How to Edit the GHC Wiki

Standard
Will you be attending the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing 2012? Are you already going to be taking notes or blogging about the sessions you attend?

If you answered yes to these questions then consider signing up to post your notes or blogs for the sessions you are interested in. Here’s how to sign up, it’s super easy:

  1. Fill out the volunteer application, indicate your interest in wiki note taking.
  2. A Communities Committee member will contact you confirming your interest.
  3. Head over to our wiki and create an account if you do not already have one.
  4. If your account does not automatically work don’t worry, it may not have been approved yet.
  5. When you can log in. Fill out your user profile by talking about what communities you plan on being involved in, see mine or Valeries for an example.
  6. Head back on over to the wiki page and click edit on the day that you wish to sign up for a session.
  7. Replace the Sign Up text with your name linking to your profile in the correct cell of the table for the session you wish to blog or take notes on. (Here is an example of how to link to your profile page [[User:Bubbva|Valerie]] replace Bubbava with your user name and Valerie with your name)
  8. It is a good idea to preview your changes before saving them

And Voila! you are all signed up. We need to get as many of the sessions covered as possible so please take some time to figure out your schedule before the conference and sign up.

In order to give you an idea of what we are looking for, Note-takers will add their notes directly on the wiki using the wiki markup language, and these should be factual notes of what was actually said in the session. Bloggers will blog on their own blogs anything they like and edit the session wiki page to link to their blog from their.

If you do sign up, be sure to post your notes as soon as possible after the session because we have many followers who are not able to make it to this years GHC and we want to keep them well fed with new and updated content as the conference goes on.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.

Using Twitter at #GHC12

Standard
Love tweeting? Do it at #GHC12! 
New to twitter? Join now to get up to date information and connect with attendees of the conference, get live updates and answers to your questions at the conference and keep in contact with all of your new contacts after heading home.
The aim of this post is to give a few tips about using twitter in conjunction with the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing 2012. This year we’ve decided (the communities committee) to make some hash tags for use along with the #ghc12 tag. We have so many wonderful sessions that it would be hard to follow a discussion on for example the leadership track of session. 
So here is what you do to participate:
  • Have a general question or comment about GHC12? Just append #ghc12 to your tweet

  • Are you the author or panelist of a session in one of the track and you want to publicize it before the conference? append #ghc12 as well as the track hash tag found in the table below, ie #sec
  • You are an attendee and you want to follow the updates on a certain track? Do a search on #ghc12 and the track i.e., #sec and save your search to easily access it later
  • Just wanna talk about a specific track or topic, you’ve got the hang of it now, just append #ghc12 and the track hash tag i.e. #sec to your tweet!
