,

Happy reading,

Cornelius, Nicole, Daniela and Wenke
(the WMCON team)

PS: Stay tuned for our upcoming announcement of the Wikimedia Conference
