Presets is the most important part when creating an object in OpenStreetMap. Without presets, all the objects will not be rendered in OpenStreetMap site because it doesn't have any attribute on it. Adding presets is one way to add more information in JOSM. Sometimes JOSM only has predefined presets which might give us challenges if we want to add another additional information, such as building structures or building level, because we need to add the key and value through add button in the right side of JOSM attribute panel.
The solution for this problem is we can create a custom presets by using the text editor in XML language. But, this can become a hassle if you don't have experience reading XML language. There is a simple method to create presets in a simple way using JOSM plugin. This workshop will teach about how to create a presets using JOSM. This workshop will talk about things you need to know before creating a presets, exploring Wiki Map Features, and create a simple presets in JOSM.
If you want to attend this talks, please make sure that you already have an experience to contribute in OpenStreetMap. Experience in key and value also good if you want to join the workshop.

I have contributed in OSM and joined with Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team in Indonesia since 2012. For more than 5 years, I have been involved in a lot of projects using OpenStreetMap in Indonesia. Some of my key contribution are:
First, I make OSM Module (as an editor) that combine basic and intermediate learning material for OpenStreetMap. At the beginning, This module was created for my coolaboration project with Wikimedia Indonesia in East Kalimantan but now after the project finished it available and free to download in https://openstreetmap.id/docs/ModulTutorialOSM25Januari2015.pdf

Secondly, I also make OSM wikimedia pages about refference objects for Indonesia Mapping. I made this page because there was misunderstanding between general page about Map features and real objects in Indonesia. So this page aimed to guide Indonesia OSM users and mapper to map right object with the right information. (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Id:Referensi_Atribut_Objek_OSM_Indonesia)

Thirdly, I was involved to make a document about OSM Data validation. This document now used in most of our training and we adding it to OSM wiki page as well. (https://github.com/harrymahar/indo-data-validation)
