The news about the eruption in Iceland caused some worry (and much tweeting, in case you didn’t know about it) amongst the attendees, although – to my knowledge – those that left day all returned home safely.
The day’s events began with a short demonstration from Wikimedia Foundation developer Ryan Kaldari of his new mass-upload tool. Conference attendees said they had “a tear in their eye” as he showed it in action.
The renovation of the GLAM portal was one of the main tasks that day with many new features implemented that day. A few others worked on new “How-to” pages and Q&As. A third set of people concentrated on a proposal (to be given to the relevant authority, probably the Foundation) on getting decent metrics for articles.
For lunch, we wandered out to a nearby market where people chose gyro, kebab and crepe. Not all at the same time, you understand.
Working parties were once again formed in the afternoon with the portal taking on a new tab header and layout. More work was also done on the metrics proposal.
The last presentation of the day was given by Maarten Dammers who spoke about the proposal his group had been working on that day. We discussed options for the funding the development of the metrics system, before a final plenary session took place in which conference convener, Liam Wyatt assigned roles as leaders and coordinators of the projects that had taken place over the weekend.
There is talk of another possible GLAMcamp, which will likely be held in Europe. Until then, happy editing.
