Back from #OSCAL2017
It’s been a while since the last “What’s going on?” episode, but now we’re back!
A lot has been done in this period, as our social pages and blog can confirm. We’ve announced the release of the German portal and we’ve launched the new series “Meet the authors“, with the first episode dedicated to our italian contributor Atakanz. The community is growing and contents on the platform are increasing day after day, as you could read from our reports. WikiToLearn never stops: knowledge only grows if shared, then let’s share!
But now let’s move to more recent activities: we’re just headed back from Tirana, where we attended Open Source Conference Albania 2017 (OSCAL). I’ll try to keep it short because words are often not enough. First of all a special mention goes to the organizers and all the volunteers, kudos to you all! WikiToLearn also gave special thanks to the conference, make sure not to miss them 😉
Matteo and Riccardo had two talks: “Social Engagement for the Open Source” and “Web backends for native frontends” respectively. We also attended several presentations: every talk was very inspiring and gave us the opportunity to improve ourself and to share ideas with other speakers.
On Saturday we had a WikiToLearn meet up, main issues? Community building, outreach and some cool plans for the future. The support of external people, such as OSCAL volunteers, was fundamental: thank you very much! Having an external point of view helped us to understand where and what we need to improve, what we are doing well and what people expect from us.
Back from the conference, it’s time to work. We have planned our activities for the next weeks, but no spoiler here 😉
Acttually you don’t deserve it, so here it is a short list of what you should expect:
- WikiToLearn has to be a powerful tool for your studying activity, that’s why we are planning to lunch WikiToLearn study groups;
- Community building is a great issue for us and we’d like to start working on this more and more;
- We’ve several books to import, TexLa will have to work hard: knowledge only grows if imported!
As you can see these taks demand strong efforts from the whole community. Are you corious about them? Want to help? You can find us at chat.wikitolearn.org and on join.wikitolearn.org, do not hesitate!We’ve learnt a lot from this country, which has suffered a lot in its history and now is trying to rise from its hashes. We hope all the best for the Open Labs community, you guys rock!
See you at #OSCAL2018
