The Wikimedia Hackathon is an annual event to bring the global technical community together to connect, hack, run technical discussions and explore new ideas. Developers from all around the world come together to improve the technological infrastructure and software that powers and benefits the Wikimedia projects - MediaWiki, or other areas of Wikimedia code development.
This edition of the Wikimedia Hackathon will focus on bringing together people who already contributed to technical aspects of the Wikimedia projects, who know how to find their way on the technical ecosystem, and who are able to work or collaborate on projects rather autonomously.
Other events in the Wikimedia Movement are targeted at newcomers: people who are new to Wikimedia and/or development are welcome to attend Wikimania 2023, where technical sessions will take place, or other newcomers-friendly events (feel free to add more to the list).
The Wikimedia Hackathon takes place on 19-21 May 2023 in the cultural center Technopolis in Athens, Greece. Most of the event will take place onsite; only the opening & closing ceremonies will be broadcasted online. Local communities are also welcome to organize pre-hackathon events or meetups. You can find more information on the subpages.
