input requested re: metrics for hackathons

Jonathan Morgan
Hi all,

OrenBachman has asked several questions about how to evaluate the impact of
Hackathon events on the Evaluation Portal*[1]* and I'm hoping some folks
from this list can share their advice and perspectives.

Please read and respond there if you have input. Several outstanding
questions are:

1. do you know of any available publicly stats on how many first time
MediaWiki hackers make use of git/gerrit?

2. can you share any good strategies for getting as many attendees as
possible to set up git/gerrit userids prior to the event?

3. can you provide any examples of reports from previous Hackathons that do
a good job of describing various impact/participation metrics?

4. Safe space policy - How have breaches to the safe space policy been
handled in recent events? How have they been reported?

I'm going to follow up elsewhere about the legal issues OrenBachman raises,
but feel free to share your experiences with those as well.

Thanks for your assistance,
Jonathan

Hoi,

Please understand that one of the most important aspects do not get caught
in numbers.. Particularly the social aspects are very important. The fact
that people meet is often enough to get to new levels of understanding,
inspiration. This is the reason why people travel all over the world... to
inspire and they do.
Thanks,
