The Wikimedia Foundation is collecting stories from Wikipedia programmers, designers, users, editors and donors from around the world to better represent who Wikipedia is.Telling your story makes Wikipedia better.
A big thank you to everyone for an amazing hackathon!
January 20-22, 2012; we brought together Wikipedia's senior coders with new developers to build applications running in Wikipedia itself, on mobile devices, or based on Wikipedia's content and data. Summary blog entry.
This is a free event put on by the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit that runs Wikipedia. You'll get a brief overview of all the key technologies you need, and then you'll have a weekend to build something amazing and make it open source. At the end, show it off and take the next step to get it running on our servers. Join us Friday night for drinks and conversations, and get ready for a weekend of coding. Food and drinks provided.
