The WMF Community Tech team is working on a tool to help event organizers create, run and generate reports about editathons and similar events. In this session, I’ll discuss the research we’ve completed and the initial plans we will have produced for such a tool by the time of the conference. The sessions goal: to bring event organizers together for a discussion about their needs, to gather feedback on plans for the first version of the Event Tool (working title), and to generate ideas for future iterations.
