The Wikimedia Hackathon is our yearly tech extravaganza! It's the ultimate gathering where the global tech community unites to connect, hack, engage in technical discussions, and brainstorm game-changing ideas. Developers from across the globe converge to enhance the technological backbone that fuels and enriches the Wikimedia projects, including MediaWiki and various areas of Wikimedia code development.
The theme for this edition aligns with last year's, emphasizing the gathering of individuals who have a track record of contributing to the technical aspects of Wikimedia projects. We're looking for those who are versed in navigating the technical ecosystem and are adept at working autonomously and collaborating effectively on projects.
Mark your calendars for the upcoming Wikimedia Hackathon scheduled for May 3rd – 5th 2024, in the captivating city of Tallinn, Estonia with support from Wikimedia Eesti (WMEE) – the official local chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation in Estonia. While the majority of our event will unfold onsite, certain parts of the program will be broadcasted online, ensuring accessibility to a wider audience. In the coming months, these pages will be your go-to resource for comprehensive details on attendance procedures, venue specifics, travel recommendations, accommodation options, and scholarship opportunities. Stay tuned!
