oBJECTIVES


Create a usable, good looking and flexible

environment to showcase and

make the Toolkits available for all on the Web


How we did that?

  • Creation of a small working group (Roots: #CCSummit2013)
    • 1 problem? 3 planners and just one developer...
  • So we decided to host a hackathon in Buenos Aires, Argentina. We needed more devs and some designers
  • Creation of some communication assets to promote the event
  • Relations with the local community (CC Argentina & Wikimedia Argentina)
  • Spam, spam, spam
  • Host a hackathon!
 

What did we used?

  • Design: Adobe Suite (but open formats for the outputs), icons from The Noun Project, LayerVault
  • Development: HTML5, CSS3, GitHub, Wordpress
  • Planning: Google Docs, Dropbox, Etherpad, a few cups of coffee

WELCOME TO CCTOOLKITSCOM! (PROBABLY TOOLKITS.CREATIVECOMMONS.ORG SOON)



Let´s take a ride!


Tips

  • Feed your hackathon atendees =P
  • After the excitment of the Hackathon (The first CC hackathon in Argentina!), the working rythm drops significantly (Everyone has jobs, duties, relax times, etc.)  so
    • Try to finish everything at the event
    • Make a mailing list and keep up the relations with the participants
    • Ask them about their deliverables frequently but understand that everyone has other things to do
  • Keep a solid communication with the small working group to help each other and make it to the deadline



Thanks!
