Motivations for contributing to WAI

  • Get something back from contributing time & effort
  • Contribute to the body of knowledge
  • Build own skills
  • Name recognition in greater community


  • Intimidating


  • certain level of formality needed; yet also desire for less formal community
  • calls for actions not clear, e.g., in overview pages

Reinvent wheel

Why do people develop material that we already have at WAI?

  • people don't know resources are there
    • if I think of something, do I even go check the WAI website to see if it's there?
  • not developed here - just want to do own version
  • overall - too complex (e.g., can't get quick answer)
