The Wikimedia Hackathon is a major event that brings together developers from all around the world to improve the technological infrastructure of Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects, particularly the MediaWiki platform on which they are based, and other Wikimedia code development.
The Hackathon took place in Prague, Czechia, from May 17th-19th, 2019.
This is your opportunity to meet the Wikimedia tech community, learn about the technologies and projects that power Wikipedia and thousands of other MediaWiki based websites, and propose or join a demo-able project to hack on during the event.
- Developers new to Wikimedia and tech-curious editors are also welcome!
Just bring your laptop, ideas, and energy to contribute – we promise a great event, cool atmosphere, and an inspiring venue!
