Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

GLAMpipe is a tool for reading, manipulating and writing media and data to Wikimedia projects. It has been designed to serve as a mass upload tool to Wikimedia Commons, but we are expanding it for use with data imports to Wikidata.

In this tutorial we will go through the use of the tool for both types of use cases: creating a mass upload of images and a data import to Wikidata.

We will be adding links to new versions of the tool when we have that available for people to familiarize with the project. You may also join as a test user with your upload project, contact Susanna Ånäs
