Hackathon/Structured Commons

From Wikimania

Welcome to the Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons satellite track at the Wikimania 2018 Hackathon!

In 2018 and 2019, structured data will be deployed on Wikimedia Commons. This means many new opportunities to hack on existing and new tools, develop prototypes and experiments.

Several members of the Structured Data on Commons team and several interested and engaged volunteers will be present at the Wikimania hackathon (and next hackathons too!) to work together with anyone interested in the project.

Join the Structured Data on Commons table!
