Behind Citoid and likely any of our future citation parsing services is are a series of Zotero "translators". I recently wrote one and it had a bit of a learning curve. However, Sebastian from the Zotero project has offered to give a webinar on translator coding if there is interest. It would include basic scraping by manual code and the streamlined "Framework" (less coding). I'm trying to gauge interest, so please leave a note on my enwp talk page with the nature of your interest (e.g., are you just curious or do you plan to write translators for specific sites?) Please share with other language Wikipedias and let me know?

Potential webinar on Zotero translator coding
Hey @Czar. My colleagues and I were wondering whether Sebastian could be interested in turning the "webinar" into a Tech talk? We could make it happen around February or March, if so. Thanks for your help!
I confirmed that Sebastian's email in the linked CV is the right one, and he said Feb/March is fine
