Wikimania Hackathon 2017 will take place on Wednesday, 9 August 2017 and Thursday, 10 August 2017 during the Wikimania 2017 pre-conference.
Developers, designers and anyone interested in collaborating on a technical hacking project are welcome at the Hackathon. First Hackathon? Read this!
All participants of Hackathon are expected to respect and abide by the Wikimania Friendly Space Policy. Individuals not cooperating with this policy may be asked to leave the event.
Coming in early May!
All participants are free to run sessions and work on their own projects at the hackathon. More details on proposing sessions will be added soon.
The main focus of the Wikimania Hackathon 2017 is to make progress on as many Community Wishlist and Developer Wishlist tasks as possible. If you want to get involved in this effort in advance of the hackathon please contact the event organizers.
If you have your own ideas for a large-scale sprint, track or other project for the Wikimania hackathon and would like some help in advance coordinating please email Rachel Farrand <firstname.lastname@example.org> so we can work out the specifics.
