It’s been two weeks since we are back from the Sprint @CERN: we came back with lot of work done but much more to be done, that’s why I’ve decided to post something about our post-Sprint activity up to now.
These weeks have been full of important work for us and since I’m part of the editor team let me tell you two words about what we are working on.
We are focusing very much on organizational aspects such as the introduction of new users, our internal structure, solving some bugs related on how math is rendered in some browsers and the conversion from tex (or any other format) to mediawiki. According to me our strength is the fact that we are a young – and extremely willing – community: all these points are very important to us, since we understand that the future of the community is based on them and that’s why we are trying to do our best to deepen these aspects and not to leave anything to chance.
One of the things that I really appreciate is the attention we are paying to new users: we really care about them! We though about the idea of creating the role of “tutors” (i.e. more experienced users) to help newcomers, because we want everybody to be perfectly introduced in the community and to feel free to ask for any doubt. Moreover we’ve also decided to make editing experience even more user friendly than it is by using buttons and interactive tools on the personal userpage and on the editor environment. More precisely: new users are really important to us and we care about them, that’s why this point has been so fundamental in these weeks.
We are working, we are growing and the best is yet to come: #operation1000 is coming! 😀
