Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

This tutorial or workshop will introduce users that know a little bit about Python to Pywikibot. We will learn how to sign in with http://paws.wmflabs.org and set up a project there. Then we will look at the basics of retrieving information from Wikidata and Wikipedia using the bot.

What will attendees take away from this session?

Attendees will learn a little more about Python, Jupyter/IPython notebooks and the powerful Pywikibot framework. Most importantly the course will make it easier to make the first steps with Pywikibot for people that would have a hard time learning it on their own.

Theme of presentation
  • Technology, Interface & Infrastructure
For workshops and discussions, what level is the intended audience?

A little Python knowledge would be great. A basic Python online class will be enough to get you started.

Length of session (if other than 25 minutes, specify how long)
Minimum 60 minutes. 2 hours would be ideal.
Will you attend Wikimania if your submission is not accepted?
Sure.
Slides or further information (optional)

No slides. We will do everything interactive with PAWS.

Special requests
Is this Submission a Draft or Final?

  2. I'd certainly like to test and help improve such a tutorial. Any chance it could be made available beforehand already, ideally as a Jupyter notebook? Don't really want to wait with this until the Wikimania videos become available. --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 23:26, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
