Wikimedia Philippines at Wikimania 2015

Since 2010, Wikimedia Philippines has been proudly sending Filipino Wikimedians to Wikimania. For this year's Wikimania, we're sending our largest delegation yet. Five of us will be in Mexico City this year, forming one of the largest Asian delegations, and we look forward to meeting all of you over the next few days!

¡Hay dos miembros hispanohablantes también en nuestro delegación! (indicado con icono de la bandera de México: Mexico)

Also, some of us will be bringing Filipino snacks to share! One of them is a box or two (or several boxes!) of delicious Filipino champorado which we hope will be better than the original Mexican champurrado. :P

Members of the WMPH Board of Trustees

Three members of the Wikimedia Philippines Board of Trustees—two current and one former—will be attending Wikimania this year.
