newcomers to join the experienced Wikipedians/Wikimedians. In addition to
the party, the event will be a modified unconference
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/unconference>, with experience sharing
sessions (organized on this wiki
talks <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/lightning_talk> to the whole assembly,
and of course open space
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_Space_Technology> sessions. The
Lightning Talks and Open Space will be determined during the event itself,
so it will be good to bring your ideas with you.
There is wifi access, and we will give you the log in details on-site.
Hope to see you soon.
